Synopsis

This latter-day romantic screwball comedy stars Sandra Bullock as a love-starved subway toll booth operator, Lucy. Toll booth operator Lucy pines for regular customer Peter, but the self-absorbed attorney pays her no attention. when Peter is beaten by a gang of thugs and left onto the tracks, Lucy rescues him. While he is comatose in the hospital, a comment she makes at his bedside is misinterpreted, and she then allows his family members, who haven't seen Peter in a while, to believe that she is his fiancée. Peter's parents, Ox and Midge, take a liking to Lucy. But Lucy takes a liking to Peter's brother Jack, though Jack is suspicious about her claim to be Peter's intended.
