A smart, neurotic slice-of-life comedy about a stand-up comic with confidence issues, commitment issues, and career issues.

"Sleepwalk with Me" puts a laudably offbeat new spin on the familiar story of the slacker guy with the commitment problem.

There isn't a single thing this movie attempts that every episode of Louie doesn't do better.

"Sleepwalk With Me" is a good movie, but it could have been a great one if it cared as much about the woman as it does the man.

It's a film of great humor and insight, but most importantly, it retains Birbiglia's personality, keeping the master of ceremonies and his whirlwind life of heartache and nocturnal activity beautifully intact.

It's like nothing I've ever seen, sort of Funny People crossed with Annie Hall by way of Lost Highway.

Birbiglia has been a unique voice on the standup comedy circuit for several years now. "Sleepwalk with Me" indicates he could make an even bigger impact at the movies.

Birbiglia has an affable screen presence, and there's an appealing authenticity to the characters and their relationships.

The jokes are never quite funny enough, and the situation -- aside from the sleepwalking gimmick -- doesn't feel quite fresh enough.

Birbiglia's easygoing style makes even his oft-told tales affecting on the big screen.

Like any good stand-up comic, Birbiglia works best when playing off an audience - or, in this case, the camera.

Dizzying navel-gazer about a desperately unfunny comedian.
Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

A movie that will likely have greater resonance for his fans -- and for fans of NPR's This American Life -- than more casual moviegoers.

I liked Sleepwalk With Me-just not nearly as much as I would've liked to have liked it.
Monica Castillo

As an off-beat movie that depends on his conversational delivery, Sleepwalk with Me manages to avoid many of the standard romantic comedy pratfalls.
