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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 13, 2013
a sweet, modest, unremarkable film, propped up by seasoned actors playing quirky and "real."
February 22, 2012
The potentially one-joke premise is given depth, complexity, darkness and pathos by the offbeat execution and the honest performances.
August 15, 2011
A man battles with his girlfriend's son in this realistic, understated comedy filled with the awkwardness of real life.
June 30, 2011
... 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.
February 1, 2011
An amazing human drama played out by actors at the peak of their profession: and who could want more than that?

January 28, 2011
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
January 25, 2011
...a well-acted yet wholly uninvolving (and downright unconvincing) piece of work.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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
December 23, 2010
...this muted farce benefits from the pitch-perfect performances of its cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 21, 2010
... 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.
December 9, 2010
The acting is superb by all three main characters, especially Jonah Hill, who is really the key character in this film.
Full Review | Original Score: A
December 5, 2010
Lacks energy and seems more creepy than funny.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 28, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 15, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 13, 2010
Benefits from the cast teasing out the hurt and humanity from co-dependency's emotional battlefield.
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
September 10, 2010
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?
