The Baxter(2005) 91 min - Comedy|Romance - 24 April 2005(USA)
I rated this wonderful little New York based film 8 out of 10 stars. There is one scene in particular where the hero and heroine have a heart to heart talk in the bathroom of a poetry joint. The walls are covered in graffiti and red candles are lit in the background. The scene is very artsy and very, very New York. Loved it!
In the style of a Howard Hawks comedy, Baxter follows the twists and turns of a young man's life during the two weeks before his wedding.

Friends with Benefits(2011) 109 min - Comedy|Romance - 22 July 2011(USA)
I saw Friends with Benefits within the last year or so, but can hardly remember a thing about it. I do recall enjoying it at the time tho, so that is a good thing and I rated it 7 out of 10 stars on IMBD. Oh I believe I do remember a scene where the characters go to the roof of a building in Manhattan. I just looked it up, the roof scene is on Park Avenue.
