Editorial Reviews

Winner of a 2012 Audience Award at Sundance, comedian Mike Birbiglia directed and stars in this sincere and hilarious film, based on his off-Broadway show and bestselling book. It's also the first movie from Ira Glass and co-produced by "This American Life." The story: when an aspiring stand-up fails to express his true feelings about his girlfriend and his stalled career, his anxiety comes out in increasingly funny and dangerous sleepwalking incidents. SLEEPWALK WITH ME features Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Carol Kane (Taxi), James Rebhorn (Meet the Parents), Cristin Milioti (star of Broadway's "Once"), plus comedians Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Jessi Klein, Henry Phillips and David Wain.

I've seen Mike Birbiglia in a few stand up broadcasts, but really knew nothing about him, except that I liked his laconic, stutter-step approach to delivering his material. He seemed like a funny guy who also happened to be sorta nice too. I knew nothing about his book, Ira Glass appearances or one-man off-Broadway show. That's probably a good thing, because I was able to enjoy SLEEPWALK WITH ME pretty much on its own terms.

Apparently this movie is quite autobiographical, even though Mike has changed his character's name to Matt. But Mike/Matt frequently talks directly to the camera, and we're assured the story is it's almost impossible not to assume that we're basically seeing a (perhaps exaggerated) take on Birbiglia's life. But it doesn't really matter either...the story is compelling and says some interesting things about relationships and about how a stand-up comic builds their career literally from the ground up.

Matt is in an 8-year relationship with Abby (Lauren Ambrose, who is wonderful). Abby is a great girl, and everyone (both viewer and the characters on screen) have to wonder why Matt is having a hard time settling down and committing to a marriage with her. But as Matt says, he's unhappy that everyone says the best thing about him is his girlfriend. It's true. He's a bartender who wants to do stand-up. Or at least, he thinks he does...he gets almost no opportunities to try. His life and his relationship is on hold. Abby is faithful and patient, but also growing frustrated. Surely she is wondering what more she can give of herself to this man who trembles at the thought of marrying her.

One day, with Abby's help, Matt actually gets an agent. And the agent begins to give Matt tiny gigs.

Format: DVD
"Sleepwalk With Me" (2012 US release; 90 min.) brings the story of Matt (played by Mike Birbiglia) as he struggles with a sleep disorder and tries to salvage his long-time relationship with Abby (played by Lauren Ambrose). Abby wants to get married, badly. Matt, not so much. Abby is looking for any sign from Matt that he will propose, which he eventually does, after an emotional side trip that makes him feel guilty and ashamed. Parallel to all of this, we see Matt getting his start on the stand-up comedy circuit, and barely hnaging on. Then, one day, he makes a funny quip about his failing relationship with Abby, and wouldn't you know, the audience eats it up! I don't want to give more away, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first and foremost, even though he plays a character called "Matt", this story is based on Mike Birbiglia's own life experiences (in fact, before this became a movie, this was an unexpected off-Broadway hit play). Birbiglia not only stars but also co-wrote and co-directed the movie. Second, the movie makes the most of the shoestring budget on which this obviously was made, and I was pleasantly surprised how well it all flowed. Last but not least, the overall tione of the movie is very much bitter-sweet (to me at least). When I saw this in the theatre a few days ago (at the Landmark E Street Cinema in Washington, DC), there were a number of people who were laughing out loud in many parts of the movie. I never felt quite that way. Yes, there are funny moments in it, but when all is said and done, this movie documents a failing relationship and a serious disorder, so how truly laugh-out-loud funny is that?

It’s not often that I get to see a comedy movie that not only makes me laugh, but really connects with me on another level. I think it was comedian Duncan Trussell who first mentioned this movie on a podcast a while back, and I always meant to watch it, but never did until today. This is one of those films that I can recommend to anyone because it feels so real in a lot of ways, and is sure to be relatable to most people in at least one way. Do yourself a favor and go into this one without seeing any clips first, because while it is a comedy for the most part, it deals with the very real problem of telling the truth in a relationship, whether it’s for the best or not.

Matt Pandamiglio is a comedian…well, he wants to be a comedian. He doesn’t have very many jokes, and what he does have earns him so much silence that you could hear a pin drop. Very obvious things like pointing out Cookie Monster may have an eating disorder don’t exactly get a reaction these days. He works as a bartender at a place that has comedy some nights, and he admires the comedians who go up and get reactions from the crowd. Matt also has a bad sleepwalking problem that slowly escalates over time as his other problems in life grow more troublesome. To be honest, the best thing he has going for him is his girlfriend Abby. She’s got personality, has a good job, is gorgeous, and gets along with his family. The thing is, despite being with her for so many years, Matt hasn’t even thought about marriage, and when she brings it up, he gets nervous and doesn’t know how to put his feelings into words in a good way. Things start to look up when Matt starts to perform at small shows at colleges and other places out of town, and at the same time, this makes the relationship more unsteady.
