It offers you a look at a totally dysfunctional relationship that allows you to look at the relationships in your own life and breathe a sigh of relief.

Film Comment Magazine

a sweet, modest, unremarkable film, propped up by seasoned actors playing quirky and "real."
Jason Bailey
February 22, 2012
The potentially one-joke premise is given depth, complexity, darkness and pathos by the offbeat execution and the honest performances.
Sarah Sluis
Film Journal International
August 15, 2011
A man battles with his girlfriend's son in this realistic, understated comedy filled with the awkwardness of real life.
Ed Whitfield

... A very fine comic-psychodrama that eschews prat falls and flippancy for a more intimately realist and considered rendering of manchild madness and its antecedents.

An amazing human drama played out by actors at the peak of their profession: and who could want more than that?

The visual style transcends lyricism to achieve a kind of free-verse poetry, aided in large part by awe-inspiring mash-ups of montage and voice-overs

...a well-acted yet wholly uninvolving (and downright unconvincing) piece of work.

Cyrus will appeal to the same audiences that have admired the Mumblecore directors and their work, even though it's more polished.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

...this muted farce benefits from the pitch-perfect performances of its cast.

... has the dubious distinction of being the first mumblecore comedy to come out of a major studio, complete with an A-list cast.

A totally cringe-inducing movie. Stay away from it unless you enjoy gawking at severely damaged personalities.

The acting is superb by all three main characters, especially Jonah Hill, who is really the key character in this film.

Lacks energy and seems more creepy than funny.

Cred points are on offer from the film's observational/improvisational style that bros Duplass bring along with them, but they've neglected the most important part - making the film interesting.

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.

Benefits from the cast teasing out the hurt and humanity from co-dependency's emotional battlefield.
Marc Lee
Daily Telegraph (UK)
September 11, 2010
It's funny, but edgy, too: you feel as if something very bad could happen at any moment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Rooting awkward chuckles in freaky family ties, the Duplasses then spin our sniggers by planting parallels between John and Cyrus. Just who's the biggest man-child?
