More Info:
  • Joe Morgenstern

    A dulcetly crazy, certifiably hilarious and eerily mysterious little comedy.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Cyrus cues us to expect it to go over the top, but the film never does. That may be its neatest trick

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Amuses and unnerves in equal measure. A comedy of discomfort that walks a wonderful line between reality-based emotional honesty and engaging humor, it demonstrates the good things that happen when quirky independent style combines with top-of-the-line acting skill.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Cyrus, the summer's best, most original and crazily inventive comedy, is potently funny and painfully real.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Here is a film that uses very good actors and gives them a lot of improvisational freedom to talk their way into, around and out of social discomfort. And it's not snarky. It doesn't mock these characters. It understand they have their difficulties and hopes they find a way to work things out.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Amuses and unnerves in equal measure.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Middle-aged romance can be a dicey prospect. And it gets more complicated when children are in the picture. But it gets more complex still if the "child" is actually 21, and creepily meddlesome.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Cyrus is affecting, but not in a clean, easily recognizable way. It is funny, but in a warped manner more likely to provoke unease than unbridled laughter.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    How pleasant to report, then, that a new romantic comedy -- small, smart, funny, tender and dear -- should emerge from a pair of filmmaking brothers still in their 30s and with a distinct indie film pedigree that informs, while not dominating, their work.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    There's no way to make this a feel-good movie, and admirably the Duplass brothers don't try. Cyrus finds its humor in dark places, through characters bringing out the worst in each other.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    There's an original comic temperament at work here, and that's rare.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    The filmmakers -- mumblecore moguls, if such a thing can be said to exist -- prefer a squirmy kind of comedy that's all about the awkward situations real people find themselves in. And with these performers, the vibe stays down-to-earth and almost entirely unpredictable.

    NPR Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The comedy of discomfort that runs through Cyrus is often about several things at once. But the most prevalent emotion in this quirky yet genuine movie is the awkwardness that comes with trying to fit into someone else's life.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Hughes

    The Duplass brothers enter the mainstream with a touching, original and supremely funny film, whose improvisational style sets it apart from other comedies, and marks the emergence of two major new talents. Great performances, too.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Although Jonah Hill has been sweetly, profanely funny in such films as "Superbad" and "Get Him to the Greek," in Cyrus he's a revelation.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Fear

    Neither Reilly nor Tomei have ever seemed so effortlessly funny, and whoever thought to cast one of Judd Apatow's regulars as a dysfunctional, disturbed manchild should be dubbed a genius.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    An enjoyably off-kilter romantic comedy with a touch of madcap farce and just a hint of darkness. Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    A freakishly engrossing black comedy about excessively mothered men and the women who enable them.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    The scariest romantic comedy of the year.

    Time Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    As the furiously passive-aggressive title character, Jonah Hill delivers a craftier comic performance than anything in his box-office hits (Superbad, Get Him to the Greek), but what really elevates the story above its shticky premise is the combined neuroses of all three characters.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    Hill cuts a hilariously adversarial figure.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    It's a shrewd, poignant drama disguised as a comedy.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill give such wonderfully satisfying, full-blooded performances in Cyrus that it seems almost churlish to wish this creepy little Oedipal comedy were a little more well-thought-out, and handled its wilder shifts in tone with more finesse.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Don't be fooled by the casual style. There is nothing casual about these emotions, or about the talent of these two filmmakers.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Even at its most troubling, Cyrus is powered by a deep vein of humanism, one that offers hope to even the weirdest among us.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The combination of a flexible, funny cast, an amusing situation and a style of movie-making that embraces every happy, nasty accident make this if not the funniest, then certainly the most uncomfortable comedy of the summer.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Like the recent "Greenberg," Cyrus is not the jokey, polished production you would expect from its Hollywood cast and LA setting, but audiences who are comfortable with discomfort should find it "funny."

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Think of Cyrus as the Duplasses for the masses, as the keenly observant sibs upgrade their scrappy, relationship-based formula to work with movie stars and a Fox Searchlight-size budget without sacrificing the raw, naturalistic feel of their first two features, "The Puffy Chair" and "Baghead."

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Cyrus is very funny, and Keener's supporting work as John's divorced ex also amuses. A pat conclusion nevertheless negates the strength of the restive narrative that precedes it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Duane Byrge

    Insightful but ultimately ponderous entertainment.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Cyrus is more finely tuned than their earlier movies ("The Puffy Chair," "Baghead"), but it shares a similar, almost aggressive lack of ambition. John doesn't work hard and neither do the Duplasses, who don't want their audiences to break a sweat either. That's too bad, because Cyrus is more interesting and fun when you're recoiling at the effrontery of its comedy and not its conventionality.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Mining the incest prohibition for laughs in what's essentially a light romantic comedy is a bold move, and for the first two-thirds of the movie, it works surprisingly well. But as long as the Duplasses are willing to go there, I can't help but wish they'd gone a little further.

    Slate Full Review
  • John DeVore

    At the very least, Cyrus forces one of these man-children to face a younger version of himself, and find a grown-up compromise.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    The emotional geometry is familiar enough to be credible yet odd enough to be creepy.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Mark Keizer

    Those unfamiliar with the Duplass' previous movies won't realize what's missing; they'll just enjoy the earthy angst, edgy laughs and off-kilter casting of Jonah Hill.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • David Denby

    The Duplasses' sensitivity, which is genuine, yields too much tepid relationship-speak, and Marisa Tomei, one of the most appealing actresses in Hollywood, is left with little to play.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Once again with the Duplasses, there just isn't enough of anything: not enough funny lines, not enough variation of mood, not enough plot. If these guys were students, Cyrus might merit a "promising." But this is their third movie. It's time for them to stop turning in first drafts.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    It still has a long way to go before the term Mumblecore (which sounds like a Harry Potter major at Hogwart's) can be confused with the term Class Act.
