Ed Helms and John C. Reilly party and sell insurance in the trailer for Cedar Rapids

12.22.2010

Former "Daily Show" correspondent Ed Helms found success with THE HANGOVER, in which he played an uptight guy who gets liberated during a trip that turns wild. In CEDAR RAPIDS, he... does that again.

The quirky comedy, co-starring John C. Reilly, is produced by Alexander Payne (SIDEWAYS) and directed by Miguel Arteta (THE GOOD GIRL), and features some great supporting players like Sigourney Weaver, Anne Heche, Stephen Root, Kurtwood Smith, Rob Corddry and Isiah Whitlock Jr. ("sheee-it").

The synopsis: To call insurance agent Tim Lippe (Ed Helms), "naive" is a gross understatement. He's never left his small hometown. He's never stayed at a hotel. And he's never experienced anything like Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sent to represent his company at the annual insurance convention, Tim is soon distracted by three convention veterans (John C. Reilly, Anne Heche and Isiah Whitlock Jr.) who will show him the ropes and push his boundaries. For a guy who plays everything by the book, this convention will be anything but conventional.

Check out the trailer below or in HD at Apple.

I see a lot of great faces in the cast. I absolutely love that the guy who played Senator Clay "Sheeeeeeit" Davis in The Wire actually references the show (and Omar) there at the end of the trailer. It's like Stallone calling Rambo a pussy in Tango and Cash. I dig it when they break the fourth wall like that.

Bad trailer, i'll check the movie out still though i like most the people in it. though i did prefer John C. Riley more when he was doing less comedy, he needs to work with PTA again.

I live in Cedar Rapids.

I was really excited for this until they decided to shoot it in another state. We're still in many ways recovering from a devastating flood in 2008 and it's disappointing that they didn't film here. It would have been a lot of fun for the community and lifted everyone's spirits, as well.

Self-referential "Wire" humor is the best kind of humor.

I live about 30 minutes from Cedar Rapids, so this is definitely on my must see list. Looks like a lot of fun.
