Cyrus | 2010 | R | - 6.3.7

When a depressed divorcee (John C. Reilly) finally connects with a woman (Marisa Tomei) he meets, their encounter quickly develops into intense attraction and they seem to have the potential for a perfect relationship. That is, until her adult son, who lives with her, starts interfering and trying to sabotage them. Also with Jonah Hill, Catherine Keener, Matt Walsh and Diane Mizota. Directed by Jay & Mark Duplass. [1:32]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman are seen kissing, and the woman is on top of the man, in bed; the man's bare chest is visible and it is implied they just had sex -- the man is complimenting the woman on her sexual prowess. A woman is seen climbing out of bed, where a shirtless man lies; it is implied they had just had sex.
 A man and a woman kiss passionately on multiple occasions, including once when the woman stands over the man and pulls off her dress (she is wearing underpants and a tank top), and straddles the man and they kiss, only to be interrupted moments later by a young man (her son) turning on a light.
 A man and a woman lie in bed cuddling and kissing one another, and it is implied they are about to have sex until a loud scream is heard; they stop kissing and the woman jumps out of bed. A man kisses a woman's shoulder and neck and she turns to kiss him.

A man is seen lying beside a woman in bed (both are fully clothed).
 A young man asks a man if he is staying overnight with a woman (the young man's mother), the man says it is up to the woman, and then explains to the young man that he and the woman had had sex already. A young man frankly discusses the sexual relationship of a man and a woman (the young man's mother) with the man, saying that the woman can overcompensate sexually.
 A woman kisses a young man (her son) on the cheek in a loving fashion on multiple occasions, including once while having her legs wrapped around the back of the young man as they wrestle on the ground in a non-sexual manner. A young man walks into a bathroom where a woman (his mother) is showering; no nudity is seen and no sexuality is implied.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - As a man urinates in a bathroom (he is facing the wall and we don't see anything, but hear the sounds of urinating), a young man barges into the room and the two begin to shout at and push one another; they wrestle until the man pushes the young man onto a table, breaking the table and leaving the young man whimpering on the ground, saying that the man had attacked him.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
