    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    It all adds up to a fine, funny exercise in disheveled self-deprecation: a self-portrait of a guy who can't control a major portion of his life. Which, when you get right down to it, could describe almost any of us. show more

    A dream for fans of offbeat, well-written, subtly acted projects. show more

    John Anderson Wall Street Journal

    Sleepwalk With Me makes the subject palatable, funny and maybe even touching. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Birbiglia is a great storyteller, but not a natural actor. Matt should really be played by someone with more skill - and by someone in his 20s, rather than a 33-year-old who pretends to be in his 20s by acting as clueless as possible. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Much of the best comedy derives from personal pain, and comic turned filmmaker Mike Birbiglia deftly transposes his stand-up routine to the big screen. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    I like this movie. More important, I like Mike Birbiglia in it. Whether he has a future in stand-up I cannot say, but he has a future as a monologist and actor. show more

    Laugh-out-loud funny and somewhat melancholic. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    With a refreshing lack of fake glamour, the film captures what it's like to be an initially unpromising comedian on the road. show more

    It's a tribute to Birbiglia's storytelling chops that the most engaging part of the film is when he's talking directly to the camera. The fleshed-out story, with its first-rate cast, almost feels like gilding the lily. show more

    Ann Hornaday Washington Post

    With warmth, unsparing self-awareness and that ineffable Everyman appeal sometimes called "relatability," Birbiglia proves to be as engaging a presence on the screen as he has been all these years onstage and over the radio waves. show more

    Ordinarily I will remain committed to watching a movie through until the end, but with this I could not make it past the eleven minute mark. The overall movie may have been great, but I will never know due to the nails-on-a-chalkboard beginning.

    I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS MOVIE GOT A 87% REVIEW AND CRITICS GAVE IT A 71%. THIS MOVIE WAS AWFUL. MY HUSBAND SAID THAT IF YOU WENT TO SLEEP, YOU HAD A NIGHTMARE. I SAID THAT WHOEVER WROTE THESE REVIEWS WERE SMOKING SOMETHING FUNNY. ITS NOT WORTH A DVD NO LESS NOMINATED FOR AN AWARD.
