Product Description

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.


Mumblecore auteurs the Duplass brothers (Baghead, The Puffy Chair) dip their toes in the precarious waters of Hollywood by casting well-known actors in Cyrus. But their devotion to clumsy, uncomfortable people remains: John (John C. Reilly, Step Brothers) has barely left his apartment in the seven years since Jamie (Catherine Keener, Lovely & Amazing) divorced him, so Jamie demands he come to a party--where, miraculously, he meets Molly (Marisa Tomei, The Wrestler), who seems like the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately, Molly comes with some baggage: her 22-year-old son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill, Superbad). To say Molly and Cyrus are close is an understatement, and John finds himself in a battle of wills with Molly as the prize. The Duplass brothers seek a kind of cinematic simplicity--to call it purity would be too highbrow for these aggressively pedestrian filmmakers--and when it works, it brings the viewer in intimate contact with life in its ordinary, essential glory. When it doesn't work, it's just dull. Despite its flatfooted plot, Cyrus works pretty well. The higher caliber of the cast helps--Reilly, Tomei, Hill, and Keener are all excellent, and much of the movie is genuinely funny. Don't expect elegance, but sometimes, something plain can please. --Bret Fetzer

    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.

    *** 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.

    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!

    Why 4 stars for a 3 star movie? Because it is worth it. I have not written a movie review before. I know, it shows. I usually go strait to the 3 star reviews here on Amazon. I think they are more accurate. No hype, no plants, no dumb 1 star reviewing like, hey my case was cracked when it arrived so 1 star. You know the type. So. I am writing this review because of all the 1 star reviews. Read them. They are actually pretty factual. I agree with several of them that I just read. Yes, the cinematography is just awful. Yes I wanted to turn it off. I must add I wanted to give up several times. Yes I don’t think it is funny and wonder why it is billed as a comedy. The person who lent me the movie thinks it is funny. It’s not. What it is, is, it’s a good movie. I don’t know what the director and the script writer had intended for the audience to experience watching this movie. If it is what I think it is, they were very successful. I was ho hum about this movie. Till the end. Then I realized I had just watched a very good movie. The acting was good. They portrayed the characters very well. The story is there and you are entertained. The movement of the camera. It’s some new style that has come about and I’m not happy with it. It more annoying to me in concert videos where i want to watch the band play and the camera man has had one to many pills of speed and is all over the place. Deal with the camera work and enjoy this movie. See if you realize at the end that 1, it is good and 2, John C Reilly does a fine job with his part. They all do.
