Required Reading – The Baxter

by Dustin D'Addato on July 14, 2009

The State DVD is finally out.  Whatever you are doing right now instead of getting it is dumb.  While you are at it might I also suggest you check out The Baxter.  A funny and quirky little movie featuring most of the guys in The State plus Paul Rudd and Michelle Williams (who is just as cute as a button in this movie).  Don’t be fooled by the fact that you can only really find it on IFC right now, it not pretentious or anything.

I totally love the idea behind it too.  There are so many movies about a super awesome hero character that fights to get back the woman that he loves and stops her at the alter before she’s about to marry some loser whom she promptly dumps and runs off with the hero.  The Baxter is about the loser who gets dumped (several times actually).  The clip doesn’t do it justice, but I promise you will enjoy the movie or your money back (the money you pay to read The Comedy Nerds, which is zero money, not the money you spend on the movie.)
