Cyrus: Trouble Times Three

Three characters in need of relationship therapy. That's what this flick is all about. The poignant moments are overshadowed by the laughs. A good thing? Or bad thing? That's up to you, dear viewer, to decide.
"Cyrus" is a movie that moves to the edge of issuey relationships. But the Movie Slut sees tons of truth on the screen. A secondary triangle echoes the first, adding depth to the goings on.
Unfortunately, the movie ends too soon and too easily. Still that's not a reason to skip it. The pitch perfect cast includes Jonah Hill in the title role, Marisa Tomei, as his mother, John C. Reilly as her boyfriend and Catherine Keener as his ex-wife.
