A "professional student" lands a truly remarkable job in this witty made-for-TV fantasy adventure. Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is a 30-year-old graduate student who has managed to collect a whopping 22 university degrees; despite his brilliance, shy Flynn seems to have a hard time with the real world, and his mentor at school finally has him expelled so he can start putting his knowledge to work. Things are not much better for him at home, where his mother, Margie (Olympia Dukakis), wants him to meet a nice girl and settle down on his own. Needing a job, Flynn finds an unexpected opening with the New York Metropolitan Library, where Judson (Bob Newhart) and Charlene (Jane Curtin) hire him to look after a special collection. And a very special collection it is -- unknown to the world, the library has been caring for the world's most precious relics, including the Holy Grail, Pandora's Box, the Golden Fleece, the Sword of Excalibur and the Mona Lisa (the real one...turns out the Louvre only has a copy). It isn't long before Flynn learns how dangerous his job can be when he's approached by Lana (Kelly Hu) and Rhodes (David Dayan Fisher), members of a secret underground mob known as the Serpent Brotherhood who happen to know that Flynn is the new guardian of the Spear of Destiny -- and will stop at nothing to take it from him.

      Unexpected Destiny?

      I admit that I found out about The Librarian Quest For The Spear through seeing The Librarian tv series featured as an advertisement on the Castle Tv Series that I happened to see on tv (as a result through a search related to the tv series I found this movie and was intrigued). The Librarian Quest For The Spear stars Noah Wyle as Flynn Carsen. Carsen gets offered a job interview at the Metropolitan Public Library and his life is dramatically changed one he decides to go for the interview. He’s extremely close to his mother Margie (Olympia Dukakis) who is rooting for him to find a romantic relationship and a stable job. Charlene (Jane Curtin) and fellow library director Judson (Bob Newhart) go ahead and hire Flynn Carsen for the librarian position. The job that Flynn Carsen is hired into ends up being even better than he expected. He discovers that a woman by the name of Sonya Walger (played by Nicole Noone) is hired to protect him after he is sent on a mission to retrieve back an important Destiny Spear stolen from the library. He finds this out after an attempt on his life from an encounter via the Serpent of Brotherhood group members of Lana (Kelly Hu), Rhodes (David Dayan Fisher), and Edward Wilde (Kyle Maclachlan).

      This is an excellent movie. It is very funny and is kind of a cross over between an Indiana Jones movie and a National Treasure Movie. The hero is a 'professional student' with 22 degrees and takes a job where he has to save the world from artifacts that most people believe to be only legend. The cast is top notch and seemed to have a lot of fun making this movie. If you like the National Treasue movies you will like this one!
