Summary:

John C. Reilly plays a likeable loser who gets way more than he bargained for when he meets the woman of his dreams.

John (John C. Reilly) has been unlucky in love. He's been single for seven years and his ex-wife (Catherine Keener) is about to be remarried. With his social life at an all-time low, John is persuaded to attend a party, but the evening looks as though it's heading for disaster when John gets drunk and makes a show of himself. So it's to everyone's surprise - including John's - when he meets Molly (Marisa Tomei), a beautiful and gregarious woman with whom he has amazing chemistry. However, John soon discovers that Molly has another man in her life - her 21-year-old son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill). Cyrus and Molly have an unusual relationship and it quickly becomes clear he's not willing to share his mum with anyone, least of all John...

Review:

Im going to be brief because bad movies like this don't deserve much. I didn't laugh much watching this movie. First scene when his wife walks in on him was slightly funny and the other scenes seem forced due to lack of material. The directing was OK. The camera shake, weak storyline, low budget, bad casting are to blame. Not to mention the whole "he took my shoes thing" was just stupid. The screen play appears to be written by someone in high school. It has no complexity and no character development. This is by far one of the worst movies I've seen so far. Do not see this movie, wait for it on DVD and only watch if you are extremely bored.
