Ed Helms should never stop singing. I love all his nerdy songs. And in “Cedar Rapids” he belted out the perfect Christmas tune about insurance.
There were other really funny moments in this movie about a sheltered insurance salesman who goes to a conference in the big city – Cedar Rapids. He makes new friends, including the bad boy of insurance, John C. Reilly, and a hooker.
Even though I did really like this movie, I laughed a lot, cared about the characters, and was interested the whole way through, I kind of expected more. It got such good reviews and won film fest awards. So I thought I was in for more than a solid comedy.
