Movie Info

A "professional student" lands a truly remarkable job in this witty made-for-TV fantasy adventure. Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is a 30-year-old graduate student who has managed to collect a whopping 22 university degrees; despite his brilliance, shy Flynn seems to have a hard time with the real world, and his mentor at school finally has him expelled so he can start putting his knowledge to work.

It's all totally lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek and never dares to be serious about anything, which is refreshing.

It's a fun cheesy cable TV flick, a slice of winking B movie giddiness that charms us into smiling through all the nonsense.

Audience Reviews for The Librarian: Quest for the Spear

No more than the Indiana Jones of the library made for TV. 1st of 3 films in this series, I doubt I will waste my time with the other 2 movies, just to much better stuff out there. 2 1/2 stars

Mindless but fun spoof of Indiana Jones and the like. Wyle is a geeky pleasure in the lead with Sonya Walger beautiful and tough as his protector. Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin and Olympia Dukakis add nice touches in small roles.

A good one for the family. This is another one that looks too much like a TV series than an actual movie but it is surprisingly a good sitting.

A nice round of usual comedy that is fitting for the family with an adventurous story that keeps things interesting.

The CGI is terrible but the film managed to keep me entertained.

He didn't want to be a hero. He only wanted a job.

    1. Flynn Carsen: Well then, we better call the police.
    2. Charlene: Oh yeah, call the police. Tell them about the Spear of Destiny, the golden goose, the lost Ark. Enjoy your stay in the psych ward. I understand Thorazine comes in vanilla now.

    2. Flynn Carsen: [fiddles with controls] Easy as pie.
    3. Flynn Carsen: [helicopter starts malfunctioning and flying erratically] Horrible! Horrible! High-velocity pie of death!
