Ed Helms stars in this upbeat comedy as Tim Lippe, a naïve insurance salesman from a small Midwest town. When Tim heads to the “big city” of Cedar Rapids for a convention, he finds himself at odds with Dean, the ultimate party animal (John C. Reilly). Soon, Tim realizes he can’t beat Dean, so he joins him – crashing parties, skinny-dipping in the hotel pool and being seduced by a sexy soccer mom!

Critics Consensus: It's as conventional as its Midwestern setting, but Cedar Rapids boasts a terrific cast and a script that deftly blends R-rated raunch and endearing sweetness.

Everyone does good work here, but for Helms this is a breakout role, and he delivers. Cedar Rapids...

It's funny, offensive, well acted and pointless.

Cedar Rapids slowly squanders its apparently fruitful set-up, heading towards a weak, sappy ending...

Its breezy charm papers over narrative cracks and minor annoyances.

Common Sense Says
Raunchy comedy is packed with sex, drinking, and swearing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this raunchy "hard R" comedy in the tradition of Animal House is about a group of men who cut loose and go crazy (some of them for the very first time) and then eventually take down a corrupt and hypocritical authority figure. The movie includes massive amounts of language, with some of the most creative and abundant swearing in ages. There's also heavy sexual innuendo and references to lots of sexual situations (multiple partners, adultery, prostitution, etc.). And there's heavy drinking, as well as use of hard drugs like crack. Thanks to a funny trailer and the presence of Hangover co-star Ed Helms, teens may be attracted to this envelope-pushing comedy, but it's really best left for adults.
