"[S]weet...often charming....What counts is how Mr. Cera's face, much like that of a silent-screen actor, conveys sincerity and a sense of wonder..."New York Times "Cera's casual-seeming skill and paradoxically reticent showmanship is routinely taken for granted."Los Angeles Times "Nick is played with intellectual vigor and youthful angst by Michael Cera....It's a pleasant surprise to see the engaging, soft-spoken star of SUPERBAD and JUNO stretch and play a devil-may-care slimeball."USA Today 3 stars out of 4 -- "[It's Cera's] self-abasing modesty that makes the movie work."Chicago Sun-Times "[A]n endearing coming-of-age comedy....[Mr. Cera's] inhibitions are translucent, rather than opaque; directly behind them, intelligence seethes and passion smolders."Wall Street Journal 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a fun piece....Fred Willard's reliably great as an ultra-leftist neighbor and Justin Long stands out..."Box Office "[T]he casting is a perfect fit: Cera's expertise in playing the moon-faced aspirant is largely derived from the bewilderment he seems to radiate at being caught out of his time..."Movieline "[A] broad, ambitious, agreeably wordy satire in the vein of Terry Southern or A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES." -- Grade: B-A.V. Club 3 stars out of 5 -- "Cera manages to bring the extra something that makes this an unexpectedly appealing movie for both genders."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "Director Miguel Arteta punches the plot -- essentially, a series of increasingly absurd sketches -- along, and there's excellent, if brief, turns from Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, M Emmet Walsh and Fred Willard."Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "Cera gives his most nuanced performance to date, casually slipping from trademark nervy cuteness into a rather delicious, new thin-lipped misanthropy."Empire "[T]he material makes a good fit for the mordant gaze of director Miguel Arteta....Arteta stages some uproariously funny set pieces..."Sight and Sound62.04108

"...Jennifer Aniston gives a revelatory performance..." Movieline's Hollywood Life "...This is smart, well-crafted stuff..." Premiere "...One of the year's best films....The extraordinary quality of White's script and Arteta's direction lifts the meticulously cast actors to the heights of their abilities..."Los Angeles Times "...A sharp-tongued, subtly nuanced tragicomedy....Aniston effectively exudes emptiness and ennui....Viewers will be grateful to have stumbled on this darkly comic and well-told story..." USA Today "...It's a winner....Ms. Aniston provides a gentle, thoughtful performance....A ripe, daffy comedy about the turbulent mixture of depression and jealousy..." New York Times "...THE GOOD GIRL ferrets out subtle comedy in the bleakest of set-ups. While the tone of the movie is sincere and socially aware....An appealing film..." Sight and Sound "Jennifer Aniston gives an austere, impeccable performance....Every character is drawn sharply, yet never uncharitably."Wall Street Journal61.3609

3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] sweet comedy with a dirty mind....CEDAR RAPIDS has something of the same spirit of FARGO in its approach to the earnest natures of its small-towners."Chicago Sun-Times "This is a Frank Capra-meets-Judd Apatow comedy with a sweetness-laced ribaldry....REILLY is over-the-top hilarious, and Helms builds on the likability he exuded in THE HANGOVER..."USA Today "There is something to be said for allowing yourself simple pleasures like the shtick-y sweetness of CEDAR RAPIDS....[Helms] has put a polish on the persona, layering an old-fashioned virtues and an irrepressible optimism that is hard to resist."Los Angeles Times "The main thing about CEDAR RAPIDS is that it makes you laugh -- often and out loud..."Wall Street Journal "Reilly has rarely been funnier as a braying, lovably vulgar life-of-the-party type, and Heche emerges from the Hollywood wilderness with a wry, immensely appealing performance." -- Grade: BA.V. Club "[W]hile Mr. Arteta likes a dirty joke as much as the next comic director, because those laughs burble up from characters whose raucousness comes from an honest grappling with life's absurdities, the jokes sing as well as zing."New York Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "Helms is warm and likable and makes for a great nerd hero with his aw-shucks personality and surprised facial expressions. Reilly delivers another one of his trademark 'nutty pal' performances that continue to win him fans."Box Office 3 stars out of 4 -- "CEDAR RAPIDS is both hilarious and heartfelt. It's also powered by a dream cast, led by the outstanding Helms."Rolling Stone "The film's overarching comedic goal is a prolonged sense of discomfort that, at its high points, will make you cringe and snicker in equal measure."Film Comment 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hanks to Helms it's never uncomfortable to watch....It's also worth staying for the end credits -- to see Reilly perform a party trick..."Total Film "[With] uniformly entertaining performances....Arteta makes light and earthy work out of it."Sight and Sound0.2612298
