While You Were Sleeping is a connect-the-dots romantic comedy about a lonely transit-booth collector, a comatose businessman, his nice-guy brother and a crowd of meddlesome character actors hanging around to deliver a line or two. Clumsily designed to emulate the success of Sleepless in Seattle (Charmless in Chicago?), the film stars the preternaturally perky Sandra Bullock, the caterpillar-eyebrowed Peter Gallagher and ubiquitous everyman Bill Pullman. While its central conceit - girl falls for boy, boy falls (literally)

The wedding ritual is a most anxious kind of drama. The stars, of course, are the bride and groom. Antagonists and supporting players abound among the infighting in-laws and critical friends. The director is whoever officiates at the ceremony, be it judge or preacher. The "stage manager" coordinates the event and caters the reception. Conflicts range from the trivial to the epochal, from where the newlyweds plan to spend the honeymoon to where they plan to spend the rest of their lives.

Udder whimsy from the verdant, undulating hills of ever-cinematic New Zealand, The Price of Milk is a too-cute-by-half exercise in magic realism in which a scruffy dairy farmer (Karl Urban) and his free-spirited fiancee (Danielle Cormack) experience a serious case of matrimonial jitters. Written and directed by Harry Sinclair in a somewhat strained tone of offbeat merriment, this fairy-tale-like musing on true love in cynical times also involves a talismanic quilt, an agoraphobic dog, an eccentric old Maori woman and her team of Maori nephews, and several paddocks' worth of cows.

Prelude to a Kiss, newly arrived at the Helen Hayes Theater, is not really a silly play. It just acts like one. Playwright Craig Lucas presumably is saying something about the strength and nature of true love in this fantasy about a young man whose bride unwittingly exchanges bodies with an old man right after the wedding ceremony. True love is the husband planting a kiss squarely on the lips of his soul mate, even if she happens then and there to be indistinguishable from that superb, grizzled character actor, Barnard Hughes.

Prince Albert hints of finding true love Here's a story of sexual intrigue we're even less inclined to believe than Monica Lewinsky's: Prince Albert of Monaco says he has a serious girlfriend, and he'd like to marry her, but he just can't reveal her name. "It is a little premature to say if she will share my life, and even too soon to talk about it," the 40-year-old heir to the throne told Paris Match magazine. "It is not solely up to me. " Speaking in the vaguest of vagaries, he added: "If things evolve as I hope they do with this woman, there is a real possibility that this is a serious relationship.

Dear Halle Berry: Hope this works out better than the David Justice thing. Yes, we know those are cynical sentiments to offer when a girl announces her engagement. But we're still smarting from the actress and the baseball star's lengthy, vituperative 1996 divorce, which featured restraining orders, bicoastal jurisdictions, suicide threats and his-'n'-hers tabloid coverage. If she's learned to love again, God bless her. This week, Berry told the world - through the medium of "Entertainment Tonight" - that she plans to marry the current man in her life, Eric Benet.

Getting on a game show was on my list of "Things to Do in L.A. " So was finding a stunning blond California girl. So, after I was rejected for "Scrabble," I decided "The New Dating Game" might fulfill two goals. Auditions were tough. A few dozen guys nervously gathered at the Sunset Gower Studios, eyeing each other and filling out forms. Contest coordinator Lance Romance - no one ever knew if it was his real name - told us to answer honestly, but be clever. Guys around me were cabbage farmers-actors or shoe salesmen-models.

Even after she had spent three hours in a Lambertville bar listening to a toilet seat manufacturer talk about his work - a man so self-absorbed, he didn't ask her how old she was - Anna Marie Hall kept her faith in the dating service. She persevered, even when one magnanimous suitor insisted that because he had paid for the movie ticket, she should pay for the popcorn. And the date with the guy from New Hope who was heading to a tavern in a thunderstorm when lightning struck a tree, which fell in front of them so they were rear-ended by another car . . . just another chapter in a book with a happy ending.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: I have a male best friend whom I have (or had) an incredibly deep and really beautiful relationship with. This sounds very sappy, so you will have to believe me when I say it's not my normal look. Along with that, however, come really deep romantic feelings on both sides. He was married when we first became friends, and although we acknowledged the feelings, we never crossed any lines. I encouraged him to do what he could to save his marriage, and we kept a pretty safe distance.

Atwang with mountain music and actors stretching their vowels in long, loping cadences, Cold Mountain is the equivalent of comfort food: old-fashioned, earthy (lots of root vegetables), satisfying. Director Anthony Minghella's adaptation of the Charles Frazier best-seller is a romantic odyssey set against the turmoil of the Civil War, and it teems with movie stars and charismatic thespians, popping up in unexpected quarters. The costumes - the fancy hoop skirts, the rebel woolens, the hats (my word, the hats!

ISSUE | DEATH A love story Anyone who wishes to understand the meaning of true love should read Kerry McKean Kelly's moving remembrance of times spent with her husband, Steve, between his cancer diagnosis and untimely passing ("What cancer can't take away," April 17 ). The manner in which she recounts her experiences - at once life-altering and life-affirming - captures the essence of a committed relationship. Patrick J. Hagan, Ardmore

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 20-year-old college student. I have never dated anyone besides my current boyfriend, "Cody. " He's my first-ever boyfriend. I met him in high school, but we ran into each other in college and quickly began a relationship. We're now into our third year together. We have professed our love for each other. He never said "I love you" to any of his past girlfriends, and I'm happy he said it to me. My concern is that we talk like we'll be together forever. I think I'd be happy, but should I worry that I'll never know if there may be other guys I feel a stronger connection to?

Director Krista Apple undertook no easy task in her lesbian version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet now being presented by Curio Theatre Company. Unlike Joe Calarco's Shakespeare's R&J , which rewrote the plot to introduce budding homosexual affections between students at an all-boys school, Apple changed little. Romeo is a woman, Juliet falls in love with her, both suffer from the war between their families. The problems here don't lie in the performances. Rachel Gluck delivers a lovable Romeo, her throaty voice and aggressive mannerisms a nice foil to Isa St. Clair's lovely portrayal of innocence.

DEAR ABBY: I have an awful time meeting men. I'm not considered beautiful by any means, so that means meeting any good guys won't happen. I use Craigslist a lot to meet sexual partners. I am so tired of giving up my body for a few minutes of pleasure and then feeling empty on the inside. Please tell me what to do. - Where Are the Good Guys? DEAR WHERE: I'll try, but first let me tell you where the good guys aren't . They are not on Craigslist, trolling for sex partners.

A New York judge Monday threw out three sexual-abuse lawsuits against former Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash , whose characters included Elmo and Clifford . Three men had alleged that Clash, 52, "induced them to engage in sexual activity" when they were minors. But federal judge John Koeltl said the plaintiffs missed the time limits on such charges: six years after the cause of action, or three years after the claimant turns 21. Clash, whose work earned three daytime Emmys just last month, giving him a career total of 27 Emmys, left Sesame Street in November after 25 years to deal with the lawsuits.
