While You Were Sleeping (1995)
Critic Consensus: While You Were Sleeping is built wholly from familiar ingredients, but assembled with such skill -- and with such a charming performance from Sandra Bullock -- that it gives formula a good name.

Critic Reviews for While You Were Sleeping
[Bullock] knows one of the secrets of doing romantic comedy: treating the romance as a good joke.
Compared to While You Were Sleeping, even the half-baked scenario of the Marisa Tomei-Robert Downey Jr. romance Only You looks witty and inventive.
It's Bullock's first shot at a role in which she plays second fiddle neither to males nor special effects. And she turns out to be every bit as delightful as anyone might have expected.
A cute premise with engaging leads but little else to keep you awake.
It plays like a movie dreamed up by people in a studio marketing department who'd decided to bare their souls.
Audience Reviews for While You Were Sleeping
The key to this movie was Bill Pullman and Sanda Bullock clicking on such a natural level. They made the movie feel right. I love this movie. Im a sappy guy so this is a winner for me. One of my favorite romantic comedies.
It's cheesy, ridiculous and formulaic. Everything you want in a rom-com.
An ok early Rom-Com starring Sandra Bullock. It's cheesy and predictable but it has a certain likability about it nevertheless.
