Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Many who see this movie will leave shaking their heads in puzzlement, having expected something else. But a cadre of viewers who appreciate the offbeat and applaud the chances taken by the Duplass brothers will exit with a smile and maybe even an understated fist-pump.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good What makes this dark comedy work so well is the way in which directors Jay and Mark Duplass build an original story on a broad, even farcical, foundation and leaven it with nuance. It's an edgy, engrossing comedy with an art-house sensibility and mainstream appeal. Amid the laughs, emotional truths loom large for each of its rather odd characters.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Still single seven years after the breakup of his marriage, John (John C. Reilly) has all but given up on romance. But at the urging of his ex-wife and best friend Jamie (Catherine Keener), John grudgingly agrees to join her and her fiancé Tim (Matt Walsh) at a party. To his and everyone else's surprise, he actually manages to meet someone: the gorgeous and spirited Molly (Marisa Tomei).

Their chemistry is immediate. The relationship takes off quickly but Molly is oddly reluctant to take the relationship beyond John's house. Perplexed, he follows her home and discovers the other man in Molly's life: her son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill). A 21-year-old new age musician, Cyrus is his mom's best friend and shares an unconventional relationship with her. Cyrus will go to any lengths to protect Molly and is definitely not ready to share her with anyone, especially John. Before long, the two are locked in a battle of wits for the woman they both love—and it appears only one man can be left standing when it's over.
