While You Were Sleeping Reviews

December 4, 2013
[Bullock] knows one of the secrets of doing romantic comedy: treating the romance as a good joke.

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.

The film's casual warmth may make you tolerate some of the shortcomings -- especially since Bullock seems to be having such a fine time with her first starring role.

Director Jon Turteltaub has a smooth style suited to classic farce and knows just how to pace the material to accentuate the positive.

As cute and cuddly a bedtime story as anyone could wish for.

This is a formula film, but it has the kind of good cheer and fine tuning that occasionally give slickness a good name.

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