So charming it will have you spluttering at the end too. My fave Murray film
Verified purchase
I just love this movie. I have seen it 3 or 4 times now and enjoyed it more each time.

Why? Because it is maybe the perfect Bill Murray comedy performance. Along with Lost in Translation it is my favourite performance of his....though I love him in many others....including Rushmore, Broken Flowers and Ground Hog Day.

It is an American take on the lovely Takashi film Kukijuro....also about a boy who teams up with an older gentleman.....but the story of St Vincent for me hits the spot more. Also reminds me of the fab Grab Torino....as all are about an older gentleman paying it forward to a younger lad who needs help.

Excellent performances from McCarthy and co and the boy is great. The ending makes you really cry after all the laughs....yes this is my fave traji-comedy ...it's so charming and well written too. Highly recommended.

Why was this not a much bigger, more popular film?
Verified purchase
I just can't understand why how this film snuck under the radar. i saw it on a plane a couple of years ago and made a note to watch it again with my wife as I knew she would enjoy it. It has been on my love film rental list for a year and was always saying something like "very limited availability". Why it is not more popular baffles me. It is a great feel-good film told in a more pleasing way than the classic Disney schmalz. Bill Murray knocks it out of the park and for someone whose films can be brilliant, but can also be fairly mediocre too, I thought this was a perfect performance from him. Add to that two big stars in Melissa McCarthy and Chris O'Dowd, plus a cute kid, and what's not to like?

Vincent (Bill Murray) is a miserable grumpy old man who enjoyed his own company until the new neighbours move in next door - Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) newly divorced and her son, Oliver (Jaeden Martell).

Funny movie. I'll give this an '8 out of 10' rating.

Great film for a relaxed night in.

I've been searching for a light-hearted non predictable non chick flick type film with a bit of substance for a long time. Took a gamble on this but it kept me interested throughout. Had funny and moving moments in equal measure. Thoroughly enjoyable

All Star cast.
Anyone that’s a Bill Murray fan like myself will like this movie.
Bill at his best again.
The young actor is good too, working with Bill must’ve been an education. (the lady of the night, lol)
At the end when credits start Bill Murray sings Bob Dylan’s “Shelter from the Storm” which he was asked to do.
A feel good movie, full of life’s lessons and antidotes, tears, laughter and Bill off course.

The Satanic Saint
Verified purchase
Starting off with sex with a prostitute, swearing, progressing to children's violence, drunkeness, thieving,
and strippers, this certainly is a 'feel good' film for American film makers.
Having the main debauched character elevated as a saint is just the cherry on top.

The scary thing is , is how a film industry that's lost its way, has been able to brainwash so many into sharing its false values.

Define Saintly ...
Verified purchase
Enjoyable and funny. Bill Murray is excellent as the grumpy neighbour of Maggie (McCarthy) and her son Oliver. Good acting too by McCarthy, Watts, Martell, O'Dowd etc. Oliver begins to see more in the grumpy old man overtime and both bring out the best in each other. This film will have you laughing and crying at the same time. Great film to watch again and again.

Feel good fun, on what it means to be a good person.
Verified purchase
This was a nice feel good film, with a solid cast of better and lesser known actors, and obviously the great Bill Murray. It does a good job of examining what makes a good person, and revealing the quiet secret lives that many people lead. It's not an action blockbuster, or a jam packed comedy, but for a pleasant evening's entertainment, you won't go far wrong.
