Though the title could use some trimming too, the movie pulls off that delicate balancing act between creating a sympathetic big guy with a huge eating disorder, while keeping the fat jokes tastefully funny.

The more James groans to an unsympathetic ear, "Why would they remake Marty--it's timeless?" we wonder why Garlin didn't take his own advice

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 wrote, directed, and stars in this endearing schlub-in-Chicago movie, which is based on his solo stage show of the same title.

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.

The cameos and local details, and even some of the gags, keep it perky.

..about as small as movies get, yet often, unexpectedly, as moving.

It may not exactly conform to what many people might expect to see from a current-day romantic comedy, it is one of the more satisfying examples of the genre to come along in recent months.

This is a film that can't quite decide if it wants to be a show-business spoof, a romantic comedy or an embarrassment comedy along the lines of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The movie has a strange tone... but there's a lot to admire here.

I've no clue how the world will take to I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With. For Chicago, it's a scrumptious, four-star banquet.

Garlin's clearly inspired by his own experiences living as someone who's fat and funny, but being honest isn't the same thing as being perceptive.

Somehow Garlin maintains a buoyant, humanistic tone throughout the parade of lonely humiliations. It's an endearing little movie with a great big heart.

You might wish this speed-limit-safe exercise in Woody Allen-esque urban romantic neuroses had taken jazzier comic risks.

Jeff Garlin, the former Second City actor who plays Larry David's manager on Curb Your Enthusiasm, has spun his solo show into a movie that's, alas, pretty light on laughs.
