Superlative! Do Not Miss!
11 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Meeting Spencer is a hilarious comedy that entertains all movie and theatre goers alike. Set in NYC at Frankie & Johnnies Steakhouse, we walk into the restaurant ready to "seal the deal" on the next Broadway "hit" and exit with a comical change of direction for our theatre production on turn of the century coal miners. At every stage of our evening out at this NYC landmark, whether at the bar or prancing about the restaurant, writers Andrew Kole, Andrew Delaplaine, and Scott Kasdin placed great wit at every spot providing a well-paced film. Director Malcolm Mowbray navigated the audience through each scene masterfully over each careful string of the deal-web without losing even the most novice movie or theatre goer. Jeffrey Tambor is stellar as the theatre director and ringleader for the theatre troupe with his ravishing and impeccable Melinda McGraw. Spencer, our up and coming actor, played by Jesse Plemons, helps us all identify with the novice who is looking to learn the ropes; Plemons certainly manages to climb the ropes fast with assistance of the reporter, played by the voluptuous Jill Marie Jones, and equally enticing actor Mark Harelik, who gives Spencer his confidence to move on. Superlative performances from all others! Whether we follow the sexual innuendos or the interactions between the young and old, the audience is continuously taken on a roller coaster of the "deal"—casting and recasting the leads, enlisting investors, signing on agents, and setting up Hollywood film makers. Meeting Spencer is a crafted film sure to amuse every viewer. Producer and attorney George Braunstein and director Malcolm Mowbray gave us a film with a sensational troupe of actors who are sure to make you double over in your seat!
