This is one of my favorite 'holiday' movies. They just don't make movies like this anymore.

While You Were Sleeping is a delightful romantic holiday film that’s whimsical and fun. One lonely Christmas a Chicago toll worker saves the man of her dreams (but has never met) from being run over by a subway car, and when she’s mistaken for his fiancée at the hospital she’s welcomed into his family. Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman lead the cast and have great chemistry together. Bullock in particular is especially charming as a down to earth, girl next door type character. And the comedy is incredibly well-written, pulling off the farcical humor almost effortlessly. Lighthearted and full of laughs, While You Were Sleeping is a good, heartwarming family comedy.

A classic 90s film that's a pleasure to revisit. Sandy B always nails that awkward cute comedy balance and you fall in love with the family just as she does.

Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.

This feels like a classic watch, like a movie that started a trope...but I can't think of a single other movie that did what this movie does. Sure there are movies about comas, amnesia, lying, but they don't do it in the same way, and I ho More

Insanely cheesy and overtly sentimental... yet, I kinda like 'While You Were Sleeping'.

Sandra Bullock is probably the main reason for the latter, as she gives a near perfect performance for this sorta role. The rest of the cast are good too, from Bill Pullman to Peter Gallagher to Jason Bernard. More
