You'll fall in love with WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING, the hit romantic comedy that woke everyone up to adorable Sandra Bullock (SPEED, A TIME TO KILL). As Lucy, a lonely subway worker, she becomes smitten with a handsome stranger (Peter Gallagher -- MALICE). But when she saves his life after he's been mugged and fallen into a coma, his hilariously offbeat family mistakes her for his fiancee! Soon, the mix-ups escalate as Lucy fabricates a life between herself and a man she's never met! And when Lucy falls for his charming brother (Bill Pullman -- INDEPENDENCE DAY) the situation really gets uproarious as she's forced to make a choice between the two!
If you don't mind a heavy dose of schmaltz and sentiment, this romantic comedy has a gentle way of seducing you with its charms. While You Were Sleeping was the first starring role for Sandra Bullock after her blockbuster success in Speed. In a role that nicely emphasizes her easygoing appeal, Bullock is the reason the movie works at all. She plays Lucy Eleanor Moderatz, a Chicago Transit tollbooth clerk who's hopelessly smitten with a daily commuter, Peter Callaghan (Peter Gallagher). She saves the object of her affection from certain death after he's mugged and falls onto the train tracks. While Peter is in a coma, she lets his family believe that she is his fiancée, and surprisingly finds herself drawn to his brother (Bill Pullman), for whom the attraction is definitely mutual. How Lucy gets out of this amorous predicament is what makes this pleasant movie less predictable than its familiar ingredients would initially indicate. It's feel-good fluff, with characters and performances that keep you smiling through the drippy plot mechanics. --Jeff Shannon

I think of this movie as somewhat of a Christmas one because it's set in the timeframe of Christmas but it is not about the holiday, rather it's about the personal relationships of the characters. Cute, fun and warm hearted. ENJOY!!!!
Bullock and Pullman shared wonderful chemistry. Bullock and the Pullman's family shared wonderful chemistry. Bullock even shared wonderful chemistry with Joe Jr., the apartment super's son.
It makes me long for some magic and family bond during the holiday season. Strangely, it never makes a life long single like me feeling depressed. It does the opposite, lifting me out of gloom and into warm and fuzzy.
As a past Chicago resident I loved this movie not only for the fun & funny script, but to see how real people live! Sandra Bullock's apartment in the 3 story greystone/brownstone is how real people live. Parking problems, cold, ice, public transportation, and "you's" from the apartment owner's son are real situations you will find.
Truly funny and an overall fantastic movie!
