The Baxter (2005)

PG-13 04/24/2005 (US) ComedyRomance 1h 31m

A romantic comedy for anyone who's ever been dumped.


A man with a "doormat" personality tries standing up for himself for a change in this comedy. Mild mannered tax accountant Elliot Sherman is what he calls a "Baxter": the kind of calm, unexciting fellow who "wears sock garters" and "enjoys raking leaves." Loved by bosses and parents, Elliot is a perfectly nice guy. And that's his problem.
