Cedar Rapids (2011)

(R) 87 mins

Plot Summary: Tim Lippe has no idea what he’s in for when he’s sent to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to represent his company at an annual insurance convention, where he soon finds himself under the “guidance” of three convention veterans.

Director: Miguel Arteta

Writer: Phil Johnston

Stars: Ed HelmsJohn C. Reilly and Anne Heche

Serious Jest:  (Worth Watching)  I know this is Live from the ManCave, but there’s really no other way to say this: the film is cute.  It’s not going to bowl you over laughing, but this dry comedy will make you smile throughout, and even laugh out loud at times.

The entire cast is excellent.  Helms solidly plays a slight variation of his usual typecast, Reilly stands out as I expected, and Heche almost steals the show with her charisma and sensuality.
