TUL's Take: The Baxter

Last night's screening of The Baxter proved to be an enjoyable movie and I encourage those of you out there to check it out when it opens this Friday in the DC area. If you like a romantic comedy with subtle State-like humor alongside some great writing then this is right down your alley. If you're coming into the theater expecting Wet Hot American Summer redux you'll be sadly disappointed. In terms of reality, this one shoots more towards the mainstream side of things but all the familiar faces still remain. Michael Ian Black, David Wain, and of course the incomparable Paul Rudd are just a few of the recognizable actors/actresses that comprise many of the supporting roles in the film. I'm not going to go into details, but Michael Showalter's affable character of Elliot Sherman is portrayed very well and reminds you of the love-starved Coop from WHAS sans the 80s shorts and talking can of vegetables (don't ask). It's in no terms a groundbreaking movie, but the script flows well and demonstrates that even someone like a Baxter can find true happiness. Maybe these two should go one evening and proceed to hug it out.
