An esoteric, suburban valentine driven by deadpan humor and a certain dream logic... Too Much Sleep subverts expectations more than any movie I've seen all year.

The film moves from mere dreamlessness to its own weird magic.
March 27, 2001

As a first offering from writer/director David Maquiling, the movie is solid indie fare.
March 23, 2001
Too Much Sleep is loaded with the same quirkiness one expects from an independent comedy, although it's not as self-consciously strange as most.

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.
March 23, 2001
A modest, non-pushy little movie, one that resists hitting you over the head to get laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
March 23, 2001
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 sleeper with promise.

Suburban familiarity and contempt notwithstanding, the movie's a gas.

March 22, 2001
Amiable, occasionally funny, and never especially involving.
March 22, 2001
For a modest film, however, Too Much Sleep is a modest surprise.

March 22, 2001
On the screen, Too Much Sleep is wonderfully and deceivingly unpretentious, with one good performance after another.
March 22, 2001
Too Much Sleep scores by keeping its tone light and its characters fresh and eccentrically innocent, even when they get a little vicious.
