NYT Review: Geezer Meets Kid, and, Well, You Know

Bill Murray is in full codger mode in “St. Vincent,” a comic Brooklyn tale of intergenerational friendship and complications written and directed by Theodore Melfi. — Manohla Dargis Read the review

Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®

While the film is stuffed with cliches, at least they're the warm and fuzzy kind.

Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly, 2014-11-14


St. Vincent will dodge your impulse to projectile vomit. For that, all hail Bill Murray who whacks away at the script's sentimental softballs like A-Rod in full swing.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2014-10-24


The adult supporting players are all excellent, but next to Murray, the key casting is Jaeden Lieberher as young Oliver. The kid is a natural in the sidekick role, never once playing it too cute or too actor-y.

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 2014-10-24


It's good to see funny gal McCarthy playing the straight woman in this comedy rather than the appealing/appalling lout. It's even better to see a working mom depicted with care.

Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 2014-10-17


St. Vincent is no conventional hagiography but it's the movie world's equivalent - a star vehicle. Give director Melfi credit for knowing the capacity of the engine he has under its hood.

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2014-10-17


"St. Vincent" may not be a great movie, but it is a great lot of fun to watch.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2014-10-17


Murray, with a stable of eccentric characters ranging across the landscape of his career, has selected increasingly idiosyncratic roles in recent years. Vincent is no exception.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2014-10-16


Murray, of course, makes it all work well enough.

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2014-10-16


Bill Murray is one of those actors blessed with the gift of making bad behavior seem grizzled and adorable. It's a valuable tool in any funny person's kit, and Murray uses it to carry the benignly naughty St. Vincent above its material.

Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, 2014-10-16


It's a familiar premise - we've seen similar stuff in "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Up" - but it sails ahead on the collective charms of its ensemble cast.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2014-10-16


A movie with laughter, soul and a twisting path to the heart.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2014-10-16


You just wonder how much more fun it could have been.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2014-10-16


[Murray's] freewheeling, deadpan image fuses so thoroughly with Vincent's own endearingly grizzled misanthropy that it's hard to tell where the actor ends and the geezer begins.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2014-10-16


Of course, Murray is the star attraction here, in a role that's both fan-friendly and reminiscent of the range he showed in "Broken Flowers" and "Lost in Translation."

Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2014-10-16


The broader visual comedy lacks finesse. But the actors win out.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2014-10-16


If St. Vincent flirts with sappiness - it does, and how - Melfi has struck gold in the pairing of Murray and Lieberher.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-10-16


Sentimental slop.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2014-12-04


One of these days, someone should make a movie about a really nasty old guy who, by the end of the story, is still a nasty old guy.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2014-10-17


What is Murray doing in this sort of tapioca?

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2014-10-16


The movie slumps into the hokey, and the actor's curdled misanthropy makes way for a soothing, implausible uplift.

Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 2014-10-13
