A celebrated Broadway director finds his life turned upside down while attempting to raise funding for his big comeback in this contemporary screwball comedy starring Jeffrey Tambor. Harris Chappell (Tambor) wasn't made for Hollywood. When his movie career hits the skids, he hightails it right back to Manhattan. Harris is convinced that he can recapture his status as one of Broadway's leading directors, and heads straight for Frankie & Johnnie's for a meeting with his ex Didi (Melinda McGraw)

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Mowbray has some fine credits, including "A Private Function," but he and his cast cannot breathe life into such hopeless material.
Isn't quite savvy enough to compete with the slyest entries in that genre or madcap enough to run with the zaniest.
This painfully unfunny comedy set in the theater world is no All About Eve.
Within the confines of its stagy artificiality, the thesping mostly rings true.
Like many a movie about a play about a play, Meeting Spencer doesn't have much to say for itself other than all the world's a stage.
The material Mowbray's film is familiar and the characters are thin, but the dialog is crisp and witty.
This claustrophobically unfunny conceit begs the question: Is there anything worse than failed theatrical farce onscreen?
A touch of class and sweet sophistication with a brilliantly funny cast. Definitely an indie sleeper worth checking out.
