IFC Films | Release Date: September 5, 2007
Summary: James is a frustrated and underappreciated Chicago actor who lives with his mother and has only really wanted three things in life: someone to love him, a great part, and to lose weight. Unfortunately, he is 0 for 3. His girlfriend dumps him, he loses the title roles in a remake of Paddy Chayefsky’s Marty to teen idol Aaron Carter, and he sneaks out of an Overeaters Anonymous meeting only to wind up at an ice cream parlor. There, 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? (IFC Films)
