This is a movie for anyone who's ever been unsure, and surely that's everyone.
Tom Long, Detroit News  full review
 
A smart, neurotic slice-of-life comedy about a stand-up comic with confidence issues, commitment issues, and career issues.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer  full review
 
Birbiglia's pleasingly nasal delivery and agreeable presence holds it together.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune  full review
 
I liked Sleepwalk With Me-just not nearly as much as I would've liked to have liked it.
Christopher Orr, The Atlantic  full review
 
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  full review
 
"Sleepwalk With Me's" transition from stage to screen primarily works because Birbiglia continues to carry the weight.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
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  full review
 
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  full review
 
The semi-autobiographical tale is appealingly low-key and alternately funny and melancholy, informed by Birbiglia's casual delivery.
Claudia Puig, USA Today  full review
 
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  full review
 
"Sleepwalk With Me" traps Birbiglia inside his own head. He desperately needs a movie or cable series that wakes him up and sets his material loose on the outside world.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
 
"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  full review
 
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  full review
 
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  full review
 
Sleepwalk is oddly soothing, like a cup of camomile tea before bedtime.
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine  full review
 
A thoughtful adaptation of Birbiglia's hit one-man, off-Broadway show.
Sara Stewart, New York Post  full review
