    John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill and Oscar® Winner Marisa Tomei star in this quirky, hilarious story about love, family and cutting the cord. Not-so-recently divorced John (Reilly) thinks he’s finally found the perfect woman when he meets the sweet and sexy Molly (Tomei). There’s just one problem – Molly’s son Cyrus (Hill) clings to his mom like lint on a T-shirt, and he’s not about to let another man come between them. It’s one hysterically awkward moment after another as John and Cyrus fight for the right to be Molly’s #1 man.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Deft Blend of Comedy and Drama January 8, 2011
    Format:DVD
    A film starring John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill is going to attract a certain audience...And that is not the correct audience for this film. While Reilly is an accomplished dramatic actor, he's become well-known for appearing in successful comedies lately; Hill is best-known for his work in the Apatow-cannon. Cyrus is the type of film the average moviegoer dismisses as "too weird" or "not funny," which both miss the point entirely. To use a term I'm not fond of, Cyrus is a "dramedy," that seamlessly blends both comedy and drama avoiding cheap punchlines and dramatic, emotional cues. If you think Step Brothers is the "best movie ever" and you're expecting typical Jonah Hill-fare, this is not your movie. If you watch it with an open mind, you'll find it quite rewarding.

    John C. Reilly plays John, still wallowing in loneliness seven years after his divorce. Now, his ex-wife Jamie (Catherine Keener) is getting re-married and she takes John to a party in the hope that he'll find himself a girlfriend. He does, in the form of a beautiful woman named Molly (Marisa Tomei). When John becomes curious about Molly's secretive nature he follows her home and meets her 21-year-old son Cyrus (Hill). Cyrus comes off a bit weird, but friendly but John notices the relationship between Molly and Cyrus is rather unconventional; they share a close bond that borders on the near incestuous. John becomes suspicious of Cyrus' motives very quickly, but finds himself in a rut not wanting to damage his new relationship with Molly.

    The film moves at a very quick pace and boasts a solid script although writer/directors Jay & Mark Duplass do allow their actors a lot of room for improvisation.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Paean to the Passive Aggressive January 26, 2011
    Format:DVD
    *** This review may contain spoilers ***

    No, I don't usually like movies that feature quite a bit of improvisation and jerky cinematography. Nonetheless, 'Cyrus' has enough crazy moments in it, that it's actually kind of funny. This is not your usual laugh out loud comedy. Rather, it's a farce where we're asked to laugh at (not with) a set of sharply defined, passive-aggressive character types.

    A central characteristic of the passive-aggressive personality type is that he/she rarely is able to express anger in a direct, forceful way. Instead, the anger is expressed in a series of short, aggressive bursts and passive retreats. The passive aggressive personality lives in a pressure cooker and inevitably must end up exploding. But once the explosion is over, they will end up where they started: in the same passive aggressive holding pattern, leading nowhere. Passive aggressives can also be thought of as belonging to the larger family of masochists who enjoy inflicting pain on themselves by not really letting go of their anger--by the same token, they appear to enjoy engaging in minor skirmishes, where they may win a minor battle or two but never can truly claim victory in an 'all out war'.

    At the outset of 'Cyrus', we see that we're dealing with some very screwed up passive aggressive types. John's ex-wife, Jamie, aggressively enters his house without telling him and then catches him masturbating. At first, her reaction is normal, heading for the door, shrieking with great embarrassment after catching him in the act. But after listening to his lame explanation that he had "jock itch", Jamie passively tells him she didn't see anything and the confrontation dies.

    If the characters in Cyrus were merely neurotic losers, the film wouldn't be very funny.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise January 2, 2011
    By adiadv
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    If you decide to watch this movie based solely on expectations from the noteworthy cast because of their previous roles in mainstream comedy hits, you might be disappointed. This is not slapstick, in-your-face humor that will make almost everyone laugh - and therein lies the beauty of it for me! It wasn't at all what I was expecting to see when I rented it.

    The relationship between Molly (Marisa Tomei) and Cyrus (Jonah Hill) - which consistently straddles the line between beautiful and disturbing - is rattled by the introduction of John (John C. Reilly) into their lives. The issues that arise are the crux of the humorous conflict that drives the story.

    It bounces back and forth between the feel of a quirky romantic comedy, a darkly humorous satire and a low-key drama. It all combines to make a subtly played-out, ludicrous and well-acted tale. I loved it!

    1.0 out of 5 stars I rarely turn a movie off... October 27, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    I rarely turn a movie off but I had to on this one. This movie had potential but it was just not funny. Kept waiting for the funny to break out but it never happened. Oh, yah, who the hell shot this movie? The constant fast zooms was so obnoxious. Seemed amateurish. Highly distracting.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Expected a comedy, got a dull drama... March 29, 2013
    Format:DVD
    A lonely man meets a lonely woman. Nice, except the lonely woman lives with her manipulative 22 year old son. Tension, conflict, then what would you expect?

    No one is really likable in this movie. Yada yada yada.

    Expected more laughter out of this. Too much drama. Was advertised as a comedy. Really not very entertaining.
    Not the worst movie I ever saw but definitely on the list
