Critic Reviews for Sleep with Me

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

Worth it, if only for Quentin Tarantino's hilarious cameo

February 6, 2006

A lesser entry in the '90s genre of talky, Tarantino-and-Linklater-inspired Gen-X babblefests

September 10, 2005

Notable only for its Quentin Tarantino Top Gun monologue.

April 10, 2003
San Francisco Examiner

Sometimes funny, sometimes painful, but most often solipsistic.

Audience Reviews for Sleep with Me


WHY is Tarantino at the party? Best part of the film, but has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Other than that, none of the characters are really anyone I'd wanna root for. A couple funny moments. I'm not high.

Tarantino is the only reason to see this movie. It was all "middle" and no end.

Very entertaining, and quite funny, treatment of a not so funny situation. Joseph (Eric Stoltz), Frank (Craig Sheffer), and Sarah (Meg Tilly) are three friends whose relationship gets complicated when Joseph and Sarah marry and Frank confesses his love for Sarah. The main story is a tragedy of the first order. What makes it funny are all the side stories going on with the supporting cast. And a talented cast it is. Pain and confusion drive the main story, while confusion and deep philosophical conversations (not) drive the underplot. Poker games with the boys, various house parties, dating carousels, and couples who clearly like each other populate the background upon which these two friends seek to sort out their feelings and how the friendship is to survive with Sarah now as the thing that stands between them. Bittersweet romantic comedy. Of special note, June Lockhart (Timmy's mom on Lassie before she was Lost in Space, BTW) as the mother-in-law from the planet Tedium and Quentin Tarantino as Sid are brilliant. Parker Posey and Joey Lauren Adams do a hilarious turn as wanna be country singers that is not to ne missed.
