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

Sentimental slop.

It's good to see funny gal McCarthy playing the straight woman in this comedy rather than the appealing/appalling lout. It's even better to see a working mom depicted with care.

Bill Murray is the drawcard, always enjoyable as a rogue, witty eccentric and he does a great job with what he has

St. Vincent will dodge your impulse to projectile vomit. For that, all hail Bill Murray who whacks away at the script's sentimental softballs like A-Rod in full swing.

St. Vincent is no conventional hagiography but it's the movie world's equivalent - a star vehicle. Give director Melfi credit for knowing the capacity of the engine he has under its hood.

Bill Murray: Let's face it: who else could make a heavy-drinking, gambling, cursing man with a pregnant Russian stripper girlfriend and squashed-face Persian cat so likeable?

The adult supporting players are all excellent, but next to Murray, the key casting is Jaeden Lieberher as young Oliver. The kid is a natural in the sidekick role, never once playing it too cute or too actor-y.

St. Vincent is heartfelt and loveably crass. While you expect Murray to be magic, it's really his interplay with apprentice Lieberher that scores.

You can only but feel warm fuzziness in this Saintly sweet movie. A wonderful cast supported with wit, style and utterly heartwarming.

Surprising. Acting was superb and saved what could have a rather predictable story...although the screenplay did pull back from cliche in the nick of time.
