Cedar Rapids was solid.
I guess I came in expecting too much from a small indie comedy, but from the trailers, I thought it'd be a riot. Instead it was merely a humorous take on the Andy Bernard character from The Office. While the cast is excellent, there's just something lacking. The main characters aren't very likeable until the second half. It provided good awkward humor here and there, it just lacked.
With that said though, the second half made up for it. It was pretty much hilarious after they start partying. The overall story is OK I guess, but it's not very memorable. Mostly what you'll remember this movie for is the 3 male leads. They each deliver some great lines and quotes.
I suggest seeing it if you enjoy comedies, at 86 minutes it's brief and if you don't enjoy it, it'll be over before you know it.
