Highly Suspect Reviews: ‘St. Vincent’

Play

See if you can wrap your mind around this: Bill Murray playing an acerbic, self-absorbed, but ultimately lovable jerk. I know, way outside the boundaries of imagination right?

In St. Vincent, Murray plays a crotchety old drunk who befriends an adorable child. You can probably guess what happens from there. Sure, the conceit may be familiar, but Bill Murray elevates the material with one of his best performances to date.

Saint Christopher, Saint Michael, and…Brian have their own midnight mass as they pseudo-pontificate over the finer points of first time director Theodore Melfi’s dramedy.
