Cedar Rapids
An insurance agent (Ed Helms) travels to Cedar Rapids for a convention, only to wind up wasted and laid (with John C. Reilly and Anne Heche, respectively). Yes, insurance conventions are better than newspaper conventions. (Fox Searchlight)

Elektra Luxx
In the sequel to an indie flick no one saw (Women in Trouble), famous porn star Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) tries to retire from the biz and become a sex-ed teacher; wackiness, surprise twists and Timothy Olyphant ensue. (Sony)

Louie: Season 1
More uncomfortable than Curb Your Enthusiasm and a more biting commentary on male midlife than Men of a Certain Age, Louie is the anti-sitcom. Get this, then come to the True TV screening of the Season 2 premiere at Brewvies (plug!) Thursday, June 23. (Fox)

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid
Tiffany and Debbie Gibson battle mutated Everglades pythons and alligators and, in a cake-flinging catfight for the cinematic ages, each other. Who wins? America, of course. Spoiler: Don’t expect a sequel. (Image)

Rap Sucks
From director Bill Zebub (yep), comes the story of redneck metalheads who hate rap music but can’t be bothered to do anything about it other than bitch. Or something. Mostly, it’s about Ida Barklund in her underwear. Again, America wins. (MVD)
