Cedar Rapids (R)


Ed Helms nails his part as small-town insurance salesman Tim Lippe. Tim has never traveled beyond the borders of Brown Valley, Wis., but he must fly to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for an insurance convention. Party animal Dean Ziegler (John C. Reilly) is placed in Tim’s hotel room along with straight-shooter Ronald Wilkes (wonderfully played by Isiah Whitlock Jr.). Throw into the mix Anne Heche as a vixen on the loose and laughs follow like water from a showerhead.
