It would be easy to dismiss The Seat Filler as a by-the-numbers romantic comedy, the only difference being its mostly black cast.

Females take it on the chin with the description of one as "a snaggle-toothed crack-head with four baby-daddies." Worse, it is suggested to the protagonist that dating a prostitute would be a step up for him. Sorry, no redeeming qualities.

Audience Reviews for The Seat Filler

Great movie...should have been in the Box Office... rent it today or buy it at Target ASAP... you'll thank me.

Glendalee Jackson

What I loved about this movie was the characters knew each before they knew each other just by looking into the mirrors of their souls...and status did not have a factor in their love!
