"I ordered the movie as a gift and when I received it, when you moved the DVD case, you'd hear the DVD inside clang around. I called Amazon and returned it for another one, but the same thing happened. I think it may just be something with the manufacturer and its way of packaging.
Also, while the movie is funny (as all of Jim's stuff is), the movie quality is very poor. It almost looks like someone just made it at home in their basement and printout out liner for the dvd case."
Funny, sweet, and a perfect showcase for Jim Gaffigan!

"Anyone who liked Jim Gaffigan on David Letterman last night should check out this film. Instead of getting three minutes on national TV, Gaffigan gets 85 minutes in this film, and he never wears out his welcome. The supporting cast around Gaffigan is great, too, especially T.J. Jagodowski as his "normal" friend. The film is surprisingly well-written and well-acted, given what appears to be a shoe string budget. I found the director's commentary interesting, too. As an aspiring filmmaker myself, I found it sort of inspirational to hear everything the directors went through to make this film; their tales are a vivid reminder that these days pretty much anyone with enough moxie can go out and make a feature-length film. It's a pity film like No Sleep remain unknown while the studios keep pumping out drivel."
