Bill Murray stars as Vincent, a misanthrope who reluctantly babysits his new neighbour’s kid. They form a unique friendship etc etc

This is roughly ‘About a Boy’ with Hugh Grant replaced by drunk Bill Murray. However, St Vincent manages to be sentimental and corny without making you want to puke in your mouth, which isn’t a bad trick to pull. You won’t be watching it again in a hurry but there are worse ways to spend 90 minutes.

St. Vincent is an entertaining film with a well-worn message, but Bill Murray, in his finest role since Lost in Translation, transforms it into holiness.

This easily became a favorite of mine. The story is very moving. It really didn't go where I thought it was going to go, and I'm pretty much ok with that. Plus, Bill Murray is like comedy God.
