Seducing Charlie Barker
A sexy and ferociously funny Feature Film. Seducing Charlie Barker is a sad, hilarious, witty and right-on rendering of a talented but out of work New York actor, Charlie Barker, whose disenchantment with the surreal contradictions of show business leaves him vulnerable to the charms of a language-annihilating narcissistic party girl, Clea. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An intermittently interesting but fatally clichéd comedy of personal and professional suicide."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Everything about this movie feels right, from its sardonic score to its assured camera work and cutting."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Seducing Charlie Barker is a big so-what, but you leave wanting more Heather Gordon, who might be something in a more original movie."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"Astute show business satire packs a darkly comic punch."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Suffers from a case of Haven't-I-Seen-This-Movie-Before-itis."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Unaffecting central performance is a severe liability in this study of the Lower Depths descent of a New York actor."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"In adapting her recent play The Scene, Theresa Rebeck can't find a consistent tone for her material or players."
‑ Brian Miller, Village Voice
"By the final frame, Charlie isn't the only one who gets his pants charmed off."
‑ Karen D'Souza, Contra Costa Times
"Seducing Charlie Barker may have been made on a skimpy budget, but it's got everything a studio would pay big money for."
‑ Beverly Berning,
