  • Excerpt: “Cyrus” isn’t very funny. Which is weird, since it’s being marketed as the latest – and greatest – outrageous comedy with “funny” stars like John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill . The folks at Fox Searchlight seem to think that their production of this Duplass Brothers feature is “Stepbrothers 2: Rise of...

Rock! Shock! Pop!

  • Summary: A well-made movie with a basic plot is carried solely on the performances. All players keep the movie going, are realistic enough to care about, quirky enough to be interesting, but not so over the top as to be a turn off.

Cyrus (2010)

  • Conclusion: Don't be fooled by the casting; Cyrus is less of an outright comedy than a quiet, idiosyncratic drama about broken characters trying to sort out their complicated lives. That said, it is funny—in a restrained, deliciously uncomfortable way.

  • Summary: 'Cyrus' may feel like it doesn't reach a complete catharsis at the end, but what relationships due? They always leave us wanting more (if they were good ones) and no matter how long we live and love someone, nothing is ever tied up into a perfect conclusion.

  • Excerpt: Cyrus is a seriously funny film. Now, normally, you shouldn�t need to be told that a film is funny � it should be self-evident, and certainly as far as Cyrus is concerned, the comedic potential of the film is abundantly clear from the trailer and from an outline of the situation � but, it seems to...

  • Excerpt: The plot of the Duplass’ brothers new film, Cyrus , is not exactly original. The idea of having a son go to war with his mother’s new boyfriend has been seen many times and is, frankly, a tired dynamic. Yet they pull it off anyway.

AV Club
17 June 2010
  • Excerpt: The writing-directing brother act of Jay and Mark Duplass were a breath of fresh air when they emerged from the micro-budget indie-film movement five years ago, largely because their semi-improvised slacker comedies The Puffy Chair and Baghead actually aimed to entertain, not just to document the...

  • Summary: On paper, Cyrus looks like a bit of a Sundance-baiting exercise. In one corner are the Duplass brothers, "mumblecore" filmmakers and in the other a cast that includes John C. Reilly, Catherine Keener and Marisa Tomei.

Cyrus (2010)

Filmofiel
26 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Als je ‘quirky’ op Wikipedia opzoekt, dan krijg je een korte uitleg van dit bijvoeglijk naamwoord, maar je zou net zo goed een verwijzing naar Cyrus kunnen krijgen, een aparte ‘indie comedy’ met John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei, Catherine Keener en in de titelrol Jonah Hill.
