Movie Monday.


Tonight I watched the 1995 movie, While you were Sleeping.
It starred Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman, Peter Gallagher, Peter Boyle, & Jack Warden.
I kinda adore this movie. :)
(and any other movie with Sandra Bullock!!)

Lucy (Sandra Bullock) is a ticket booth collector at a train station in Chicago.
She is living alone with no family.
Peter (Peter Gallagher) happens to enter the train station that morning.
While attempting to get on the train, Peter is in an accident that almost kills him.
Luckily, Lucy was at hand to help. ;)

Peter is taken to the hospital.
Lucy is unable to see him because she isn't family.
So, the nurse helps her by saying she is Peter's fiance.
Well, that is where the story gets really good.
Peter's family shows up and Lucy really likes them.
So she pretends to be Peter's fiance because she can't bare to tell them otherwise.
Plus, she begins to enjoy having a "family" around for once.

All the while, Jack (Bill Pullman), Peter's brother is there for Lucy through a hard week.
As fate would have it, they begin falling for each other, but unable to tell each other.
Since, ya know, Lucy is pretending to be engaged to his brother and all. :/

So, Peter finally wakes up only to realize he is "engaged" to someone he can't remember.
After some time, he warms up to Lucy and realizes he has been given a second chance at life.
Thus, becoming a "new man".
& Peter wants to marry Lucy after all!

Oh dear. :/

The wedding begins only to be cut short by Lucy.
She tells his parents that she is in love with their son.
& it isn't Peter! Yikes!

& the rest is history. :)

Sorry that I gave the ending away to those who haven't seen it.
I couldn't help myself.
It's an old & cheesy movie, but I love it! :)

Happy Happy Monday!
