This is a great radio bit. Problem is that somebody decided this was a movie, and it is certainly not.

Rarely these days do you come across a comedy so wholly warm-hearted.

This self-deprecating comedy would make both Larry David and Louis C.K. proud,

Birbiglia humbly finds gold in his unassuming story.

However, there's something ultimately unsatisfying about the experience of listening to stand-up comedian Mike Birbiglia tell the true story of his inability to marry his longtime girlfriend (played by the far-too-hot-to-be-with-him Lauren Ambrose).

The mix of broad laughs and excruciating truths makes for a highly watchable and intuitive experience.

A riotous breakthrough for Mike Birbiglia, whose humanist comedy says a lot about modern relationships that many of us won't be prepared to admit.

Walking a fine line between darkly compassionate comedy, biting reality, striking low-budget fantasy and harsh psychological honesty, this modest but most disarming offering from funnyman Birbiglia is one of those pics that unexpectedly grows on you.

Though the sleep-walking episodes are funny, it's the way Mike Birbiglia captures the pains of performing comedy to tiny rooms that really fly.

As entertaining as the movie can be, it's the smaller, more poignant material in between the big laughs that makes the final product so charming.

It takes a while to find its feet but Sleepwalk With Me develops into an interesting film about an interesting person.

...just like the most memorable stand-up routines, there's a twinge of tragedy and pathos in the mix that make the laughs linger and the story stick.

Really, this film lives or dies on the charm of its protagonist. Luckily, Birbiglia is very charming indeed.

I guess there are only so many times you can tell a story - even a great story - before even you are tired of hearing it.

Sleepwalk With Me is implausibly appealing. The idea of someone not liking this picture is implausible. It would be without plause.

The idea of the man-boy who can't commit is rather '90s, and neither the film's narrative nor style brings it forward two decades, to where it should be.

Moments of comedy and drama are preserved, but even at 81 minutes the film seems a tad long
Louise Keller

Based on an off-Broadway play and novel, the humour is cumulative, emanating from the characters and situations and resulting in a bubbling feel-good snapshot of life from the view point of an aspiring comic with an oddball slant on things

Sleepwalk With Me is a disposably sweet 'Annie Hall' rehash that achieves its minor ambitions with unremarkable efficiency.

A film that expertly paddles through the complicated subconscious and repressed feelings of a faltering comedian
