Cedar Rapids

Tim Lippe (Ed Helms) is in for a shock when he leaves behind his lover (Sigourney Weaver), who was once his schoolteacher, to attend the annual American Society of Mutual Insurance gathering in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

To this small-town Wisconsin man the Iowa location seems impossibly urban and glitzy, but as long as he displays his Christian values and his capacity for good, honest hard work he's certain he can bring home the esteemed Two Diamonds award for the fourth year straight.

However, he wasn't expecting to fall in with reprobates Dean, Joan and Ronald (John C Reilly, Anne Heche and Isiah Whitlock Jr), fellow attendees whose appetites for sex, drugs, drink and general bad behaviour seriously threaten to derail Lippe's mission (and, indeed, his character).
