Plot Summary

Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine - the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.

  • Stay in your seat for the end credits, in which Murray waters a dying plant and karaokes to Bob Dylan's "Shelter from the Storm." That alone is worth double the price of admission. show more

  • The problem on which the movie turns is this: Bill Murray’s natural quality as an actor exudes self-knowledge and knowledge of the world. If he looks depressed, the aura suggests, it’s not because he knows less than we do. He knows more. Murray brings that quality to bear in St. Vincent, but it doesn’t fit. show more

  • A film in which precocious kids say things real kids never would, and larcenous drunks come off as adorable. show more

    Best movie I have seen all year . If you`re looking for a slapstick comedy this ain`t it. It has funny moments and a lot of thought provoking and sad parts . The performance by Murray is first rate .

    I thought St. Vincent was a very enjoyable movie. It was funny and very touching. Bill Murray rocks in the roll of Vincent. The little boy who played Oliver was awesome and of course Melissa McCarthy is alway wonderful. I can't wait until it goes on demand because I will be watching it again.
