Ed Helms is marginally amusing. +1 for Helms smoking meth with Maybee Funke. +2 for the two of them snorting coke. +3 for casting Clay Davis. -6 for having Clay Davis talk about The Wire not once but twice. John C. Reilly is reasonably funny in a role where he doesn’t have to try. Rob Corddry has a sizable neck tattoo. Helms gets to have sex with Sigourney Weaver, which is at least half supposed to make us say “ick” because she’s old or whatnot. Anne Heche plays Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Sometimes funny, really drags at times. All in all, a passable comedy. At least the humor about the Midwest is relatively warm-hearted.

6/10
