Good Acting & Directing, Weak Story & Characters Feb. 6 2012
By Alan Caylow - Published on Amazon.com
An alcoholic, out-of-work actor (Stephen Barker Turner) cheats on his successful TV executive wife (Daphne Zuniga) with a trashy, men-using bimbo (Heather Gordon) he meets at a party. He suffers the consequences for his infidelity, and we, the audience, don't care....

That pretty much sums up "Seducing Charlie Barker", a small independent comedy directed by Amy Glazer. The fault with this film lies not with Glazer, who directs very skillfully, nor her talented cast, who are all quite good (including Daphne Zuniga as the scorned wife, Stephen Barker Turner as the loser title character, and the gorgeous Heather Gordon as the bimbo Clea who brings about Charlie's downfall). The problem with "Seducing Charlie Barker" is the story and characters themselves---this is a really unpleasant film about some truly despicable people you wouldn't want to hang around with. The film also teeters towards male-bashing as the women have all the power while the men are portrayed as wimps. And we don't care for Charlie Barker either because he is such a jerk. He deserves the outcome he gets. Seriously folks, if a guy is out-of-work and living off his wife's earnings, the WORST thing he could do is cheat on her. He shouldn't be cheating on his wife to begin with, but cheating on her when he's *unemployed*??? Stupid, stupid Charlie....

"Seducing Charlie Barker" is based on a stage play called "The Scene" (and Heather Gordon, in fact, originated the role of Clea in the stage production). This material may work decently enough for the stage, but, for all of it's verbal bite, it just isn't good enough to warrant a film version. It's a movie that basically adds up to nothing. Still, the acting is good and the direction is good, so it's not a total failure, but there's no getting around that the story and characters are weak. If you must see "Seducing Charlie Barker", don't buy it, just rent it. You'll probably only watch it once anyway.
Very Very Poor Film! March 11 2015

Worst movie ever! I know one of the "stars" personally and that is why I bought it. I thought the plot non-existent and the acting very poor. The flashes of body parts were stupid and made the film even cheaper than without them.

Repulsive Nov. 24 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A story about a narcissistic infantile failing actor who is kept by his hard working executive wife. Unhappy with his life and career trajectory, he embarks on an affair with a self serving manipulative, MAW. Unfortunately people like this do exist. However watching this pathetic excuse of a male wallow around with his self indulgent , destructive antics and vile behavior is neither funny or moving. This new paradigm of the terminally adolescent kept man as appropriate social dynamic will leave a lot of women reaching for a medicine cabinet, a lawyer's number, or a loaded gun.

Possibly one of the WORST FILMS EVER MADE !!!! You would get more out of reading a phone book, that is written in Chinese! May 23 2013
