STARRING Jonah Hill, John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei
DIRECTED BY Jay and Mark Duplass
WRITTEN BY Jay and Mark Duplass

Jonah Hill says his parents are used to seeing him in hard-R-rated romps with lots of sex jokes. But they were pleasantly surprised by Cyrus, an R-rated comedy in which he plays a 21-year-old man-child with a talent for the electric keyboard, as well as an inappropriate affection for his mom (Marisa Tomei) — something John C. Reilly’s character learns the hard way when trying to date her. ”They like seeing the different sides of what I do,” Hill says of his folks. ”Cyrus was just a really weird guy that they don’t know. That was nice for them.”
