Review There are movies that amble because the slow pace is necessary to provide insight into the characters and allow an overriding sense of atmosphere to envelop the viewer. Then there are movies whose slowness threatens to turn into stagnation and help the viewer into the arms of Morpheus. The appropriately named Sleepwalking falls into the latter category. With its generic lifeless setting (how many times have we seen this town before?) and low wattage narrative, the movie is a bit of a chore to sit through, and the predictable Pollyanna ending doesn't make things more palatable...In a way, I was reminded of the Zooey Deschanel/Will Ferrell movie, Winter Passing, which was afflicted with the same kind of somnambulant pace and downbeat tone. That movie, however, made the right choice in concentrating on Deschanel's character. Keeping her in the center of the story allowed it to stay afloat. James proves to be less remarkable and some viewers will find themselves studying the set design because it's more stimulating. Sleepwalking fuses elements of the Buddy Movie, the Road Trip, and the Coming of Age story into a package that more often highlights the worst of the genre pictures than the best they can offer.
