“Third act failure” hobbles what might have been a rewarding dark comedy by sibling co-writer/directors Jay and Mark Duplass. John C. Reilly plays John, a divorced loser who meets Molly (Marisa Tomei), whose adult home-schooled son, Cyrus (Johah Hill), she vainly tries to keep secret. Cyrus is a movie that gets you to root for damaged-good characters who never go far enough to save their own skins.
