St. Vincent

He don’t like people. People don’t like him.
05 December 2016

Bill Murray stars as Vincent, a misanthrope who reluctantly babysits his new neighbour’s kid. They form a unique friendship etc etc

This is roughly ‘About a Boy’ with Hugh Grant replaced by drunk Bill Murray. However, St Vincent manages to be sentimental and corny without making you want to puke in your mouth, which isn’t a bad trick to pull. You won’t be watching it again in a hurry but there are worse ways to spend 90 minutes.
