I really like "The Baxter." Now, I am a confessed Showalter, Wain, Black, The State, "Wet Hot", Stella fanatic, so I obviously have a history with these guys and their particular brand of humor. This is a great, sweet, hilarious little movie. These State alumnus guys have a very intelligent, interesting, off kilter type of humor that is definitely love it or not get it. Watch "Stella" sometime with a room full of your friends. Half of them will laugh extremely hard, and half of them won't get it. If you are familiar with Show and his humor, you will love this film. Its much more subtle than Stella or Wet Hot American Summer, but there are some huge laughs in it. It is probably the only romantic comedy I've ever seen that I really like. Highly recommended!
