While You Were Sleeping [DVD] [1995]

While You Were Sleeping unfortunately suggests what Hollywood Pictures was doing when its home video department released this DVD. With no extras on it beyond the original theatrical trailer, the Sandra Bullock romantic comedy is the only component of the disc. At least the film is available in its 1:85 widescreen and the transfer is well done. The audio is Dolby Surround, but it's neither digitally encoded nor 5:1. Such a commercially successful film warranted production notes or perhaps commentary by director Jon Turteltaub. Unfortunately, the DVD was released below the radar of the studio and even Sandra Bullock fans. The film has a French language track and a Spanish subtitle option.

While You Were Sleeping
This latter-day romantic screwball comedy stars Sandra Bullock as a love-starved subway toll booth operator, Lucy. Lucy pines for regular customer Peter Callaghan (Peter Gallagher), but the self-absorbed attorney pays her no heed. One day, Peter is beaten by a gang of thugs and tossed onto the tracks. Lucy rescues him from death. While he is comatose in the hospital, a comment she makes at his bedside is misinterpreted, and she then allows his family members, who haven't seen Peter in awhile, to believe that she is his fiancée. Peter's parents, Ox (Peter Boyle) and Midge (Micole Mercurio), take a liking to Lucy. But Lucy takes a liking to Peter's brother Jack (Bill Pullman), though Jack is suspicious about her claim to be Peter's intended. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi
