Now she is a part of his family, and with a strong heart and fate on her side, others begin to realize what a terrific person she is, especially Jack, Peter's brother.

The shot of the boy delivering newspapers early in the film was supposed to show him successfully throwing three papers before cutting to the house with Lucy waking up. He fell on the first take while throwing his second paper, breaking his wrist. The director opted to add the shot in the final cut of the film. See more »
The monitor in the ICU shows Peter's blood pressure to be 29/11, not sustainable for life and his heart rate is 80, too high for a coma. The line showing his heart rate is also flat which is what happens when the heart stops beating. See more »
Scumbag! You're engaged?
May I remind you that you proposed to me?
You said no. We broke up.
No, no. I was confused, we stepped back.
You moved to Portugal.
Yes, well, I didn't think you were going to run out and marry the first bimbo you came across.
Lucy's not a bimbo.
Lucy? Lucy who?

Lovely little film that has the lonely Sandra Bullock admiring high-class businessman Peter Gallagher from afar in her toll booth on the subway. Then one day he is attacked by a couple of muggers and Bullock saves his life by getting him to the hospital. Naturally Gallagher is in a comatose state after the attack. A true misunderstanding makes it appear that Bullock is Gallagher's fiance and typical confusion ensues. Now Gallagher's family all believe that Bullock really is his woman. Gallagher's brother (Bill Pullman) is suspicious though, but slowly starts to believe Bullock as well. He then starts to fall in love with her and vice versa. A great romantic comedy that is so pure and well-made that it is near impossible to say anything negative about it. It is not a perfect film, but it is a very likeable movie that delivers what it promises. 4 stars out of 5.
