Too Much Sleep (2001)
Movie InfoWriter-director David Maquiling made his feature film debut and co-produced this independent latter-day American screwball comedy. Jack Crawford (Marc Palmieri) is a man in his 20s who is still living at home in the suburbs with his domineering mother. He works as a security guard at night and battles boredom by day. While commuting to his job on a bus one day, he meets an attractive young woman named Kate (Nicol Zanzarella). She is mesmerizing to him and they talk and ride awhile. After she gets off the bus, he discovers that his gun is missing. He sets off on a search for the missing weapon and finds out that Kate isn't what she seemed to be. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Too Much Sleep
As a story, Too Much Sleep could inspire a little snooze of its own. But in images - in shots of Jack walking the suburban wasteland, of lawn sprinklers and discarded backyard toys -- it is nearly saved.
For all his baggy-pants vulgarity, Eddie gives Jack the energy he needs to find his own way. And Jack finding Jack is the nut of the tale.
A modest, non-pushy little movie, one that resists hitting you over the head to get laughs.
Though far less polished (and pricey) than the average studio movie, an independent film such as Too Much Sleep easily makes up in pith and becoming modesty what it lacks in flash.
An esoteric, suburban valentine driven by deadpan humor and a certain dream logic... Too Much Sleep subverts expectations more than any movie I've seen all year.
Too Much Sleep seems more like a home movie made by your brother-in-law and his frat brothers than a real film.
Full of perfectly realized touches of reality, ones that provoke both laugh-out-loud guffaws and ironic snickers.
As a first offering from writer/director David Maquiling, the movie is solid indie fare.
Too Much Sleep is loaded with the same quirkiness one expects from an independent comedy, although it's not as self-consciously strange as most.
More of an interesting curio than a full-fledged film.
