A Lot of Fun

This is one of the better movies of its genre. Sandra Bullock plays a likable girl whose main desire in life is to get a stamp in her passport from a foreign country. Having lost both parents, she lives with her cat in a small Chicago apartment with her cat and has to avoid the stereotypical Italian (a la Andrew Dice Clay) super's son's advances.

She works as a token booth clerk and fantasizes about a rich passenger that passes her booth daily. One day he is pushed to the tracks by some teens and knocked unconscious. Bullock jumps to the tracks and saves him and then goes with him to the hospital. He is in a coma and when his family comes to visit, they mistakenly think that Bullock is his fiancée.

Bullock doesn't have the heart to tell them she isn't, especially because they are so nice and provide Bullock with the family affection that she is missing. It gets real interesting when Bullock slowly starts falling for the coma man's brother. Tension mounts knowing that when the coma man wakes, Bullock will be exposed as a fake.

This was a really fun movie.

In this case, Lucy Moderatz (Sandra Bullock) lies to the object of her affection (Peter Gallagher) family in order to get close …
