This movie takes place in a small town in Iowa, yet the jokes aren’t about the goofy local residents. The insurance salesmen at the convention are the buffoons.
This cast is perfect. Ed Helms at the lead. John C. Reilly is someone we laugh at any time he enters a scene. Thomas Lennon (Reno 911) always cracks up in his cameos. Anne Heche plays a nut-job, perfect casting there. Isiah Whitlock, Jr. is hysterical as the straight man, although it’s unfortunate that many of his funny scenes are in the trailers (and it’s cheating having him make a joke aboutThe Wire, when he’s actually on that show). Stephen Root was wasted in a role that would’ve gone to Rip Torn had this been made 15 years ago. Rob Corddry, one of Helms’ fellowDaily Showcorrespondents, is great in his small role as a crazy partier. Kurtwood Smith, who you'll recognize as the father fromThat 70s Show, was great as the insurance guru everyone is trying to impress (well, everyone but Reilly).
