Critic Reviews for Sleepwalk With Me
There is genuine humor with disability, and this particular film is an honest, earnest, and entertaining reflection of that truth.
This self-deprecating comedy would make both Larry David and Louis C.K. proud,
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).
From start to finish, his character, called Matt Pandamiglio, is all by his lonesome -- reaching out of the fog. He's a funny fog person.
The film acts as both a diary of a sidewinding comic stylist finding his style, almost by accident, and a reminder to all post-collegiate boyfriends and girlfriends that "OK" probably isn't good enough for either party.
Audience Reviews for Sleepwalk With Me
'Sleepwalk With Me'. Unexpectedly hilarious, sweet and honest. Some real moments of laugh-out-loud humour that's normally hard for me to come by.
I am a big Mike Birbiglia fan, so I may be a bit biased here..but...I thought that this movie was VERY charming.
This adorable, quarky film is very fitting for Birbiglia. Fans know of him as a successful comedian, but we have to watch his younger self struggle to find the standup routine we already have in our heads. Meanwhile, the current, successful self weaves his way through the movie, narrating this tale of yore with pieces of his stand-up in an abrupt, almost rushed way that ends up creating a jarring, uncanny valley-like effect where lines that are hilarious in their original form are suddenly not. However, the visual reenactments of the sleepwalk episodes described in his routine were absurd and funny, and the cameos (even some Mitch Hedberg material) were a nice, warming touch.
