A riotous breakthrough for Mike Birbiglia, whose humanist comedy says a lot about modern relationships that many of us won't be prepared to admit.

Walking a fine line between darkly compassionate comedy, biting reality, striking low-budget fantasy and harsh psychological honesty, this modest but most disarming offering from funnyman Birbiglia is one of those pics that unexpectedly grows on you.

Though the sleep-walking episodes are funny, it's the way Mike Birbiglia captures the pains of performing comedy to tiny rooms that really fly.

As entertaining as the movie can be, it's the smaller, more poignant material in between the big laughs that makes the final product so charming.

...just like the most memorable stand-up routines, there's a twinge of tragedy and pathos in the mix that make the laughs linger and the story stick.

Really, this film lives or dies on the charm of its protagonist. Luckily, Birbiglia is very charming indeed.

Sleepwalk With Me is implausibly appealing. The idea of someone not liking this picture is implausible. It would be without plause.

Based on an off-Broadway play and novel, the humour is cumulative, emanating from the characters and situations and resulting in a bubbling feel-good snapshot of life from the view point of an aspiring comic with an oddball slant on things

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.
