      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While it may strike some viewers as slight, Cyrus is a successful hybrid of mainstream production values and the mumblecore ideals of directors Jay and Mark Duplass.

      Peter G Those viewers expecting a cookie cutter relationship comedy/drama might be disappointed since the film never tries to hint where these characters fates are headed. The performances are exceptional. I always enjoy watching John C. Reilly's work & here he comes through with his most remarkable performance, IMO, since CHICAGO. Much more of a subtle characterization than he sometimes presents. The same holds true for the rest of the cast & Jonah Hill as the mother obsessed son manages to be creepy & sympathetic at the same time. Marisa Tomei & Catherine Keener are interesting as usual. The best aspect of this somewhat dark comedy is that the outcome of the mother/son/boyfriend interaction is realistically played & unpredictable so this ambiguity will not please every audience member. But, that, for me, makes this film all that much more involving & worth experiencing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review Cody C The audience score is unfair. Slow burn but a hell of a movie. Stick through it! It's a unique comedy that deserves love. Amazing job by the entire cast. Deserves a cult following. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/25/23 Full Review Mal T I love the main actors in this movie and couldn't believe I hadn't seen it yet. It was a waste of time. The storyline was much too simple. In addition, at one point there was an affair briefly pictured and then that never materialized or incorporated in the story. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review Cody D I came across this movie for the first time on July 10,2023 and at first I wondered how is it that I haven't seen a movie with the 2 stars in a film together. After about 45 min I stopped wondering why and I understood why it wasn't advertised hardly at all or atleast enough to where I just found out about it. Don't waste your time watching this film it's not a comedy just awkward and weird. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Eric F A very authentic movie that has some funny parts. I feared a paint by numbers romantic comedy or something that was dumb, but this was neither. I was happily surprised. Don't watch if you want a roller coaster or something artsy that's hard to follow. Perfect if you want something entertaining and chill. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Expected a goofy movie like Step Brothers but it was more drama related than comedic.

      David Zuckerman Film Comment Magazine a sweet, modest, unremarkable film, propped up by seasoned actors playing quirky and "real." Nov 13, 2013 Full Review Jason Bailey DVDTalk.com The potentially one-joke premise is given depth, complexity, darkness and pathos by the offbeat execution and the honest performances. Feb 22, 2012 Full Review Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard Cast and crew seem committed to making a simple point: "unhealthily close" relationships can be enriching. And the result is a movie that feels both small and deep. Rated: 4/5 Sep 15, 2010 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Cyrus has an uncomfortable effect that ultimately peels back to reveal a sensitive and insightful film Rated: 3/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Cyrus is so spontaneous that it sometimes gives the uncomfortable feeling of digging through foreign lives with the cameras complicity. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 19, 2022 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The drama replaces the humor a little too often, creating a more serious, gloomily realistic atmosphere that goes against the initial comedic roots.
