A film that expertly paddles through the complicated subconscious and repressed feelings of a faltering comedian

So do hang on and tough it out through the early awkwardness: once the truth starts hitting the fan/fans...it's a production that no one will sleep through.

From start to finish, his character, called Matt Pandamiglio, is all by his lonesome -- reaching out of the fog. He's a funny fog person.

The film acts as both a diary of a sidewinding comic stylist finding his style, almost by accident, and a reminder to all post-collegiate boyfriends and girlfriends that "OK" probably isn't good enough for either party.

Even though the story does have its serious elements, it is very funny.

Full of shaggy self-deprecation and wistful romantic realization, Sleepwalk with Me is an amiable tale of beta-male discovery.

It's slight.

Even if comedian Mike Birbiglia doesn't have more stories worth telling on film, he's done one movie that sneaks up on an audience and earns its attention.

It isn't the typical romcom with a happy ending and rosy outlook all around, but it spins its wheels in familiar territory too often and takes a lazy approach to its central relationship, even as its sleepwalking scenes hit all the right notes.

Birbiglia is boyish, a calm talker, and just meek enough to keep his punch lines surprising but not so meek that he's unlikable. (If anything, Birbiglia is extremely likable.)

Modestly amusing autobiographically inspired work of fiction.

It's not until the movie's second half that it really picks up momentum and builds drama. But by the time Sleepwalk with Me crosses the finish line, it's difficult not to genuinely like everyone involved.

... pleasant entertainment with overtones of personal confession ...

There is something worthwhile about a comic who has the guts to admit not everything that arises from his lips is worthy of Mark Twain.

Ultimately, the film becomes an admirable, but flawed piece of work. The comedy bits work well, but the overall story leaves something to be desired.

An amusing but innocuous movie that wants to be liked, loved, perhaps even hugged (Birbiglia isn't shy about exposing his love handles).

The movie is hilariously funny and witty. Although messy at times, Matt's relationship with Abby is sweet and endearing. The sleepwalking incidents are the weakest links in the narrative, because it is difficult to show on screen the vividness of...

This is unquestionably the funniest movie you'll ever see about a doomed relationship coupled with a life-threatening sleep-disorder.

yet another film about an underachieving (but bright and talented) character trying to make it in world of straights who don't immediately recognize how wonderful he is.

It's not the most novel character arc in the world, but sometimes a story doesn't need to break new ground. Sometimes it's enough for it to feel comfortable, maybe even familiar, and make you smile.
