Tim Lippe (Ed Helms "The Hangover") was the guy people always thought would go places
but then he just ... didn't. He's been living in the very sleepy Brown
Valley, Wisconsin his whole life, still "pre-engaged" to his 7th grade
teacher Millie Vanderhei (Sigourney Weaver "Alien"), while selling insurance to protect
other people's dreams. But now, Tim's stalled life is about to get a
kick-start because, for the first time in his 34 years, he's headed to a
"major" metropolis - Cedar Rapids, Iowa - where he must try to save his
company at a do-or-die insurance convention that, for him, will be
From the minute he checks into his hotel with
his ancient American Tourister and cummerbund money-belt, it's clear Tim
has no idea how the modern world really works. He is soon smitten with
seductive Nebraskan insurance agent Joan (Anne Heche "Wag the Dog") and awed by his
experienced roommates, the straight-shooting Wilkes (Isiah Whitlock Jr. "She Hates Me") and
the suspicious Zeigler (John C. Reilly "Chicago")
While there's nothing surprising about the plot, the
characters are endearing and though not constantly funny, they're
at least consistently funny. The movie also has the benefit of adult
characters, rather than teenagers. Though they may act like crazy college students, in their quiet
moments, these are grown-ups with grown-up problems (divorce,
loneliness, unsatisfying marriages, etc.). Overall, Cedar Rapids, directed by Miguel Arteta ("Youth in Revolt") has
enough laughs and charm to insure that you'll be happily entertained for nearly an hour and a half.
