Predictable at best and just plain dull most of the time.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's cutesy enough to serve as a pleasant time-waster for those hungering for blue-collar romance in Chi town.

It plays like a movie dreamed up by people in a studio marketing department who'd decided to bare their souls.

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.

This setup is ludicrous, but actually it's the most credible thing in this whole sorry, dishonest film.

A sappy, negligible, thoroughly innocuous romantic comedy vehicle for Sandra Bullock.

Director Jon Turteltaub's movie is just plain bad.

A cute premise with engaging leads but little else to keep you awake.

The movie seems better suited to a holiday release. While You Were Sleeping arrives at the peak of spring, the only season that can make Christmas seem like an unwelcome visitor.

A perfect example of this unoriginal-but-enjoyable type of film making.

This smartly scripted Cinderella love story is crammed with charm and the expert direction of Jon Turteltaub hits all the right emotional buttons.

Surprisingly half-decent high-concept chick-flick material.

It's a long and frustrating wait, but While You Were Sleeping delivers all you can ask of a romantic comedy: the deluxe payoff.

If it has no great virtues, at least it has no great faults either.
