Movie Reviews

A Really Great Romantic Comedy
Dorrie Wheeler | 02/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Seat Filler is a movie that you don't want to miss. Kelly Rowland, singer, model, and 1/3rd of super group Destiny's Child stars in the movie as Jhnele. Jhnele is an internationally known singer. Duane Martin (who hasn't aged since his early 90's series "Up All Night") stars as Derrick. Derrick is a law student. He and his friend E.J. work as seat fillers to make a little extra money.

At an awards show she is seated next to Derrick and sparks fly. The problem with Derrick and Jhnele the couple is that Derrick is living a lie when it comes to his relationship with Jhnele. She thinks that he is a powerful Hollywood lawyer. Derrick is everything Jhnele wants in a man, he is far more considerate than her previous man (portrayed by actor Shemar Moore). Jhnele confides in her confidant and personal assistant Sandie. Sandie is portrayed by another real life pop star, former Spice Girl Melanie Brown shines in her role as Jhenele's best friend. Kelly Rowland can really act and her and Duane Martin have great on screen chemistry. The Seat Filler is a great feel good movie. Comedian DeRay Davis has a large role in the movie and he really brings the funny in every scene that he is in. Will Derrick and Jhenele's relationship survive when she learns that he is really just a law student?

The Seat Filler is a really great romantic comedy that all audiences will enjoy. The music is good too and the song that Kelly Rowland performs that plays as the ending credits roll is awesome."

"Kelly Rowlands does a wonderful job portraying her character Jhnelle in this, endearing film. Duane Martin has you rooting for Derrick, because it's not hard to relate to his situation. Sometimes, it's easier to be someone else than it is to just being yourself! The chemistry between the two is sweet.

Look forward to seeing more from Ms. Rowlands in the near future, both musically and theatrically.

I highly recommend this one."
Great Movie to watch

"This movie was hilarious. Even though singing is what Kelly does on a regular basis she really put her all into this movie. The first time I saw the preview was at the Destiny's Child concert. Though it was only playing at Imax theatres in certain areas. I was upset. I was going crazy looking around for this movie. It later came DVD almost a year later. I finally found it and laughed from the begining to the end. D. Ray is silly along with Dwayne Martin. They couldnt have done better with the actors and actress's they choose for this movie. It will be money well spent...."
