“St. Vincent”

We went to see the new Bill Murray movie last night to avoid all of the election night coverage angst. “St. Vincent” directed by Ted Melfi was filmed in Brooklyn, NY. Murray plays Vincent, not much of a saint, who drinks, smokes, gambles too much, and drives a 1983 Chrylser LeBaron convertible that is falling apart. Melissa McCarthy along with her son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) move in next door interrupting Murray’s life. McCarthy thankfully has pulled back from her all out acting style in this film and portrays a newly single mother who is trying to cope.

Naomi Watts, plays a Russian call girl/dancer and friend of Murray’s and does an amazing job. Chris O’Dowd plays Oliver’s teacher at St.Patrick’s Catholic school. Just listening to him speak makes me laugh.

The Westhampton 2 Theatre audience was sparse on election night. I loved this movie, maybe predictable, but all the characters were real and put together to make a 21st century story that you will enjoy.
