Holiday romantic comedies ranked | EW.com
Sandra Bullock stars in John Turteltaub’s While You Were Sleeping as Lucy, a train token collector who has developed a crush, from afar, on a regular commuter. One day she saves him from an oncoming train and then lies, saying she’s his fiancée, so that the the hospital will let her see him after he falls into a coma. Keeping up the charade for his entire family, Lucy spends Christmas with them and eventually falls for his brother. If you hate rom-coms built on One Big Lie, this basically sounds like your worst nightmare — but wait! Frustrating as the premise is, Bullock saves it from being a painful exercise in digging oneself deeper, and she and Bill Pullman (as the comatose man’s brother) have authentic chemistry.
