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

Dwight Brown
National Newspaper Publishers Association

Melfi, an astute director, sets a very eccentric and consistently endearing tone that is reminiscent of the quirky spirit of Silver Linings Playbook.

It's almost inevitable that things get icky with this kind of story. Murray acts as a handbrake on that, simply because we don't know what awful thing he'll do next.

[Bill Murray's] the glue that holds this whole mess together.

A lovely little movie with a lot of laughs and a good heart - and a warning signal for a direction Murray's career could take, if he's not careful.

What's to like? Just that it's Bill Murray, with that special charm, however grotty at first he seems.

More predictable than you want from a Bill Murray movie. He usually makes left-of-centre choices, or at least puts a spin on the regular. The latter is true here, but Murray's blissed-out dancing reverie and bad jokes are worth the price of admission.

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.

Sentimental slop.

There's a notable and welcome depth to the players that is unexpected from this assemblage and premise.

Of course you couldn't find a better actor than Bill Murray to play the bitter, grumpy weirdo who ends up being a kid's regular babysitter and… More

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

A recycled story full of clichés, like Bill Murray in cliched acting mode not even able to make a stroke sound convincing and an inevitable cliched final speech… More

The end-result of this film isn't what I expected before I watched it. I didn't even expect its conclusion halfway through it. This film is sweet and… More
