This self-deprecating comedy would make both Larry David and Louis C.K. proud,
Chase Whale, Film.com, 2013-11-08
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.
David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2013-01-08
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.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2013-01-08
This is a movie for anyone who's ever been unsure, and surely that's everyone.
Tom Long, Detroit News, 2012-09-14
Notwithstanding its storytelling stumbles, "Sleepwalk With Me" points in a positive direction for this likable comedian's career.
Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2012-09-13
A smart, neurotic slice-of-life comedy about a stand-up comic with confidence issues, commitment issues, and career issues.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2012-09-13
Birbiglia's pleasingly nasal delivery and agreeable presence holds it together.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2012-09-13
I liked Sleepwalk With Me-just not nearly as much as I would've liked to have liked it.
Christopher Orr, The Atlantic, 2012-08-31
This sharp romantic comedy began as a one-man show, and you can tell: the hero's voice-over narration wraps around the entire movie, and the scenes are mainly verbal.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2012-08-31
"Sleepwalk With Me's" transition from stage to screen primarily works because Birbiglia continues to carry the weight.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2012-08-31
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.
Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, 2012-08-31
Birbiglia proves to be as engaging a presence on the screen as he has been all these years onstage and over the radio waves.
Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2012-08-31
The semi-autobiographical tale is appealingly low-key and alternately funny and melancholy, informed by Birbiglia's casual delivery.
Claudia Puig, USA Today, 2012-08-30
Is there reason to be concerned that so much popular culture is about young men not wanting to become adults? Probably. And yet "Sleepwalk With Me" makes the subject palatable, funny and maybe even touching.
John Anderson, Wall Street Journal, 2012-08-30
"Sleepwalk With Me" is the perfect movie for fans of "The Daily Show" who actually stick around for the second-half interview.
Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic, 2012-08-30
It is a likable, warm film that brings a welcome reassurance: Even if you fail spectacularly as a comedian or as a human being, it really can turn out OK in the end.
Charlie McCollum, San Jose Mercury News, 2012-08-30
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.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2012-08-30
Sleepwalk is oddly soothing, like a cup of camomile tea before bedtime.
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2012-08-24
A thoughtful adaptation of Birbiglia's hit one-man, off-Broadway show.
Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2012-08-24
