The Seat Filler
The romantic comedy The Seat Filler stars Duane Martin as a law student working very hard to keep his head above water financially. He takes a job as a seat filler at a big awards function where he meets a famous singer (Kelly Rowland). She believes he works in show business and he does nothing to disabuse her of this notion. That leads to him having to go to larger and larger measures to keep his lie going when their relationship continues.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It would be easy to dismiss The Seat Filler as a by-the-numbers romantic comedy, the only difference being its mostly black cast."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Females take it on the chin with the description of one as "a snaggle-toothed crack-head with four baby-daddies." Worse, it is suggested to the protagonist that dating a prostitute would be a step up for him. Sorry, no redeeming qualities."
‑ Kam Williams, Black Book News
