In this movie, Sandra Bullock takes on the role of Lucy, a recently single transit worker. Lucy’s life is turned upside down when she saves her crush, Peter, after he falls onto train tracks, rendering him unconscious. After this horrific accident, Peter is in a coma. While visiting Peter in the hospital, Lucy inadvertently convinces Peter’s family that she is his fiance. To make matters worse, as Lucy spends more time with Peter’s family, she finds herself falling head over heels in love with Jack, Peter’s younger brother. After Peter wakes up, Lucy must now deal with the consequences of her actions. Although While You Were Sleeping has many positive reviews, I absolutely hated this movie. Lucy and Peter’s relationship felt too forced and rushed. This is definitely not one of Sandra Bullock's greatest works.

The BEST romantic comedy, ever. Sandra Bullock could not be more adorable and Bill Pullman is so good as the quiet handsome guy. Love love love this movie.

Funny, Hilarious!!! My favorite movie so far. Sandra Bullock is simply cute in this movie. Romantic Story with twist and turns that will have you laughing to the end. Seen it about 15 times. Line after line it is delightful to see over and over again.

Sandra Bullock is the Queen of Romantic Comedies. And I don't get the appeal whatsoever...

I love this movie! Even though it takes place over Christmas and New Year's, it's not a "Christmasy" movie--it can be watched all year long. Yes, the basic premise is a bit hard to believe, but it's so much fun! This is one of my all-time favorites.

" Peter, once asked me when it was that I fell in love Jack. And I told him it was while you were sleeping."
