Cedar Rapids

Rated R 87 minutes 2011

Aims for the sweeter side of the street than The Hangover, although leading man Ed Helms, as an incredibly innocent small-town insurance agent who lets it all hang out at a convention in the title Iowa city, merely plays a variation on his character from that earlier buddy comedy. The punch line is more or less that Cedar Rapids is not Las Vegas. Maybe that’s why filmmaker Alexander Payne (About Schmidt, Election) signed on as executive producer. Playing the ultra-straight man’s various temptations are John C. Reilly, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Anne Heche, Alia Shawkat, and Kurtwood Smith. Could easily be rigged as a TV sitcom, and probably will. Directed by Miguel Arteta (Youth in Revolt) from a screenplay by Phil Johnston (86 min.)
