Movie Info

When not working as a night shift guard in a typical American suburb, mother-dominated Jack Crawford spends time at home in his room. His ho-hum life abruptly changes one day when he meets a lovely woman named Kate while riding the bus. Jack finds Kate intoxicating and does not realize until after she is gone that his gun is missing. This leaves Jack unsure as to whether he has lost it or whether she took it from him. His comical search for the missing firearm leads him into the surprisingly dark side of his peaceful hometown.

The film moves from mere dreamlessness to its own weird magic.

As a story, Too Much Sleep could inspire a little snooze of its own. But in images - in shots of Jack walking the suburban wasteland, of lawn sprinklers and discarded backyard toys -- it is nearly saved.

For all his baggy-pants vulgarity, Eddie gives Jack the energy he needs to find his own way. And Jack finding Jack is the nut of the tale.

A modest, non-pushy little movie, one that resists hitting you over the head to get laughs.

Though far less polished (and pricey) than the average studio movie, an independent film such as Too Much Sleep easily makes up in pith and becoming modesty what it lacks in flash.

A wickedly smart indie film.
