Tim Lippe has no idea what he's in for when he's sent to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to represent his company at an annual insurance convention, where he soon finds himself under the "guidance" of three convention veterans.
Will (Glenn Howerton) is a 30-something website manager who uses local café, Coffee Town, as his office. When the owners of the shop discuss plans to convert Coffee Town into a bar, Will enlists the help of his two best friends Chad and Gino (Steve Little and Ben Schwartz) to save his freeloading existence. In order to thwart the plans of Coffee Town's owners, the trio stages a robbery to create the illusion of an unsafe neighborhood not suitable for the proposed venue. Also standing in their way is Sam (Josh Groban), a disgruntled barista with delusions of grandeur-he wants to be a rock star-and Will's heartache over unrequited love for Becca (Adrianne Palicki).

you'll like this movie. Witty, funny comedy from a group of fairly unknown actors, whose future looks pretty bright (will Adrianne Palicki become the new Jennifer Aniston?). You get an Arrested Development feel from the comedy, probably because the film's writer was one of the writers for Arrested Development and My Name is Earl, so the humor is similar. The jokes are risky but not raunchy,the characters are interesting, though slightly predictable.The movie comes off as fun, not preachy or burdened with moral judgment or life lessons. There's a funny cameo from Matt Walsh who seems to be everywhere these days, So if your looking for pure comedy this is your movie, sit back and enjoy.
