"Cedar Rapids" opens in a couple of weeks, but Fox Searchlight is feeling pretty good about the film, and not without reason. The first trailer for the film was a winner and with a cast featuring Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, Anne Heche, Isiah Whitlock Jr. (Sen. R. Clayton ‘Clay’ Davis from “The Wire”) Sigourney Weaver, Alia Shawkat, Rob Corddry, Stephen Root and more, you'd have to fuck up pretty hard to mess it up. So no surprise that the studio has taken the film to Sundance to get some good buzz building in advance of its release, and have also given MTV an exclusive, and pretty amusing, clip.

So no surprise that the studio has taken the film to Sundance to get some good buzz building in advance of its release, and have also given MTV an exclusive, and pretty amusing, clip.

The film centers on a dull and dimwitted Midwestern insurance salesman (Helms) who travels to a big-city convention in an effort to save the jobs of his co-workers and from there, things get out of control. In this clip from the film Isiah Whitlock Jr busts out a great take on Omar Little from "The Wire." And if you haven't seen "The Wire" you should just stop reading here, go get all five seasons and don't come back until you've devoured them all.

"Cedar Rapids" opens on February 11th. Clip below.
