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

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.

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.

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.
