Cedar Rapids may be pushing its cred — Sundance selection, it’s a Fox Searchlight movie, the costuming is ostensibly drab and unflattering — but it sure looks like a mainstream goofball comedy to me. Come for Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, and Rob Corddry being silly; stay for Isiah Whitlock Jr. making a joke about The Wire. And Anne Heche as a red-head. (And Alia Shawkat as a prostitute.)
I like a good nerd-lets-loose story, and Ed Helms does the uptight-guy schtick as well as it can possibly be done.
Are you looking forward to Cedar Rapids?
