Cedar Rapids

Terrified of leaving his tiny town for the first time, sheltered insurance salesman Tim (Ed Helms) nervously sets out for the bright lights of bustling Cedar Rapids, where he attends a chaotic insurance convention and learns how to survive in the real world. Miguel Arteta directs this delightful fish-out-of-water comedy that also features Sigourney Weaver, Rob Corddry, John C. Reilly and Anne Heche.

Ed Helms should never stop singing. I love all his nerdy songs. And in “Cedar Rapids” he belted out the perfect Christmas tune about insurance.

There were other really funny moments in this movie about a sheltered insurance salesman who goes to a conference in the big city – Cedar Rapids. He makes new friends, including the bad boy of insurance, John C. Reilly, and a hooker.

Even though I did really like this movie, I laughed a lot, cared about the characters, and was interested the whole way through, I kind of expected more. It got such good reviews and won film fest awards. So I thought I was in for more than a solid comedy.

  1. I used to live not far from Cedar Rapids….unfortunately this one is pretty close to how it is living in the big bad midwest.
