Product Description

A struggling law student (Duane Martin) takes a job as an awards show seat filler. One day, he is seated next to the beautiful pop superstar Jhnelle (Kelly Rowland), who mistakes him for an industry executive. With an instant chemistry, the two fall for each other, but he must choose between his conscience and the love of his life.

Amazon.com

A slight but charming romantic comedy, The Seat Filler stars Duane Martin (Scream 2, Above the Rim) as Derrick, a young man struggling to make ends meet as he studies for the bar exam. To make some extra cash, Derrick takes a job as a "seat filler"--a person who hops into an unoccupied chair at a televised awards show to make attendance look perpetually full. At one event, Derrick happens to be seated next to recording star Jhnelle (Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child), and breaks one of the cardinal rules of seat-filling: he starts a conversation. Things click, and soon Derrick's small fibs become major lies as he tries to sustain the mutual romantic attraction. From there the movie travels in mostly expected directions, but it's quite funny, especially spiked with the manic antics of Derrick's best friend, E.J. (DeRay Davis). The Seat Filler is the initial entry in a new way of distributing films called the Momentum Experience. Instead of traditional movie-distribution deals, the Momentum Experience presents African American-themed movies in non-traditional venues, preceded by live music and comedy. The Seat Filler isn't a movie that will change the world, but the Momentum Experience may in a small way change an industry. --David Horiuchi

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.

I had the opportunity to see this movie when it came to town with the whole momentum experience thing. Great Movie! It should have been released to theatres normally but they were trying out a whole new idea of spreading movies to urban areas which was successful.

Kelly Rowland of Destinys Child does a fantastic job in this movie. She kills it and the songs are great!! and she should have good career in Hollywood now thats shes done with Destiny's Child.

Duane Martin also does a good job. De Ray Davis and Co as well. it is a good movie to buy and to have as your collection. I would give it 5 stars. Nice, funny movie.

I bought this DVD because I'm a huge fan of Destiny's Child, especially Kelly Rowland. I was very pleasantly surprised by the depth of this movie. It's acted with vivacity and true emotion by all its stars, and it contains moments that make you laugh out loud, as well as times when you want to cry.
Duane Martin stars as Derrick, a broke college student studying to be a lawyer, and who's desperately seeking a job. He is prodded into being a seat filler, someone who occupies the places of absent people to make the audience look complete at awards shows, by his hilarious best friend E.J. (played wonderfully by DeRay Davis). While filling in for a famous entertainment attorney, he meets the gorgeous and charismatic pop star Jhnelle (Kelly Rowland). Before either of them know what is happening, they're falling in love with each other. Perfect, right? Wrong! Jhnelle thinks he's Al Grant, the famous attorney, and has no idea that he's just a seat filler. Derrick doesn't want to lose her love and trust, so he has to do everything he can to keep her from the truth, with a little (well-meant but very unhelpful) assistance from E.J. Other stars include Melanie Brown (that's right... Scary Spice!) as Sandie, Jhnelle's best friend, and Patrick Fischler as Irwin, her crazy manager. The DVD also features awesome deleted scenes, and an extended performance of Kelly's great tune, "Follow Your Destiny." My only complaint for this film is that it doesn't have a soundtrack, with complete versions of her other amazing songs in this movie. Nevertheless, I would encourage anyone who loves a good, romantic comedy to check this one out!

Both Kelly Rowland and Duane Martin portray their characters believably and appealingly in this entertaining romantic comedy. DeRay Davis is hilarious as Martin's roommate, and Melanie Brown also puts in a solid performance as Rowland's assistant. The story is well-paced, for the most part. Things seem a little bit rushed toward the latter part of the movie; but the music selections provide a consistently pleasing backdrop. I especially enjoy Rowland's performance of "I Need a Love" and wish that the song would be made available in full for purchase!

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....

I think Duane and Kelly Rowlands both did their thing in this film. It was an enjoyable and tasteful film about true love and how people can connect during the strangest moments. Kelly is truly a beautiful and talanted woman, and I wish her the best in life. It was simple, but good, and once in a while we need films like this to escape horrid films like that Killer cam movie...what was he thinkin. But I truly did enjoy the seat filler. I laughed and smiled.
