Dream for an Insomniac is really a self-conscious modern sitcom that with its San Francisco setting suggests a pale shadow of Armistead Maupin's Tales From the City.

It's talky, clumsy and a bit trivial, but the talk is rarely dull, and there's an integrity about its clumsiness: It's harder to be smooth when you have things you really want to say.

A slight, sleekly polished debut feature propelled by a kinder, gentler Swingers vibe.

Aniston is the breeze in this movie.

A romantic comedy about bright, funny, confused young people in San Francisco, it fails to be bright or funny itself, only confused.

All of the playful dialogue -- and this movie is joyfully full of talk -- is handled well in DeBartolo's savvy script and given life by actors who seem to truly embody the idealism of the characters.

If you're looking for a safe romantic comedy featuring 20-somethings, then you might enjoy Dream for an Insomniac. If you like more challenging films, you won't regret skipping it.

Audience Reviews for Dream for an Insomniac

Contrived poop. If these people really exist I hope we never meet. Let's be weird and free-spirited for the sake of being weird and free-spirited. Insert fart noise here...
