An enjoyable film

  • Jan 1, 2005
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 a 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 fiancee.

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 wben the coma man wakes, Bullock will be exposed as a fake.

This was a really fun movie.
