Night 3 - While You Were Sleeping

Tagline - A story about love at second sight.

Directed by Jon Turtletaub (Phenomenon and National Treasure) and released on April 21, 1995 by Buena Vista Pictures (Rated PG). Lucy (Sandra Bullock) saves Peter (Peter Gallagher), the man of her dreams whom she has never met, when he falls on the subway tracks. While at the hospital, Peter is in a coma and Lucy is mistaken for his fiancee by his family. Tired of being alone, she goes along with the charade until she meets Jack (Bill Pullman), Peter's brother. Maybe love has different plans for her.

OK, here's one where nobody dies! 8)

This is a funny and romantic movie. Yes, like most romantic comedies, it does go a little over the top. But you go with it anyways because it's fun. Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman are in fine form here and have good on-screen chemistry. If you haven't seen it it's well worth it. If you have seen it it's time for another watch!

Take a look at the original trailer

Some trivia about the movie...
1. The role of Lucy was written for Demi Moore. Sandra Bullock took the role, saying she could relate to it having just broken up from a four year relationship.
2. The original screenplay was about a woman in a coma and a man pretending to be her fiancee. Many studio executives thought this to be too predatory, but one suggested reversing the roles. Once the script was rewritten, the movie was picked up by Hollywood Pictures.   
3. The Callahans' house is located in LaGrange, a suburb of Chicago.
4. Julia Roberts turned down the role of Lucy Moderatz.   
5. James Spader and Dylan McDermott were considered for the role of Jack Callaghan.   
6. The can of cat food changes from one that requires a can opener to one with a ring-pull.


  1. I love that movie. I do not know how many times I have seen it.

  2. oh, a definite favorite!!
    you snooze, you lose :-)

  3. I love this one, I haven't seen for a couple of years now, it's time I watch it again!!

  4. yeah, I agree, if it was reversed and the woman was in a coma, that would be sorta creepy, unless the guy was played by Cary Grant lol

  5. Thanks for the trivia! It's weird to think how it might have worked with a gender switch.

  6. I've never seen this one, I usually don't like over-th-top romantic comedies.. but I do like Bill Pullma.
