Variety
May find a following among those who stand in awe of the names Sandler, Ferrell and Spade. But Showalter pushes too far: Nerdiness, after all, can be only so attractive. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
A tender love story and a dead-on lampoon of the genre, but its main drawback is that Showalter is egregiously miscast in the title role. Full Review

Washington Post
With The Baxter, Showalter's begging his way into the ranks of the safe and the mediocre. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
A wheel-spinner. The more the film stresses and strains to be funny, the unfunnier it gets. Full Review
