Think back to when you were a young girl. Did you ever have the fear of being alone forever or finding the right guy for you? That use to be one of my biggest fears. I hated the idea of being along but even more so I hated the idea of being with the wrong person. This is exactly how Lucy felt in the movie While You Were Sleeping.
She felt alone but not so alone to she would just settle for just anyone like Joe Jr. She was so excited when she saw the man that she thought was the most perfect man in the world Peter Callaghan but little did she now that he still was not even the man for her.As alone Lucy was she was never so alone that would settle for Joe Jr. Joe Jr. was the son of the man that owned the building Lucy lived in. Joe Jr.
is one of these guys that women run from. He is egotistical, thinks he is God’s gift to women, Mr. Cool, and he rides on his dad’s name. His outward appearance is sloppy and disgusting.
He keeps hitting on Lucy but she does not ever go out with him. Besides asking her out all the time he follows her around. He knocks on her door and claims that she stood him up on their date that she had not agreed to go on.He hides in her closet and tries on her shoes.
He tells her that if he can move he would have his father knock some of the rent off if she lets him move in, and even his father is trying to set them up. His last attempt of winning Lucy is when he brings her flowers and gives her a really big hug. When Jack comes goes the apartment to try and find out information on Lucy, Joe Jr. is out front working on his car and he tells Jack about how him and Lucy are together.Besides asking her out all the time he Lucy would rather go home to her cat then be with Joe Jr. While Lucy did not want to be with Joe Jr.
She thought she found the perfect man and the man she wanted to be with but the only thing is that she has never spoke to him. The only time she sees him is at her work when he is paying his toll to get on the train. She has tried to speak with him but it never works until one day when he is pushed from the platform at the train station and she was the only person there. She went to check on him and ended up saving his life.
She followed him to the hospital where there was a mix up and his family thought she was engaged to him.While she was busy trying to pretend that she was engaged to Peter Callaghan she meet his brother Jack Callaghan. While Peter was in a coma Lucy began to figure out who he was and what he was about while starting to fall for Jack. Peter turned out to be very similar to Joe Jr.
Peter was also egotistical and he was very stuck on himself. He had pictures of himself in his house and his wallet. Once Peter came to he did not know who Lucy was and they all figured that he had amnesia.After Peter had a long talk with his godfather who told him to marry Lucy anyways. Peter asked Lucy “again” to marry him and of course she excepted because that is what she wanted right? Right before the wedding she asked Jack if there was any reason she should not marry his brother and he told her he could not give her a reason. So Lucy was going to marry Peter.
While Peter was in his coma Lucy started hanging out with his brother Jack. Jack did not believe that Lucy and Peter were engaged; instead he thought Lucy was blackmailing him in to marrying her.At first he kept interrogating her asking her questions like which baseball team does he like, what is his favorite song, and what is his favorite ice cream. After all the interrogation she finally told them a story that one of his coworkers told her. After that Jack believed she was engaged, but he still kept following her around and spending time with her. While spending time with her he started to fall for her and she started to fall for him.
When she asked him about marrying his brother he could not tell her that he did not want her marrying his brother.At the wedding Lucy walked down the aisle and as soon as the preacher started the ceremony she objected to the wedding as well as Jack. As she started to explain why she told the family that she fell in love with their son and they were like we know and that is when she corrected them and said not that son but that one pointing to Jack. After that she ran out and figured that she would never see them again but little did she know that on her last day at work Jack would come by and proposed to her and of course she accepted and they were married.As you can see it is a big struggle to find the right person and sometimes you will find a person that you think is the right one but it may turn out that there is someone some much better for you and you have to wait until that person comes along.
Lucy was alone and she did not like it but she was not going to settle for just anyone. She knew that she had to wait until that perfect person came along and even when she thought she had found him she had not. After awhile she figured it out and set everything straight. So I have figured out that I just have to wait and the right person will come along.
