    I hated his character in Sleepwalk With Me so much that I cannot listen to Mike Birbiglia anymore. Which is sad because I really enjoyed his work. Maybe I am getting old, but even though I thought his dad was a jerk, I totally understood his point of view. (Less sympathetic about the “comedy is not a real job” and more agreeing with the “you are an annoying person who needs to get it together” point of view.)

    Yeah, I definitely agree that some of his actions make him less sympathetic, but I definitely can relate to that perspective of aspiring to do something but being stuck in place. Also, I think having a sleep disorder was a unique backbone to what might have otherwise been a fairly traditional story.

    Yeah, but at no point in the movie did I have any sympathy for him or his sleep disorder. I spent most of the time thinking, “Go to the doctor, dumbass.” I really wanted to like it, though. I should note that I loved the This American Life episode about his sleep issues. So, I was not expecting to dislike this movie as much as I did.
