Cedar Rapids

TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY… OF THE REST OF HIS WEEKEND.

cedarrapidsMeek insurance agent Tim Lippe (Ed Helms) is sent to a conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but is less than prepared for the heavy drinking and sexual escapades that’s part of it. Considering the success of The Hangover (2009), there’s no surprise in seeing Helms do a similar character in a comedy that on paper looks like a simple repeat. The story has few surprises, but heart in a way that The Hangover didn’t. The movie benefits from Helms’s performance as a smug, good Christian from the heartland, and John C. Reilly as his opposite, a tiresome macho bore with lovable traits.

2011-U.S. 86 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Miguel Arteta.Ā Cast:Ā Ed Helms (Tim Lippe), John C. Reilly (Dean Ziegler), Anne Heche (Joan Ostrowski-Fox), Isiah Whitlock, Jr., Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Rootā€¦ Kurtwood Smith, Thomas Lennon.

Trivia: Co-produced by Alexander Payne.
