Review of Cedar Rapids Movie

Cedar Rapids was a great comedy film. Ed Helms and John C. Reilly really put together an oddball couple of sorts, with one on the mild side and one on the wild side.

Ed Helms is Tim Lippe, a man who things everything is not what it seems. He starts dating his old teacher, who is quite a few years older than him. He believes it is a steady relationship, while only seeing each other once a week. Working for an insurance company, with their star agent dead, he is sent to the annual convention to try to win the diamond award.  He being told my numerous people to stay clear of Dan Zeigler (John C Reilly), who is someone who would ruin a persons chances at winning the prestigious award.

Eventually Ed lets loose, and goes a bit wild the next few nights. He feels guilty about his behaviour, and ends up calling his teacher in his home town telling what happened. Nearly falling apart, he goes on another wild binge, after things could not get much worse. In the end, he must make a decision on whether to do something dishonest to win, and then relinquish the actions.

A good film, I give it a 4.5 on 5. Watch out for the shock humor, as there is probably an age limit to this film. But, all in all, very well done. Finally, getting back to true comedy.  Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
