Product Description

Product Description

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!

Amazon.ca

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

While You Were Sleeping is endearingly sweet and laugh-out-loud funny. Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman, the romantic leads, are excellently cast and have an even more excellent chemistry between each other. This movie will have you awwwing at the love between Lucy and Jack, and laughing at the family and situation. Highlight to look out for is the icy sidewalk scene- very very well done!! This movie is also very appropriate. In all, great movie, a little predictable but cute!

I really enjoy watching this movie especially around Christmas time and New Years. It really gets me into the spirit of things. Yes, it's one of those feel good movies that puts a warm glow around your heart. The characters are well played, the storyline is simple but sweet, and I love the humour used as they each deal with their own problems and perspectives about life. And, she does get the guy in the end, well, at least his brother! Which just shows that you should approach love with an open mind, because you may find it in the most unexpected places.

Honestly, I could watch that movie over and over and never get tired. This is the sweetest story I have ever seen. Sandra Bullock is giving a very believable performance here and Bill Pullman...oh my...isn't he the most handsome actor? YES. All the actors in that movie act brilliantly, everybody is "in it", so much so that we nearly believe that the story really happened somewhere in Chicago. I am thinking of buying the DVD so I can watch it whenever I want to. A treasure of a movie!!

When I heard about this film I thought it would be an OK romantic comedy, I like Sandra Bullock films so I thought it would be OK. I did not expect to love this film. It was great! The two lead roles were perfectly cast with Bullock as hopeless Lucy and Bill Pullman as the really cute Jack. I like films where I feel for the characters and in this film I really did. The story goes that Lucy works in a ticket booth in a train station and one day sees a handsome man buying a ticket. She falls in love with him at first sight. On Christmas Day this handsome stranger is waiting for his train when his is mugged and falls onto the tracks. Luckily Lucy saves him. But he is now in a coma. Not wanting to give too much away Lucy gets involved in a big lie when his family think that she is his fiancée.
A really fun, sweet and very romantic film, which can be watch again and again. A must see for all romantics everywhere!

Well, it all depends on your taste in movies and your mood at the time - and whether or not you're enamored of Sandra Bullock. If you enjoy the occasional romantic chick flick, if you're in the mood to watch something upbeat that's not too deep, and if you think Sandra Bullock is just fine, thank you very much, then this is the movie for you.
While You Were Sleeping was Bullock's first starring role after her blockbuster success in Speed, and it does a good job of showcasing her wide appeal to viewing audiences. She captures our support, trust, and interest from the very beginning, playing a Chicago tollbooth ticket-taker who has a 'thing' for a commuter guy she sees go thru her turnstile daily. Then he's mugged, she saves him, and somehow allows her family to believe that she's his fiancée - and then, the plot thickens. At the bedside of this unconscious guy, she meets his brother - and she falls even harder for him.
Okay, that's enuf: watch the rest of it yourself. Just be on the lookout for the scent where they're walking on an icy sidewalk - it's just awfully well done, as is the rest of the movie.
...but only if you like this sort of thing! I sure did.

This is the best romantic comedy I own! I have watched this movie over and over again...praying that one day I might be entangled in a love triangle that include Peter Gallagher and Bill Pullman!
Lucy is in love with Peter. Only problem is that she's never met him, but sees him everday at the train token booth. One day she rescues him from the throes of an oncoming train and takes him to the hospital. A nurse thinks that she's his fiancee and breaks the news to Peter's family that his "fiancee" is the one who saved his life! Lucy is now forced to carry on a lie while Peter is in a coma while falling in love with his family...mainly his dashing brother, Jack.
The best part of this movie is Peter's family! They remind me of mine in that they are always in my home, in my business, and in my love life...but they are the best! This movie is a great date movie, whether it's your first date or a movie night with your husband! Guys will love this too because it's not so much sappy as it is hilarious! It's my favorite!!!

Sandra Bullock has a natural way of acting that makes you wonder whether she is as she comes across on the screen. You can discern her character from "Speed" in this movie, albeit a more relaxed version of that character. It's Sandra's charm that will entrance a viewer and give you a warm and fuzzy feeling by the end of the movie.
Lucy Moderatz (Bullock) is alone and lonely, aggravated by her job as a token taker for the Chicago Transit system. Her father passed away the previous year, she has no close friends, and her mother passed away many years earlier. Each morning a handsome and somewhat debonair man stops by her window. Lucy is in love with him in her mind, but he never talks to her, and it is not likely that he will.
On another lonely Christmas Day Lucy is stuck working while all her co-workers are at home with their families. The debonair gentleman comes to her window and wishes her a Merry Christmas, and suddenly Lucy finds herself at a total loss for words. As Lucy is berating herself for her sudden lack of verbal skill, the handsome man is accosted by two thugs who attempt to rob him. In the course of the robbery, the man is shoved onto the railroad tracks, where a train is imminent.
Lucy rushes out of her cage as the thugs run away, jumps down onto the tracks, and pulls the man off the rails just as a train rushes over the spot where he was lying but moments before. Concerned for the man's welfare, Lucy follows him to the hospital, where a nurse overhears Lucy muttering to herself, and believes Lucy to be the man's fiancé. Suddenly Lucy is in the middle of a big, friendly family. The handsome man is Peter Callaghan, played by Peter Gallagher, an attorney.
Lucy loves being part of the family, and they quickly grow to love her.
