Review: Cyrus

21 Feb 12

Great cast, miscast

Is this a comedy or a family drama? No idea and nor has the film. That's the problem. It's sort of like an even worse version of STEP BROTHERS (with Will Ferrell and John C Reilly) that really is just "meh." Neither witty nor intelligent, it's not insightful nor engaging. It's just ok. Watchable but dull. Great cast. So what? OCEANS 12 had a great cast and that stank worse than my granny's toilet after curry night at the retirement home. Another example of a script that needed way way more work before it was waved in front of a camera lens.
