As Lucy, a lonely subway worker, she becomes smitten with a handsome stranger (Peter Gallagher — MALICE). But when she saves his life after he is been mugged and fallen into a coma, his hilariously offbeat circle of relatives 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 truly gets uproarious as she’s forced to select between the two!

If you do not 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 used to be 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 day by day commuter, Peter Callaghan (Peter Gallagher). She saves the object of her affection from certain death after he is mugged and falls onto the train tracks. Whilst Peter is in a coma, she lets his circle of relatives consider 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 to begin with indicate. It’s feel-good fluff, with characters and performances that keep you smiling through the drippy plot mechanics. –Jeff Shannon
