John C. Reilly plays a sad sack who kindles a romance with a woman played by Maris Tomei.  So far, so good.  But then he learns that she lives with her very smart and very possessive adult son (Jonah Hill).  This is a very, very dark comedy and a showcase for Jonah Hill, who plays a very manipulative and creepy character with contained intensity.  Reilly, Tomei and Cathrine Keener are excellent as always.  But, overall, not the most accessible comedy.
