Critics Consensus

In Sleeper, Woody Allen's madcap futurist comedy, practically each joke and one-liner hits it target.

Movie Info

After health-store owner Miles Monroe (Woody Allen) dies during a routine surgery, his family has him cryogenically frozen. He awakens 200 years later, revived by a group of underground radicals who oppose the oppressive regime in power. Once the police arrive to arrest the group, Miles flees, disguised as a robot. He meets Luna Schlosser (Diane Keaton), and they gradually fall in love. When Miles is later captured by the authorities, Luna seeks out the rebels to help rescue him.

    I found it a lot less funny than most of the other Woody Allen movies I've seen.

    Even in the future Woody Allen is an awkward klutz. in sleeper we witness Woody Allen compete in a beauty pageant. be a robot, and Hold a nose hostage. It was typical Woody. My only complaint is it felt to move to fast not really letting you soak in what's going on.

    "Sleeper" is an earlier Woody Allen comedy, which means it has plenty of one-liner filled dialogue and Chaplin-esque slapstick. While it is a witty take on the future, the comedy is pretty antiquated. As a result, modern audiences will likely find it hard to love, but some (like myself) may find it easy to appreciate.

    Woody Allen's comedies are always so incredibly watchable and entertaining. For its first hour or so, "Sleeper" is one of the funniest films I've seen. It's cleverly written and acted, and even though some of the jokes are a bit dated, they usually work. The screenplay is riddled with instances of humorous dialogue, but I found a majority of my laughter directed at the running gags and Allen's use of physical comedy. The film's final half hour doesn't work quite as well, and it features some skits that are both overlong and unfunny, but Allen and Keaton are both so radiant and charming in their roles that it's near impossible not to find them amusing.
