The Baxter and I was pleasantly surprised. I had no idea whatsoever that I would be treated with roles from Michael Ian Black, David Wain, Joe Lo Truglio and Paul Rudd. The first three all being alumni of The State. Anyway, the movie was a magnificent departure from the normal romantic comedy. The awkwardness of Showalter's character, Elliot Sherman, is a little difficult to get used to and the plasticity of Elizabeth Banks' as the fiance makes her seem more like a prop that moves along the plot than an actual character. I will have to say that I did enjoy the main antagonist's balls out style of alpha male dominance. Justin Theroux, who I am not familiar with, is a treat as the ex-boyfriend, Bradley Lake.
I would recommend this movie to people who like independent films, fans of The State, fans of romantic comedies and fans of quirky odd underdogs (Michael Showalter and Michelle Williams).
