Wes and I had a chance to see a new film last night. Cedar Rapids had a screening as part of Sundance USA, a program that tries to bring a taste of Sundance to several film-loving cities. Cedar Rapids stars Ed Helms (The Office, The Hangover) and John C. Reilly. It's a very sweet but funny story of an naive insurance salesman who goes to a conference in Cedar Rapids. The director, Miguel Arteta (Youth in Revolt, The Good Girl) was in attendance and did a Q&A. I would show you the trailer but I think it gives away some of the best parts of the movie--why do they do that?! If you like somewhat offbeat comedies you should check it out.
