Quotes

Duane: Do you ever think that we have too much time on our hands? With all the advances made in extending the human life span, that perhaps nature's cruelest irony is that we get progressively stupider and stupider with each passing generation. I mean, some day we'll live for 300 years but we won't be able to sit still for 5 seconds... just a thought.

Small film, yet interesting premise
16 May 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I viewed this film again now that it has just appeared on DVD. I had forgotten just what an interesting little film this is. SLEEP WITH ME is what independent film-making is (or should be) all about. Based on the universal idea of the love triangle, it reveals the tangle of relationships that can exist among a community of friends. It also reveals the struggles and contradictions of twenty-somethings seeking careers, love, respect, and friendships.

Stoltz, Tilly, and Sheffer are excellent, as well as the strong cast of supporting actors. Adrienne Shelly is hilarious (and right on) in a small role as a party guest.

Two scenes in particular are brilliant: Parker Posey and Joey Lauren Adams invade the traditional all-guy poker game, and the final scene, which combines comedy, slapstick, and serious conflict and self-reflection.

If there is one script weakness, it is that the catalyst for the affair between Sheffer and Tilly is never successfully explained.
