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.

Dwight Brown
National Newspaper Publishers Association

Melfi, an astute director, sets a very eccentric and consistently endearing tone that is reminiscent of the quirky spirit of Silver Linings Playbook.

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.

The cast raise the film to a considerable height, especially Bill Murray and Jaeder Lieberher, who has a surprising naturalness for a child of that age. [Full review in Spanish]

Chicago Sun-Times

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.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

One of these days, someone should make a movie about a really nasty old guy who, by the end of the story, is still a nasty old guy.

St. Vincent is both enjoyable and tear-making-it's a terrific debut for Lieberher-even though you really, really know better.

A recycled story full of clichés, like Bill Murray in cliched acting mode not even able to make a stroke sound convincing and an inevitable cliched final speech… More

The end-result of this film isn't what I expected before I watched it. I didn't even expect its conclusion halfway through it. This film is sweet and… More

The first half is good, but the later half is not up to the mark. Could have been far greater had they consulted me ;-)

Bill Murray is back in comedy!! isn't he? well this is almost a comedy I guess, if you discount all the soppy emotional stuff. You know what really amazed… More
