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

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

    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. show more

    I watched it twice and i think it\'s a well written and acted movie. Jonah Hill always surprises me, but we all know what Marisa Tomei and John C. Riley are capable of. I give it an 8.

    A creepily unsettling story about a troubled, mother-obsessed 21-year-old son who seems to be on the threshold of becoming a serial killer. Next stop, "Cyrus 2: A Son's Revenge" And oh, by the way, it's not funny...
