William Maher's melodrama is much too grim and bleak for even the most cynical viewer to enjoy...
August 8, 2009
Each bend in the road positively screeches with the urgency of impending catharsis, but the film never earns its resolution.
December 8, 2008
The movie seems unusually honest in portraying the no-option existence of the working poor, but the story slips into melodrama in the last reel.
July 4, 2008
Taking its cue from the tabloids, this is yet another addition to that tacky category of scandal sheet cinema. Why do celebrities with charmed Hollywood lives imagine everyday people as a bunch of sleazy or dimwitted degenerates, misfits and assassins.
June 18, 2008
If you enjoyed MONSTER'S BALL (it's not as good as that one however), you might find yourself pulled in by this moving drama.

June 4, 2008
The let's-take-a-road-trip method of character healing has been done to death, but unlike Little Miss Sunshine, James & Tara are made up of more than just cute quirks.
| Original Score: B
May 15, 2008
Theron sneaks out the door roughly 1/2 an hour into the picture. What is the movie to do without her energy?
April 11, 2008
Sleepwalking seems especially cruel to dwell on the bleak and cold at this time of year, when icy drizzle saturates the bones.

March 25, 2008
...a lifeless movie about uninteresting people.

March 25, 2008
Stylistically strange, sluggish and ultimately unsatisfying domestic drama.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 24, 2008
It's a film of mood -- and the mood is perfectly captured.
March 21, 2008
It's all too aptly named.

Sleepwalking provides character arcs for its two protagonists but neither is as interesting or memorable as the performances warrant.

March 21, 2008
A girl abandoned by her mother, a father unable to offer anything but hatred to his own children -- these are narrative elements of potentially great force, but they play out here without much shape, definition or power.

March 20, 2008
The movie is so overly familiar, and its take on the dysfunctional family dynamics is so unoriginal, that the whole thing might as well have been titled Generic Bleak Sundance Film Festival Drama No. 500.

March 19, 2008
The inherently uneventful nature of Stanford's script becomes more and more problematic as the film progresses...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 17, 2008
It's apparent some meaningful visuals are being approached here, but it seems like the film keeps missing its mark.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 15, 2008
Not quite enough new here to make this film a hit, but enough of Theron, Hopper and Harrelson to make the film worth watching.
| Original Score: 6/10
March 15, 2008
Zac Stanford's screenplay works only as a theorem proving Murphy's Law.
Full Review | Original Score: D
March 14, 2008
Portentous and dull, the film features one of the worst over-the-top performances by Dennis Hopper, who plays an abusive father. His role upends what could have been a mildly interesting family drama.
