Very enjoyable

I'm suprised by the negative reviews but to each their own I guess. I thought it was a sweet movie I saw it at ifc center in a very small theatre and it was nice ,other people seem to enjoy it too. It's not perfect ,I didn't love the scene when Charlie and Francesca first meet ,it was a bit ott but overall it was enjoyable. To people in real life with narcolepsy/ cataplexy I can't imagine living with this illness and I don't think they made your illness a joke. I really felt for his character's situation it's not all laughs.

FYI: to earlier comments that cataplexy doesn't cause narcolepsy,and that its a symptom. That was a mistake in the description that was corrected. In the movie they state that he has narcolepsy with cataplexy so it makes it clear that it is a symptom that not everyone with narcolepsy has and that it's not necessarily the same for everyone with the illness.

Comedy with tears

Recent good comedy in 2019. Bring joys with great story line. Loving someone to Charlie is a Mount Fuji but he conquered. Really not just comedy but tears for some moment. Beautiful !

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.
