Product Description

From the Back Cover

While You Were Sleeping:
Not since Pretty Woman has a romantic comedy radiated such warmth, wit and irresistible charm! Sandra Bullock (Speed) is Lucy – a lonely subway worker infatuated with a gorgeous man she’s only seen from afar. After she saves his life, she’s mistaken for his fiancée as he lies unconscious in a hospital. Suddenly Lucy finds herself in the welcoming arms of the man’s family and falling in love with his brother, Jack (Bill Pullman - Casper). But when the comatose man awakens, Lucy also finds herself in the worst predicament of her life!

Honeymoon in Vegas:
On his wedding trip to Las Vegas, Jack Singer (Nicholas Cage - Gone in 60 Seconds), a commitment-phobe bridegroom, loses an expensive round of poker to a professional high-stakes gambler, Tommy Korman (James Caan - Mickey Blue Eyes). Unable to cover his loss, Jack agrees to turn his fiancee, Betsy (Sarah Jessica Parker - Sex in the City), over to Tommy for the weekend. Jack realises too late that the game was all a setup to get Tommy close to Betsy, who’s a dead ringer for Tommy’s late wife. Jack must then track down Tommy and Betsy to reclaim his fiancée, the girl of his dreams. Who will be the lucky couple that gets to celebrate their Honeymoon in Vegas?

One of those double bill videos where there isn't much of a connection between the films. The theme here is `romance' but these are very different stories. While You Were Sleeping is a soppy chick flick and Honeymoon In Vegas is a comedy about relationships (and doesn't feature any honeymoons). I bought the video without having seen either film, as at the time I was a fan of both Nicolas Cage and Bill Pullman. I'm not much of a fan these days, but both these leads are very good, whereas their female leads (Sandra Bullock and Sarah Jessica Parker) struggle to convince. The trouble here is if you want to watch Honeymoon In Vegas you will have to fast forward through While You Were Sleeping, unless you always watch them in order. There are no extras, but with over three hours of film on one video, that isn't to be expected.

While You Were Sleeping - Lucy is infatuated with a man she has never spoken to, and saves his life. He's rushed to hospital in a coma and due to some `hilarious' circumstances, his family become convinced she is his fiancée.

This is a funny film, and I did laugh, but some of the more serious aspects are never addressed, such as a man being in a coma or a complete stranger insinuating her way into a family.

It's also self-indulgently sentimental, and if you're not crying at how lonely you are and how beautiful the story is, you'll be irritated by the excessive sentimentality.

This worked on me the first time round, but rewatches have left me unimpressed and the ending is rushed, destroying the simmering romance central to the plot.

The soundtrack appears to be the same one used in every chick flick, and may grate.
