I don't understand one iota the negative reviews of this film. It's simple, fun & hilarious. And one of John C. Reilly's best roles. He is comedic gold and his lines are just as quotable as anything I can think of. Genius film with a great mood to it. And it gets better with multiple viewings. Don't think twice. This film is awesome.

The idea is fine - a shy underachieving insurance salesman goes to a convention in the big city (of Cedar Rapids?). But I found the movie painful to watch.

Funny, likeable, and it doesn't drag or make you cringe when it's not being funny. Though it does lean a little too heavily on clichÚ, especially "dumb rube in the big city". Helms is kind of a non-entity, especially as a lead, but he's surrounded with interesting character actors, so it doesn't really matter.

Cedar Rapids is short on laughs, but in the end it is elevated by its amount of heart.

one of the worst movies Maries ever picked..... and one of the worst movies I've seen in a while.... made Dinner for Schmucks look like The 40-Year-Old Virgin... lets see - Ed Helms sucked... John C. Reilly blew... Anne Heche was, uh, herself... lots of f*@ktastic cameos: Red from That 70's Show, Maeby from Arrested Development, Rob Corddry, & that Time Warner Cable commercial/Kurt's Dad from Glee guy.....

The cast and characters are riveting and while there is much to laugh over alongside the growth of the characters it comes alongside some of the crudest, foul, drunken, drugged and sexualized scripts you can squeeze into an insurance convention.

Flawed, certainly, but refreshing and fun with a great performance from John C. Reilly. Full review later.

Effin' hilarious. You should definitely think about adding this gem to your Netflix queue. :)

Ample raunch, Helms' salt-of-the-earth trustworthiness, and overwhelming sweetness give Cedar Rapids enough leg to still overcome its formulaic tendencies.

Has a great blend of quirkiness without being in-your-face-quirky, and is just a hilarious Helms/Reilly vehicle. Plus it has heart if you're into that.

Bland garbage of cosmic proportions, couldn't force myself to watch this till the end. Please save your time and look for something else. not worth trading 2 hours for it.

A great performance from Ed Helms in a familiar role, "Cedar Rapids" unfortunately suffers from a tonally complex screenplay and an uninteresting plot.

This comedy works because Ed Helms's milk-toast character never feels like a put on. We believe he's actually the kind of guy who would say '"Gosh Darn it" instead of God Damn it .

This movie is deadpan and very funny. It has some wry insights into the world and its ways, despite the inclusion of a host of clich├ęs. It's a rarity, an honest and enjoyable comedy.

I tried to watch this on two seperate occasions but it's way too boring. Maybe it gets better but I can't watch past 30 minutes.

Quirky, dry, at times vulgar, but this story of a coming-of-age insurance salesman (yes...I wrote that) played by the seemingly typecast Ed Helms as a naive, middle-aged man learning about love and business while trying to maintain his integrity and heart-of-gold. About as unreal as it gets, the story is adorable and sweet with well-written characters played by a talented ensemble including John C. Reilly, Isiah Whitlock and Anne Heche. This threesome embraces young-at-heart Tim Lippe while also learning a bit about themselves and the lives they've allowed themselves to get sucked into as tacky insurance salespeople. The result is a warped moral and an unlikely happy ending.

Cedar Rapids is just hilarious. With all these Insurance competitions, and does it in a way of comedy with Helms and Reilly in it, I was just having fun. I was thinking this film could have been more better. A much better second half could possibly hits its spot. But overall its a very good and recommended comedy flick offered by Arteta.

Fails to live up to the sum of its parts. not sure why any studio would fight to make this story.

The laughs were few and far between, but actually got better towards the end. An average comedy with some noteworthy scenes.
