Jeffrey Tambor in a great role
21 May 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

It was great to see Jeffrey Tambor carry a movie like this. He shows himself as a great talent, leading an ensemble. The material is a little complex because of being about the inside workings of show business, but it moves and it's funny & smart. It was particularity good seeing old Morgan Shepard as the cranky veteran Broadway star. Also I particularly liked seeing Yvonne Zima as the young and beautiful coat-check girl; I've been a fan of her older sister Madeline for some time. If fact all the women are wonderfully appealing and playful.

"Meeting Spencer" is my kind of movie because it reminds me of the great movies about Broadway and Hollywood like "The Producers" and "All About Eve." It was fluke that I ended up at a preview screening, so I'd keep an extra eye out for this movie.
