The material Mowbray's film is familiar and the characters are thin, but the dialog is crisp and witty.

Meeting Spencer is comprised mainly of actors talking, yet it's funny in that continuous smile kind of way that you don't notice until you're half way through it

Mowbray has some fine credits, including "A Private Function," but he and his cast cannot breathe life into such hopeless material.

Screen International

A screwball comedy without nearly enough zest or wit.

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.

At best a sporadically amusing sketchbook of theater types.

Isn't quite savvy enough to compete with the slyest entries in that genre or madcap enough to run with the zaniest.

A funny and deft portrait of the self-absorbed world of those involved in creating Broadway plays.

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.
