Random 90s Movie Review #11: While You Were Sleeping

Chick Flick Month trudges on with our third review:

While You Were Sleeping, from 1995. And boy, I tell you it sure is 90s. Think of any romantic comedy from the early 90s and this one will definitely share some characteristics with it. First, it's set in a big city. There's a big emphasis on family. The coma guy is well into adulthood, yet has a sister still living at home (for some reason it was always important to have that younger sibling). And naturally, there are many misunderstandings that could have easily been cleared up within a matter of seconds. Throw in a botched wedding at a hospital, and you've got yourself a hit!

Why you should watch this movie: I found it to be pretty watchable. It's got just the right amount of sappiness without going overboard. Casting was good; the grandma was the mom from Mary Poppins! Peter Gallagher is also a hunk, but maybe that's just my opinion.

Why you shouldn't watch this movie: There are a few cringe-worthy moments where you'll want to scream, "Just tell them the truth already!"

I Heart the Nineties Rating: One snap up
