Indie comedy written and directed by the Duplass brothers. Seven years after splitting up with his wife Jamie (Catherine Keener), dejected Los Angeles divorcee John (John C. Reilly) is still single and has all but given up on the idea of meeting somone new. But then out of the blue he meets the beautiful, spirited and single Molly (Marisa Tomei). Unfortunately, it isn't until after he has fallen head over heels in love with her that he discovers there is a major catch: her seriously peculiar and very dependent 20-something son Cyrus (Jonah Hill) - who, it becomes startlingly apparent, is far from ready to share his beloved mother with another 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 calibre 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

On the cover it is described by EMPIRE as "supremely funny..." Yes there are some smile to yourself moments but certainly not in terms of holding your sides funny.
John c reilly as expected, gives the protagonist of the movie human depth and like ability.
Forget the fact that Jonah hill is best known for roles where he plays a foulmouth baffoon, as his character in this movie is completely straight and alittle tragic without a wisecrack in sight, and is more brilliant for it.
Marisa Tomei is brilliant as the put upon mother trying to please everyone and adjusting to her new role as someone's steady girlfriend.
Overall this is a sweet, realistic movie about the complex dynamic of a dysfunctional family unit and learning to change.
After watching the trailer for this film, I expected a light hearted, easy to watch comedy. Starring, Jonah Hill (Knocked up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) as`Cyrus`, a twenty something who lives at home with his mother becomes incredibly jealous of his mother`s new boyfriend, played by John.C Reily (Step brothers), the comedy genre was definately the selling point for me.
Both actors delivered impeccable comedic timing, with just enough awkwardness, sarcasm and quirky lines to probe laughter throughout the film. However, my expectation of an up beat, silly story that the two are usually cast in was soon challenged. Deep themes including, age, family, divorce and personal identity added a dark edge to the film. This film depicted a strong mother and son relationship for all to empathise with. The underlying theme of letting go and achieving balance gave this romantic comedy a deeper edge.
Overall, the happy ending, laugh a minute comedy and talented cast made this an enjoyable watch, with added meaning and sentiment.
It is more of a gentle comedy with a family drama edge to it and also some very realistic glances into the psyche of people involved in this situation. the jealous of mum's new boyfriend kid, the mum who doesn't want to upset her son and the awkward new guy who's afraid of new girlfriend's kid. they were all well observed characters.
i'm really into the "mumblecore" movement, of which the guys who made this film are a part. if you didn't like this you will HATE their other films! this is an attempt to make a mumblecore style film but with more of a linear plot and generally more going on. for me it is very successful in this. really enjoyed it.

Excellent, light and frank comedy. Well acted and written.
Recommended. Yes, it could have gone a bit further, and capitalised on the idea more, but then it would
