The material Mowbray's film is familiar and the characters are thin, but the dialog is crisp and witty.
| Original Score: 6/10
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
| Original Score: *
Mowbray has some fine credits, including "A Private Function," but he and his cast cannot breathe life into such hopeless material.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
At best a sporadically amusing sketchbook of theater types.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Isn't quite savvy enough to compete with the slyest entries in that genre or madcap enough to run with the zaniest.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A funny and deft portrait of the self-absorbed world of those involved in creating Broadway plays.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
