While You Were Sleeping is an interesting film with plenty of hilarious scenes and great acting from Sandra Bullock (and an actually good performance from Bill Pullman). This film is funny from start to finish with several great quotes. Don’t let you think that this film is fully a comedy there are several scenes that build tension and advance the romantic story line of the film. If you are looking for a relaxing cuddle up with your special someone than this film is for you, it is definitely a must own film.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
This film is funny and quirky. There are several funny scenes in it that make it great from Bill Pullman intensely grilling Sandra Bullock to see if she is actually the fiance instead of a subway teller. Another is when the family is gathered around for Christmas and they begin talking it is filled with great one liners like “Beef and Nazis” it is a funny scenes. The one thing though that really sets this film apart is Jack Warden as Saul he does an incredible job of being not only a sage for the film, but also a great comedian which really helps the film move and flow correctly. Peter Gallagher does a great job playing the clueless idiot and makes the film hilarious in a different right. It’s a decent film, but it does lack certain aspects that make it a great film.
