i really enjoyed sleepwalk with me. it's funny yet painful at the same time...

Great Movie

If you like Mike Birbiglia's stand up you will most likely enjoy Sleepwalk with Me is delightful. This movie chronicles Birbiglia’s attempts to be a successful stand up comedian and the unraveling of his relationship with his girlfriend. If you have listened to his stand up, there are a large number of his jokes in the movie along with some new ones. This may bother someone who does not like to hear the same jokes repeated, but I thought it provided a nice atmosphere to the movie because it gives it an air of familiarity.

The interview with Birbiglia and Ira Glass included in the special features was interesting to watch because they talked about how, while it was based on his life, some things needed to be changed in order to make the story work as a movie. For example, in the movie his jumping out of the window while sleepwalking created the necessity for him to make a major decision whereas in real life, he just jumped out of the window one night and the incident did not correspond to any major life event. It brought up an interesting idea that our lives are rarely compatible to movie plots.
