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.

Full of perfectly realized touches of reality, ones that provoke both laugh-out-loud guffaws and ironic snickers.

As a first offering from writer/director David Maquiling, the movie is solid indie fare.

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.

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.

More of an interesting curio than a full-fledged film.

Rich and droll, and yet slight -- a film of modest virtues, content to be small, achieving what it intends.

There's something oddly fresh and naively chipper about writer/director David Maquiling's feature debut.

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

Amiable, occasionally funny, and never especially involving.

For a modest film, however, Too Much Sleep is a modest surprise.

Like one of its hero's daydreams, the film evaporates on contact and leaves a serene glow.

On the screen, Too Much Sleep is wonderfully and deceivingly unpretentious, with one good performance after another.

Too Much Sleep scores by keeping its tone light and its characters fresh and eccentrically innocent, even when they get a little vicious.
