To call insurance agent Tim Lippe, "naïve" is a gross understatement. He's never left his small hometown. He's never stayed at a hotel. And he's never experienced anything like Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sent to represent his company at the annual insurance convention, Tim is soon distracted by three convention veterans who will show him the ropes and push his boundaries. For a guy who plays everything by the book, this convention will be anything but conventional.

Weaver's screen time is limited. Language, sex, drugs, and other
adult content make the film inappropriate for kids.

Roger EbertFull Review Good In "Cedar Rapids," a sweet comedy with a dirty mind, it is a metropolis, a sinkhole of sex, sin and high living at an annual insurance industry convention. Into this pit of depravity descends the innocent and naive Tim Lippe (Ed Helms), who never before has left his hometown of Brown Valley, Wis.
USA TodayFull Review Good Cedar Rapids is a genially rowdy comedy that stops short of poking fun at small-town Midwesterners. Like its guileless lead character, the film's heart remains steadfastly in the right place.

Tim Lippe (Ed Helms) is finally ready to go out into the world . . . but is the world ready for him? A small-town insurance agent who after 34 years in tiny Brown Valley, Wisconsin is let loose into the freewheeling, hothouse atmosphere of the annual Cedar Rapids insurance convention. Now, Tim's unassuming naiveté is about to lead him into one complicated situation after the next. These events result in unlikely friendships as he faces all the things he fears, from sex, lies and temptation . . . to the unexpected chance to become the stand-up man he's always wanted to be.
