Jonah Hill's Sundance comedy Cyrus gets a trailer

01.22.2010

If I were going to Sundance this year, one of the films I'd be most looking forward to is the John C. Reilly/Jonah Hill comedy CYRUS. Directed by Mark and Jay Duplass, the film stars Reilly as a lonely guy who falls in love with the seemingly perfect woman (Marisa Tomei) only to find that she has a grown son (Hill) who's a bit strange.

The trailer for CYRUS is online today and it's not quite as funny as I expected it to be. I guess the mistake is going in thinking this will be like STEP BROTHERS 2 or something when it's something else entirely. From what I understand, even though the film is comedic, it's not entirely a comedy. What do you think? Our man Chris Bumbray is in Sundance and will have this thoughts on the flick soon...

Looks promising

Jonah Hill finally seems to be showing some range. Like the hints at darker comedic territory though not crazy about the "Office inspired" 'snap zoom' cinematography.

Just the kind of awkward goodness I love about movies! Count me in! I don't know why people would see the humor in these situations! It's brilliant!

What?

Not even a single mention of Miley? Thought she'd be a shoe-in.

Looks great. The Duplass Brothers are really coming up in the comedy world. Their improvisation feels a lot less forced than the Apatow stuff now. The Puffy Chair & Humpday are both great flicks. Plus combining them with John C. Reilly in a solid lead role and Jonah Hill doing what he does best. Definitely going towards the top of my list for this year now.

I like it

Sure - it's not inane slapstick like Step Brothers, but I'm all for a comedy with some real issues pushing it forward. I'd be disappointed if it was just a rehash of SB.

Marisa Tomei is a trooper

always paired with ugly actors. She shoulda married Costanza.
