Critic Reviews for I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With
You have to like James and his outlook on life. It may not be glamorous, but it's one that eventually allows James a higher lever of satisfaction.
It's a nice little movie.
Cheese is such a small, endearing and well-observed piece -- sort of Curb Your Enthusiasm without the excruciating bits.
Garlin's directing has little pacing, and many of the borderline gags could have been salvaged with some sharper editing. And there's a shocking amount of jokes and situations that just don't work.
It celebrates its modesty, it becomes our friend, we're surprisingly touched by it even though it doesn't rock us. If there is such a thing as a must-see three-star movie, here it is.
Audience Reviews for I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" is one of my favorite comedies. I love everything about it, and one night I was looking for something to watch and I came across this. It's written/directed by and stars Jeff Garlin. Garlin plays Larry David's manager on "Curb", so I figured this had to be good and figured I'd give it a shot. The movie feels like an episode of "Curb" by the way it looks, the music, and the dialogue, but it lacks the wit and charm. It's about a struggling actor who lives with his mother. He's depressed, cheats on his diet, and wants to find someone to be with. It's slow and not nearly as funny as I hoped for. It's one of those movies that doesn't know if it wants to be sad or funny, and doesn't find a good enough balance between the 2. If your a fan of Garlin's then it is worth a watch, because he is good. But if your hoping for something that measures up to "Curb", then just skip it because you will be disappointed.
I think this was really badly marketed. From the cover it looks like a romantic comedy, only of course you expect it to have an edge as it stars Sarah Silverman, and just the title alone, you know you can expect something a little bit different.
However, it is not really that type of movie at all. It is a slight, quiet little film about an overweight man who wants to find love. Sarah Silverman is barely in it, (which is a blessing, at least from my point of view - I really don't find her endearing at all), and when she is, she turns out to be not all that nice. It is brief at 80 minutes, and thought it has it's moments, including a cameo by Amy Sedaris, it falls pretty flat and is ultimately unsatisfying on any level.
My husband compared this to a Woody Allen movie, and I think he is right. If they marketed it more in that area, I think it would have been a lot less disappointing.
Sarah Silvermann is my Idol.
