Lessons Learned from ‘While You Were Sleeping’

A few times each year, I like to look back on a beloved movie and share lessons I have learned while watching said movie over and over and over again. Since it’s December, I traditionally toss a little love to favorite Christmas movies, like The Holiday or Love Actually. This year, I’m turning the time table waaaayyyy back to 1995.

Aside from feeling really, really old, I also felt really, really excited when my friend Stephanie suggested we go see the flick during a special anniversary showing at our local movie theater. Watching Ducky Dale on the big screen was everything I hoped it would be — and more. The fashion was awesomely abysmal. The music was interestingly quirky. Molly
