Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin is James, a frustrated underappreciated Chicago actor who lives with his mother. James wants three things in life: someone to love him, a great part and to lose some weight. Unfortunately, he is 0 for 3. When he bails on Overeaters Anonymous for a trip to the ice cream parlor, he meets Beth who quickly wins his heart, but will this cause James more problems than it solves? Or has he finally found someone to eat cheese with? A brilliant ensemble cast makes this story of romance quite the comedy!
A romantic comedy with a meandering, almost conversational feel, I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With is a movie about overweight actor James Aaron (Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin) who lives with his mother (Mina Kolb) and hasn't had a relationship with a woman in five years. Incredibly picky about the roles he plays, James hasn't landed many acting jobs recently either, although he is the host of a junk television show. Finding solace in conversations with his friend Luca (David Pasquesi) and through eating junk food, this societal misfit walks out of an Overeaters Anonymous meeting in search of satisfaction and meaning only to enter a random ice cream parlor where he encounters Beth (Sara Silverman), an oversexed woman who takes an immediate liking to him. Thoroughly smitten, James' initial ebullience soon fizzles out and his strange relationship with Beth throws a whole different light on a chance encounter with a jazz-fan and teacher (Bonnie Hunt) in a local record store. In the end, James achieves a certain degree of independence, but the viewer is left in doubt about his relative sense of happiness and fulfillment. --Tami Horiuchi
I first found this movie while on vacation, stuck indoors on a rainy day. I wasn't able to finish watching it, so, I bough it on DVD. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Elijah

DVD was excellent. I am a big fan of Sarah Silverman. I like her approach to acting
She is very honest and attractive.
If your a Jeff Garlin fan you'll enjoy this. And don't miss his podcast. And be sure to catch Steve Dahl in this, it's an Oscar performance.Published on September 21, 2013 by B. Fingerhut
Many people will be upset by this movie. Unlike most movies, it doesn't centralize around a single theme. It is a little like Napoleon Dynamite in that way. Read morePublished on December 14, 2012 by NoName
