Cedar Rapids 2011

Cedar Rapids is a 2011 American comedy film about a naive insurance agent (Ed Helms) who is sent to represent his company at a regional conference when his boss 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.

Plot: To call insurance agent Tim Lippe (Ed Helms) “naive” is a gross understatement. He’s never left his small Wisconsin hometown. He’s never stayed at a hotel. And he’s never experienced anything like Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sent to the “major metropolis” to represent his company at the annual insurance convention, Tim is soon distracted by three convention veterans (John C. Reilly, Anne Heche and Isiah Whitlock Jr.) who will show him the ropes and push his boundaries. For a guy who plays everything by the book, this convention will be anything but conventional.
