Ed Helms Goes to ‘Cedar Rapids’

This post refers to blog.moviefone.com

Only the second Sundance movie I have heard anything about. Ed Helms is back as a naive insurance agent who is sent to an insurance convention to try and win some sort of award. Eric D. Snider from Cinematical has some thoughts:

The screenplay, by Phil Johnston (his first feature), was developed with Helms in mind for the lead role, and indeed with Helms’ participation in the brainstorming process. It’s no wonder, then, that it plays to Helms’ strengths. But the story takes Tim’s naivete to implausible extremes, and the comedy suffers.

Sounds like it could be interesting film. I like Helms.
