No, it’s not a movie about Miley Cyrus. Cyrus stars John C. Reilly as a lonely, divorced guy that finally meets a girl (Marisa Tomei). But the catch is, she has a grown son named Cyrus (Jonah Hill). Cyrus and his mother have a weird, very close bond and he’s almost instantly jealous of John’s relationship. What follows is a subtle battle between the two over the mom.

I liked the movie. It stayed in the realm of the realistic. Although I expected it to heighten more, it didn’t go to extreme lengths to make its point. Hill plays Cyrus as a complex guy and it comes off as pretty nuanced. John C. Reilly pretty much does his John C. Reilly stuff, but it works well in this movie. Marisa Tomei is pretty awesome as well.

Matt Walsh, from the great UCB theater, is given precious little to do, but he’s good as the guy that remarries Reilly’s ex-wife. Definitely a good movie. Worth seeing, but it has kind of an arthouse feel and is a little low key. Don’t expect explosive, giant comedy, just solid work from everyone involved. I give it 8 out of 10 keggers.
