Review: St. Vincent
I told my kids "Hey I got a funny movie with Bill Murray, and the girl from Mike and Molly". We all scrambled to the couch to watch. We all totally went into the movie thinking it was going to be hilarious. It had several funny spots. It was a little slow at the beginning, but please don't give up on it. The movie is touching and one of the best I have seen in a while. Naomi Watts is hysterical and holds her own against Melissa McCarthy. I don't want to give away any of the plot. I have a feeling many will be surprised at what the movie turns out to be.
Bill Murray is so underappreciated for his dramatic roles. This, in my opinion, is one of his best. The ending of the film made me cry, and I never do that with movies. This one may be a little over kids heads. They will laugh at the funny scenes, but they may not get the whole big picture. This is intended for an adult audience.
