Tax accountant Elliot Sherman is a "Baxter" - a guy who never actually gets the girl. From high school to college to business school, Elliot always finds himself on the losing end of the love triangle. Elliot thinks his luck has changed when he meets his dream woman, Caroline Swann. But two weeks before their wedding, her high school sweetheart turns up, out of the blue, triggering Elliot's fears of yet another colossal dumping. Then, he meets Cecil Mills, a temp secretary and aspiring singer, who encourages him to assert himself, which leads to surprising results.
• Michelle plays Cecil, the adorable temp who shakes up Elliot’s life.
• Michelle previously co-starred with Peter Dinklage in The Station Agent.
