Cyrus - Movie Review

Cyrus (R) 92 minutes B+
Creepy man-child, depressed divorcee battle it out in Cyrus

Starring John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei, Catherine Keener, Matt Walsh, and Katie Aselton

John (John C. Reilly) is a freelance editor who has been depressed and uninspired since his wife divorced him seven years ago. But his luck begins to change when he meets a beautiful, curly haired brunette named Molly (Marisa Tomei). Molly is divine, the woman of John's dreams and she also comes with baggage; a creepy 21 year-old man-child (Jonah Hill).

Dark humor, subtle comedy and excellent cast. Hill is becoming a comedic tour de force, while Reilly, Keener and Tomei are always worth the price of admission. Recommended!
