Box Office - 09/01/2007
"[A] profoundly personal rom com....[With] an emotionally honest performance from writer/director/producer/star Garlin..."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/14/2007
"[A] wry movie....Garlin's the first director to really exploit the menace behind Silverman's funny-hot-chick persona..." -- Grade: B
Los Angeles Times - 09/14/2007
"There's an unforced charm...to Garlin's view that romantic chemistry may be the truest test of one's improv skills..."

Product Description:

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM star Jeff Garlin brings a pet project to the screen (Garlin is credited as director, star, screenwriter, and producer) with the fluffy romantic comedy I WANT SOMEONE TO EAT CHEESE WITH. The film is based on the exploits of an overweight, aging actor named James Aaron (Garlin). James lives at home with his mom, has been overly picky about which roles he'll play (and therefore never gets any work beyond an awful job hosting a prank-related TV show), and has no luck with women. He also has a strange obsession with Ernest Borgnine's character in the 1955 Delbert Mann feature MARTY. But an aborted attempt at attending Overeaters Anonymous meetings leads the rotund actor to one of his favorite places, the ice cream parlor, where he enjoys a surprising flirtation with the cute-but-somewhat-unhinged Beth (Sarah Silverman).

Garlin's brief, 80-minute long feature is strung along by a loose plot that is really just a CURB-style basis for the talented comic to deliver a series of jokes with his comedian friends. Supporting roles come from luminaries such as Amy Sedaris, Dan Castellaneta, Bonnie Hunt, and Gina Gershon among others, and while the humor sometimes delves into deliciously crude wisecracks, a genuine feeling of empathy for James simmers to the surface as the film reaches its final act.
