This is the movie with Ed Helms as an insurance agent from a small town in Wisconsin who is forced to go to Cedar Rapids to vie for an award that his Insurance company had won three years in a row. Ed meets some colorful characters there and has all sorts of adventures.
This movie is really good as you might expect. Ed does a nice job in the lead, and the supporting cast (including an appearance by an Arrested Development cast member) is pretty good. The plot is simple enough to follow and will engage you.
I recommend this film highly.

I saw it at a free screening a week ago. I enjoyed it, but I was also glad it was free. It reminded me a little of The Simpsons episode when Homer and Ned went to Vegas and ended up marrying a couple of floozies, with Ed Helms as Ned and John C. Reilly as Homer. (Loosely based, of course.)
Actually, I could see him "fixing" *his* brain to gain their powers. I was thinking how funny it would have been if he had studied Charlie, then unknowingly gave himself a tumor/clot/whatever to gain her power.
