Jonah Hill’s New Movie Wants You To Know That It Is Not About Miley Cyrus

by Dan Koelsch

The comedy Cyrus, written and directed by brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, stars John C. Reilly as a recent divorcee who falls in love with Molly (Marisa Tomei), but there’s just one thing in the way: Molly’s son Cyrus (Jonah Hill), who hates him. The film’s title might make you think of the pop singer with the same name, but thanks to a viral site, the filmmakers are setting you straight.

The website, called “Not Miley Cyrus”, is basically just a hub for a slew of links. What are these links, you ask? They are mostly YTMND style websites that feature a flash video that combines basic animation or text with a short scene from the film. A few of the sites are a little different and focus on spoofing the Internet itself, like Cyrus Roulette and My Pee Spot.


The sites are good for a quick laugh, but that’s about it. This may be inconsequential, but I was surprised the domain names used hadn’t already been taken, like AreYouDrunk.org. While I’m not sure what the purpose is of buying over a dozen domains with only a small payoff, it’s definitely an interesting venture by Fox Searchlight Pictures. See the trailer for Cyrus, in theaters June 18th, below.
