Cedar Rapids trailer online

EdHelms.jpgI wasn't really getting the trailer for Cedar Rapids until the end and a couple of scenes that made me giggle, up until then I was watching scenes from comedy films I've seen before, and not cut in an original way at all.

Maybe if I watch the trailer for the film about an insurance agent who ventures out of his sheltered life in his home town to a convention once more those giggles might start earlier.

Cedar Rapids stars Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Sigourney Weaver, Anne Heche, Rob Corddry, Alia Shawkat, Stephen Root, to name but a few, and is directed by Michael Arteta who last year directed Youth in Revolt.

The story is about a man who has lived a sheltered life in his home town, never venturing far from it, until now. For at aged thirty four his being sent to an insurance convention where he's told to stay clear of a couple of infamous convention figures. He doesn't, and soon he's having wild parties and having his eyes opened up to all sorts of life changing events.

For me the trailer didn't come alive until The Wire joke and then the moment with the peanuts on the plane, both tickled me rather than the pretty standard American comedy that was being shown before.

Have a look at the trailer for Cedar Rapids, which you can also see on Apple Trailers, and see what you think:
