Consensus: This quirky romantic comedy's realistic depiction of a lonely guy looking for love is sure to please fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin.

Amy Nicholson
I.E. Weekly

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

Cheese is such a small, endearing and well-observed piece -- sort of Curb Your Enthusiasm without the excruciating bits.

Prairie Miller

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.

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.

G. Allen Johnson
San Francisco Chronicle

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.

Offbeat indie romantic comedy for teens and up.

It's a nice little movie.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

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.

Austin Chronicle

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

Great simple character piece. No flashy camera work, no preposterous "running across the city to win back the woman I love scenes' Everything a movie… More

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… More
