St. Vincent is a comedy about a single mother and her weird neighbor. It is about a broke and hard-drinking weirdo who gets reformed by the innocence of a kid neighbor he babysits.
Maggie who has to work long hours after moving to Brooklyn is forced to leave his 12 year old son Oliver in the care of her neighbor Vincent. He is a broke retiree and spends his days drinking and gambling.
Together with close friend Daka who is a pregnant Russian hooker, Vincent brings the boy to the strip club, race track and the local bar. Along the way, an odd friendship develops between the boy and the drunken Vincent. He helps Oliver grow emotionally while Oliver learns that Vincent has a good heart and is often misunderstood which everybody seems not to see.
St. Vincent has a predictable story, a typical story two people who are mismatched but ended up bringing the best in them. What saved the movie is the superb acting performance of the cast most notably Melissa McCarthy and Bill Murray. Melissa McCarthy is being typecast in comedic roles but in this movie her portrayal of a struggling single mother is superb. She did not go over the top like most of her previous movies. It is nice to see Bill Murray back in funny form.
Overall St. Vincent is very good and would remind you of Bad Santa and About A Boy. It may not be a great movie and a bit corny but it is fun to watch.
It stars Melissa McCarthy as Maggie, Bill Murray as Vincent and Naomi Watts as Daka. Directed by Theodore Melfi.
