Miguel Arteta
Released:
2011
Rating:
R
Cedar Rapids is a 2011 comedy film about a naive insurance agent (Ed Helms) who is sent to represent his company at a regional conference when his co-worker dies in an auto-erotic asphyxiation accident. The script, written by Phil Johnston was included on the 2009 Blacklist, a Hollywood list of the most popular unproduced screenplays of the year. Ed Helms stars as a down-and-out insurance salesman who goes to bat for his fellow employees at a trade conference in this Miguel Arteta-directed comedy co-starring John C. Reilly and Sigourney Weaver. Sideways' Alexander Payne produces the Fox Searchlight pic, with scripting duties handled by Phil Johnston.

    Though not as uproarious as "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," director Miguel Arteta's consistently entertaining white-collar laffer could do for Helms what that film did for Steve Carell.
