Cyrus is a comedy about a recently divorced guy who meets the women of his dreams but then meets her overprotective son.

This has and all star comedy cast of John C Reilly, Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill.

The film started off as an amusing comedy as the 2 meet but as the film goes on it gets stranger and stranger with the storyline not really progressing in any true direction. This isn't helped by a frankly dreadful performance from Jonah Hill despite John C Reilly's best attempts to amuse the viewers it just quite simply is not funny enough to be a comedy hit as I was personally perplexed at what an earth was happening and just how strange this whole film was.

This seemed a rushed film with a shabby script hoping a few well known actors along with Marisa Tomei would bring enough viewers however the film itself I quite simply found boring and lost my concentration a number of times.

Overall other than the odd snigger this just wasn't funny enough to make it due to its poor script and performances from some of the actors leading to this becoming a comedy flop in my books. The potential was possibly there but the effort certainly was not.

This gets a rating of 4/10 from me wouldn't recommend it to anyone quite frankly is an hour and a half I'll never get back.

Hope you find this useful please feedback!
