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).

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.
