It is not too often movies are in or about Iowa. I was thrilled to learn about this movie that not only fictionally takes place in an Iowa city but also chose to use the city's name as the title! Cedar Rapids was devastated by floods in 2008 and I think it is great to give the town some exposure. I will definitely be seeing this film not only because I am an Iowan, but because I think it looks pretty darn funny and has a really great cast lead by Ed Helms and John C. Reilly.
Fun Facts about Cedar Rapids: It was the birthplace of Elijah Wood and Ashton Kutcher grew up a few miles outside of Cedar Rapids. Ashton's family still lives there and he frequently visits the area.
