Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

When a naive, small-town insurance agent named Tim Lippe (Ed Helms, The Hangover) goes to a convention in the big city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, his life gets turned inside out under the influence of three convention veterans. This sort of fish-out-of-water comedy could have been a flimsy excuse for broad slapstick and absurd high jinks; instead, in the confident hands of director Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl, Chuck & Buck), Cedar Rapids becomes something more humane and, in a quiet way, more ambitious. Helms manages to make Tim genuine, a man-child but not a cartoon; the movie's situations skirt wackiness, yet always remain in the realm of something emotionally real. (The movie also reflects the influence of producers Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, who created the similarly character-rich movies Sideways, Almost Schmidt, and Election.) The whole cast hits the right notes, from such familiar faces as John C. Reilly (Magnolia, Talladega Nights), Anne Heche, and Sigourney Weaver to such stealthy character actors as Stephen Root (NewsRadio), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire), and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development). Cedar Rapids is sweet without being cloying, funny without being manic, and even a little sad at times, without ever turning up the violins on the soundtrack. It's an honest movie, and there are all too few of them out there. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

The funniest business trip of all time gets even crazier with the Super-Awesome Edition of Cedar Rapids — more hysterical footage, more outrageous shenanigans and more two-diamond fun!

Ed Helms (The Hangover 1 & 2) and John C. Reilly (Step Brothers) lead an all-star cast in the comedy that shows what can happen...when insurance agents go wild! Shy and naive Tim Lippe (Helms) ventures to the “big city” of Cedar Rapids for a convention and ends up crossing paths with the ultimate party animal (Reilly). Before long, Tim is crashing parties, skinny-dipping in the hotel pool and being seduced by a sexy soccer mom. And if Tim can survive the weekend, he might just change his life forever!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Clever, Touching Comedy May 29, 2011
Format:DVD
Cedar Rapids is a sweet, but never sappy, comedy from director Miguel Arteta, who specializes in small films, usually comedies, which are almost anti-Hollywood in the way they allow humor to come naturally from well-developed characters rather than contrived jokes. Like his previous efforts, The Good Girl and the underrated 2009 film Youth in Revolt, Arteta casts well-known actors against type and allows them to develop their characters while showing off previously unexplored sides of their acting range. Even with actors that are well-known to mainstream audiences, Cedar Rapids flew under the radar, quietly slipping in and out of theatres in early 2011 while mediocrity continued its reign at the box office.

Ed Helms plays Tim Lippe, an insurance agent for Brown Star Insurance in Brown Valley, Wisconsin. Tim is a simple and naïve, but good-hearted man, completely out of touch with the modern world. He is "pre-engaged" to his seventh-grade teacher Macy Vanderhei (Sigourney Weaver) and is oblivious to the world outside of Brown Valley. After a co-worker dies under mysterious circumstances, Tim's boss, Bill Krogstad (Stephen Root), sends him to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to represent the agency and claim the prestigious Two Diamonds Award. Upon his arrival, Tim befriends fellow insurance agents Ronald Wilkes (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) and the hard-partying Dean Ziegler (John C. Reilly), while finding himself smitten with Joan (Anne Heche). Yielding both hilarious and heartfelt results, Tim is introduced to situations he never imagined he'd find in Brown Valley, Wisconsin.

5.0 out of 5 stars more awesome that I could have ever imagined May 28, 2011
By H.R. #1
Format:DVD
I've been an Ed Helms fan for awhile and have wanted to see this for some time. I can say it does not disappoint. What a strong cast too with John C. Reilly and Anne Heche. Along with others that really bring it all together. I wouldn't call it a full out whacky silly movie. It's got this "indy" feel to it with just a great balance of comedy and things many can relate to. If you like those badly written mainstream comedies then this may not be for you but for those that like some "indy" in your movie then you can't go wrong.

This movie is just... under-rated. I don't think it caused much buzz at the box office - not necessarily a bad thing. I guess these off-kilter comedies that rely on 'sophisticated irony' (yeah, bet you never thought you'd see THOSE two words together) tend to be overlooked in favour of simplistic slapstick.

But hey, why am I bothering? Isn't it really worth a 1 star? I mean at first it feels like a b-grade comedy with desperate jokes that fall flat on their face, and kinda one-dimensional characters who either are stiff nerds or who just belch, fart and swear? Well, so it seems.

But with closer inspection, Cedar Rapids delivers the goods... and then some. Tim Lippe is one of this most hilarious send-ups of a social mal-adjust you'll ever see, and his on-screen chemistry with Dean Ziegler (John C Reilly) produces fireworks.

Yet, in a subtle, almost invisible way the film is actually quite moving. The characters are far deeper than they at first appear, and this film is a deep analysis of human understanding of right and wrong, with an uproariously funny main plot.

You're left with a brilliant movie that gets better with each watch, worth picking up.

5.0 out of 5 stars hilarious and warm hearted June 30, 2011

It's offbeat and may not be for everyone but this is a well written movie with a great cast. I laughed all the way through and also thought it had a warmth that could have been missing from a comedy like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cedar Rapids - Great movie! September 1, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is a great movie that saw limited release, a little over 450 theaters.

You can read the summary of the film on other reviews or here in the Amazon description. I caught it on one of its last weekends at our local art theater. I was wonderfully surprised.

"Cedar Rapids" is full of solid acting performances, great laughs and has to go down as one of the more quotable movies of all time. There are those here who have given their 1-star reviews and that's fine. But it's disappointing to know that they weren't entertained by a movie that is this entertaining.

There seems to be a new breed of gentle, almost "indy" feel films these days: "Cedar Rapids" "Everything Must Go" "Whip It" "Win Win" "Juno." Most importantly, these films are about characters, and Tim Lippe, our hero in "Cedar Rapids", is a character you will care about.

Get the movie. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny but not laugh out loud funny July 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie. It was funny but not laugh out loud funny in many places.
As one who has attended many such sales conventions, I recognized many of
the characters. The "newbie" who is led astray by the party hardy crowd but
triumphs in the end... The friendships forged by initial forced togetherness...
I recommend it.

Considering it has to do with infidelity, bribery, drugs, drinking, loutish behavior, fraud and prostitution, Cedar Rapids is really kind of a great movie. Ed Helms and John C. Reilly make this a classic!

This movie is a classic. It starts off a little slow, but then it's one barrel laugh after another. Ed Helms is at his funniest in this movie.
