Though I originally saw "The Baxter" based on the fact that I loved the Internet shorts "Stella" I wasn't disappointed when the styles of comedy differed. Baxter takes such a clever angle at filming the tired romantic date movie. The concept of looking at the tale of the knight in shining armor returning to save the leading lady on her wedding day through the eyes of the guy left at the alter is hysterical. This fallows the rules of new comedies that concentrate on oddballs to be there focus, movies like "Napoleon Dynamite" & "Punch Drunk Love". The Baxter is a fun little movie with a great knowledge of film (even if it doesn't practice perfect cinematography) and a good heart. See it.
