Movie Review from

Here’s an idea for a high-concept comedy, tailor-made to fit Adam Sandler’s new middle-aged career phase. He’d play a down-on-his-luck divorcé whose relationship with the woman of his dreams is stymied by her slightly twisted grown-up son. With a team of scriptwriters and polishers, and maybe a producer credit for Judd Apatow, it would have all the makings of a cookie-cutter Hollywood comedy, somewhere between 2008’s Step Brothers and 1997’s Addicted To Love.

Movie Review from

Most romcoms mount barriers to love’s inevitable triumph.

The third film from mumblecore men Jay and Mark Duplass follows suit with a wickedly playful twist: the bar to romance between depressed fortysomething John (John C. Reilly) and the kindly, sexy Molly (Marisa Tomei) is her rotund 21-year-old son Cyrus (Jonah Hill), a creepily smirking momma’s man with passive-aggressive tendencies.

Slobby Cyrus is just one of many genre twists here. The opening mixes gross-out with cringe comedy, as John is caught masturbating by ex-wife Jamie (Catherine Keener).

Movie Review from

The Duplass brothers, veterans of the lo-fi indie movement known as mumblecore, go “mainstream” here, which means studio backing and a vaguely recognisable cast. But whatever indie values they’ve brought with them, this amiable but undernourished romcom is unlikely to rock the system to its foundations, or even give it a slight wobble. John C Reilly and Marisa Tomei are two second-timers enjoying the novelty of their new love, but the spanner in their works is Tomei’s 21-year-old son Cyrus, played by Jonah Hill.

Mumblecore goes mainstream! It’s been on the cards for a while now – last year’s Apatow-goes-improv male-bonding comedy ‘Humpday’ came close to breaking out of the indie ghetto – but ‘Cyrus’ marks the point when this long-percolating DIY hipster subgenre, famed for its naturalistic dialogue, awkward pauses and painfully extended camera takes, finally hits the big time.

It’s largely down to the cast: John C Reilly plays John, a divorced schlub who thinks he’s hit the jackpot when he successfully hits on foxy singleton Molly (Marisa Tomei) at a swanky LA party.

Another entry in the funcomfortable genre of awkward comedy, this one would make a great anti-nice double feature with the Ben Stiller-starring Greenberg. The same rules apply: artfully “inept” handheld camerawork, intentionally go-nowhere dialogue that somehow still manages to cut through to the heart of what’s eating at the people on screen, and a determination to avoid movie-like catharsis. But, like all good pained comic characters, their misery is funny to us if not to them–and that’s just how it should be.
