Synopsis 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.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A] dream for fans of offbeat, well-written, subtly acted projects....The semi-autobiographical tale is appealingly low-key and alternately funny and melancholy, informed by Birbiglia's casual delivery.SLEEPWALK WITH ME's transition from stage to screen primarily works because Birbiglia continues to carry the weight. The movie leans heavily on the comic's quirky, self-deprecating style that made the original work so well.3.5 stars out of 4 -- As first films go, SLEEPWALK WITH ME is surprisingly successful.This small, likable movie, which Mr. Birbiglia adapted from his 2008 one-man show with the producer Ira Glass, Joe Birbiglia (his brother) and Seth Barrish, is several things loosely wound together by Matt’s breezy narration directly to the camera.Feats of raconteur storytelling are always tricky to translate into something effective and fluid enough to be movieworthy. But SLEEPWALK WITH ME sticks the landing. -- Grade: A-Successful comic-turned-playwright Mike Birbiglia brings his popular one-man show to the big screen with this autobiographical comedy-drama about a frustrated stand-up comedian locked in a volatile relationship. Meanwhile, his growing sleepwalking problem becomes much too frequent to ignore.
