Product Description

Bullock/Pullman/Gallagher ~ While You Were Sleeping

From Amazon.co.uk

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 emphasises 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 --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

This is exactly the type of film that you can watch again and again - especially if you're a romantic. It's warm, funny and brilliantly acted. When Sandra Bullock see's the man she 'wants to marry' get mugged and pushed onto a rail track she saves him and after a mistake at the hospital (a nurse overhears Bullock talking to herself), his family turn up to find him in a coma and being told she's his fiancee.
From then on, circumstances (often comical) happen that means Bullock has to go along with the ruse. Then she meets her 'ideal' man's brother and falls in love with him.
Bullock's character is lovely and you really feel for her when she explains always she carries her passport around with her because she's going to Italy someday.
Bill Pullman as the brother she falls for is also very good. You can almost see the internal struggle he's fighting not to show that he has feelings for his brother's 'girl'. One of the best moments is when he plays cards with his comatose brother and says that the highest card gets Bullock - when it goes against him he then decides it's best of three, very sweet!
You always know it's going to turn out alright in the end but it's such fun getting there.
Good for a girls night in with lots of popcorn and chocolate - the perfect evening.

My favourite film of all time! After seeing it over 40 times now, it still hasn't lost its sparkle! Some films just manage to tap right into your soul, and this is one of them. There's honestly something for everyone in this film, all ages, male or female. If you're having a really rotten day/week/year, it'll cheer you up no end and it's a great way to escape from the crap life throws at you.
Sandra Bullock is hilarious as Lucy, but you've GOT to see Bill Pullman (plays Jack) in it. He's so unbelievably sexy in this film - makes you wanna melt! The chemistry between Bill and Sandy really draws you into the film, it's not one of those superficial types. And the situations that all the characters get into makes you laugh and cringe at the same time, especially when you realise that you've been in similar situations yourself!
So arm yourself with a duvet and a big box of chocolates, and go watch the best film ever! (just don't blame me if you fall in love with Bill!)

The first time i saw this film was at christmas time and since the film is set at christmas time also i found it most appropiate. This is definately one of my favourite films of all time. You can watch this film over and over. Both Bullock and Pullman's characters are beleivable and loveable. Everyone will find they relate to at least one chracter even if its commical Saul played by Jack Warden. Sandra really comes through in the main female role of Lucy Moderatz and by the end of the film i can gaurentee a tear.
This film gets 8/10 from me and at christmas time 9/10!!!

I saw this film in the cinema back in 1995 and quickly established itself as a family favourite.

This film does not disappoint and still brings a smile to my face even after more than ten years.

I always LOVED this film, which definitely isn't a "chick flick" but something you can see and enjoy together with your better half - and the magic of "While you were sleeping" works as well on one of the first dates, as near the silver wedding anniversary...

This is the story of a lonely shy girl named Lucy (Sandra Bullock) whose life is defined by a monotonous dead end job and a completely hopeless crush on a handsome wealthy man (Peter Gallegher) she meets every day, but who never looked at her, not even once... Then one day her whole world is overwhelmed by a kind of powerful (albeit non-lethal) tsunami - and she will be carried by this gentle but irresistible wave in a direction she would never have suspected... I will say no more here about the story.

The operative words when describing this film are "warm", "gentle" and "adorable". There is absolutely nothing dark in it, even if at one moment appears a furious shrew (Ally Walker, grandiose) - but even she is somehow funny rather than bad... There is also a comatose patient, a freak incident involving a crayon, some furniture breaking (mostly accidental), pants ripping (completely accidental) and of course there is Joe Fusco Jr (Michael Rispoli, fantastic) whose very existence on this planet may seem to be an aggression against the rest of humanity - but all of this just gives the occasion for more humour.

Humour in this film is of best quality, with absolutely NO strong language, but with some pretty good one liners and verbal fencing. And then there is of course THE scene with the Callaghan family eating dinner together and having a conversation... Words can hardly describe this scene but I will always consider this as a great injustice that nobody was nominated to the Oscars for it...
