Selected review

In this comedy/drama, Bill Murray plays an aged, dispirited war veteran named Vincent who openly disdains most people and gives little attention to anything beyond alcohol and horse racing. Living a life of solitude in Brooklyn, everything takes a turn when a young single mother (Melissa McCarthy) and her son Oliver move in next door. Vincent eventually takes on the responsibility of watching over Oliver when Maggie is at work. Murray is perfectly unpleasant in his darkly comedic role, as his relationship with Oliver evolves despite his own misgivings, providing young Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) with the fatherly/grandfatherly presence he desperately needs. Though somewhat formulaic, St. Vincent rises above expectations by way of great dialogue, favourable performances from all of the leads, and an unbelievably touching finale that will melt your heart. Much better than you probably expect—definitely check this one out.

Love this movie. Evey character will be like a part of your close inner circle of most cherished friends. My kids and I (10 and 14 yrs old) like ths so much we have seen it at lease 5 times and finding a movie that a 10 yr old and a 14 yr old will watch and like at the same time is a small miracle. This movie makes you feel good about being alive and in the world and helps you see that love and friendship exists in many ways.

St. Vincent is a wonderful movie with a lot of laughs and a good heart. It teaches compassion. A quality that seems to be long abandoned by the majority of humans.

such a good movie with those memorable lines you will find you say to yourself in absurd situations. Like lines from Caddyshack. Bill Murray is at his finest and he is such an underrated wonderful actor. Just want to be around him even if this character is a curmudgeon. My children love this movie as well

This is the perfect blend of comedy (including lots of dry humor, courtesy of Bill Murray) and a heartfelt story. Highly recommend!
