Lovely film

This movie is a joy! I cried. I laughed out loud. It is wonderful and it handles the guy's condition respectfully. It is sensitive, romantic and very funny. Loved it!

Delightful comedy

Sweet and hilarious romantic comedy about a man trying to avoid love by making a pact with his brother. Brisk pacing. Great performances all around. Martin Freeman is simply charming and Melissa Rauch steals the show. Audience was laughing throughout.

Learn The Facts

When did it become acceptable to laugh at a chronic illness that for some can be disabling? What makes Narcolepsy different from Lupus, Alzheimers, Cancer or Epilepsy? Aside from the blatantly incorrect synopsis (cataplexy is a SYMPTOM of Narcolepsy-Narcolepsy is the disease), what frustrates me about this film is that it is based on one extreme spectrum of the disorder and I would even say an anomaly at that. For the majority of people with Narcolepsy, the primary concern is excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). Managing this symptom is often not as simple as taking a drug and returning to "normal" in terms of energy. A cost-benefit balance is needed between medications and side effects not to mention the cost and availability of the drugs. Additionally, there are only two types of narcolepsy distinguished by the presence or absence of cataplexy. The more prominent type of narcolepsy is in fact with cataplexy. Cataplexy isn't all or nothing but rather a spectrum and can be caused by extreme or in some cases moderate emotions (most commonly laughter/humor). On one extreme, you have complete loss of muscle tone, where someone might fall to the ground while remaining conscious and breathing. On the other extreme, someone's cataplexy might go unnoticed by the general public and could display as having a slight drooping of their head while laughing or their jaw may slack for a second. I agree with ephvv, misinformation hurts and there are already too many misconceptions about narcolepsy thanks to inaccurate or incomplete portrayals of narcolepsy like this film.
