Sleepwalk With Me Reviews

This is a great radio bit. Problem is that somebody decided this was a movie, and it is certainly not.

However, there's something ultimately unsatisfying about the experience of listening to stand-up comedian Mike Birbiglia tell the true story of his inability to marry his longtime girlfriend (played by the far-too-hot-to-be-with-him Lauren Ambrose).

I guess there are only so many times you can tell a story - even a great story - before even you are tired of hearing it.

The idea of the man-boy who can't commit is rather '90s, and neither the film's narrative nor style brings it forward two decades, to where it should be.

Moments of comedy and drama are preserved, but even at 81 minutes the film seems a tad long

Sleepwalk With Me is a disposably sweet 'Annie Hall' rehash that achieves its minor ambitions with unremarkable efficiency.

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.

An amusing but innocuous movie that wants to be liked, loved, perhaps even hugged (Birbiglia isn't shy about exposing his love handles).
September 14, 2012
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.

There isn't a single thing this movie attempts that every episode of Louie doesn't do better.

The jokes are never quite funny enough, and the situation -- aside from the sleepwalking gimmick -- doesn't feel quite fresh enough.

Dizzying navel-gazer about a desperately unfunny comedian.

"Sleepwalk With Me" traps Birbiglia inside his own head. He desperately needs a movie or cable series that wakes him up and sets his material loose on the outside world.

It's far too similar to every other star-is-born sob story the entertainment industry churns out with ease.

Matt's learning curve is probably supposed to be entertaining, or endearing, or something, but mostly it just sends the movie lurching into inertia.

[Rides] a weird tonal line, maybe aiming to split the difference between comedy and terror but coming off as afraid to really go for it on either.
August 20, 2012
The crux of the story offers sharp practical wisdom in the modernist vein, regarding the comedian's confrontation with the danger and the challenge of self-revelation, but it's served up too smoothly and sweetly.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Sleepwalk With Me" is lightweight to a fault. Yeah it's strange that this marginal comedian has a kooky sleep disorder, but that doesn't mean it makes for a very entertaining comedy.
