Don’t Leave Your Wallet with St. Vincent
I’ve had a bad habit of watching any movie with Bill Murray in it. There have been more than a few clunkers, but what the hell, it’s Bill Murray. With this latest film, St. Vincent, let’s just say that most of those sitting around me continued to sit through the credits just because it featured five-plus minutes of Bill Murray being Bill Murray; it’s that good. It’s not Caddy Shack-silly and I sure as hell would not leave my wallet lying around with most of the characters. But maybe that’s part of its charm. It’s a comedy whose characters have every day, real life flaws. This is one Murray’s best and his young friend, played by Jaeden Lieberher, does a great job adjusting to the weird directions his life is taking during the movie. It’s a must see in a world of remakes and soulless SFX bores.
