2014 - ST VINCENT, seen this one a couple of hundred times

The old chestnut about a single mom and her son who move in to a neighborhood where their next door neighbor played by Bill Murray is some old crabby reprobate curmudgeon.  Slowly everyone starts to warm up to each other because after all underneath Bill's heart of stone is a pretty nice guy.

Seen this plot more than I care to remember.  As soon as the film starts you know how it's going to end.

The cast is decent.  Bill Murray has done this crab apple guy before but he does it well.  One of my least favorite actors Melissa McCarthy actually didn't annoy me for a change and Naomi Watts is still pretty easy on the eyes.

St. Vincent is an OK time killer.

102 minutes.
