St. Vincent (2014)



Critic Consensus: St. Vincent offers the considerable pleasure of seeing Bill Murray back in funny form, but drifts into dangerously sentimental territory along the way.

Critic Reviews for St. Vincent

All Critics (164) | Top Critics (39)

Murray, the scruffy, gruff-y glue, holds it all together and keeps it from flecking off into granules of sugary-sweet cuteness.

Parade Magazine

Bill Murray does insouciance so well it's hard to complain, even when watching him go through his well-worn motions yet again in the first half of this enjoyable, if routine, bitter-sweet suburban comedy.

Full Review… | January 16, 2015

Watching Murray putz around in a world where danger and happy endings co-exist is a breath of fresh air, albeit familiar but refreshing nonetheless.

Consequence of Sound

It's a cliche, but cliches go on existing only because they go on being refreshed, and Bill Murray and friends bring this one back to life with deadpan flair and a vigilant eye for any disfiguring taint of sentimentality.

Sydney Morning Herald

A funny and moving reminder that in the crabbiest of men can live a generous soul.

A pleasant surprise!

The first half is good, but the later half is not up to the mark. Could have been far greater had they consulted me ;-)

I went in with no expectations because I'm one of the few people who isn't under Bill Murray's hipster-fabulous spell, but this movie is heartwarming as hell, and his gruff outbursts are rather distressing. A young outcast finds a protector and kindred spirit in Vincent, a grouchy old neighbor with far more going on underneath than meets the eye. I can't tell if Naomi Watts's Russian accent is all that authentic, but Chris O'Dowd is dependably hilarious as a freethinking - and thickly Irish - Catholic school teacher.
