Movie Info

James (Jeff Garlin), a struggling actor, lives with his mother (Mina Kolb) and binges on junk food. Though usually unlucky in love, he begins a tentative relationship with a music-loving schoolteacher (Bonnie Hunt), but what really gives him a new sense of purpose is the revelation that his favorite film, "Marty," is being remade.

    "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.

    A modern, homage to Marty. Shot in Chicago. It's endearing and quirky. The kind of film that feels like an old t-shirt: comfy, but you would leave the house wearing it

    Sarah Silvermann is my Idol.

    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.
