Director: Miguel Arteta
“A wistful, equally tender and raunchy comedy of self-discovery… the jokes sing as well as zing.” - New York Times
Tim Lippe (The Hangover's Ed Helms) is a naive 34-year-old insurance salesman who has never moved out of the family home. But his life begins to open up after he's unexpectedly delegated to go to the company's annual insurance convention. Finding himself for the first time in a proper city, surrounded by hard-drinking insurance folk and the myriad temptations of convention life, Tim starts to make a difficult, albeit hilarious, break with his past.
Boasting a stellar cast that includes John C. Reilly, Sigourney Weaver and Anne Heche, this rambunctious 30-something coming-of-age comedy from director Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl) and producer Alexander Payne is a warm and witty tribute to friendship, growing up and the unexpected entertainments of the insurance industry.
