Sleep with Me is an episodic film about a group of self-obsessed young people in six parts each written by a different screenwriter. Despite offering up decent performances from all the cool kids of mid-90s – including the likes of Eric Stoltz and a fresh-faced and unbelievably pretty Meg Tilly it fails to ignite. Oddly but amusingly Quentin Tarantino’s character turns up about midway through and presents us with a bizarre monologue of the gay subtext of Top Gun. It’s entertaining but ultimately the film fails to fully gel which is a shame because there are some good moments as Tilly and Stoltz’s characters play out a love triangle with the cocky character that Craig Sheffer plays. The chemistry is good between the three but the script does lag at times. Sleep with Me is an okay movie for those that like their films from the eighties.
Running Time: 89 minutes
