St. Vincent, 2014. A grumpy old dirtbag gets a babysitting job.
Written & directed by Theodore Melfi. Starring Bill Murray, with Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, & Jaeden Lieberher.
Special effects/design: B
Enjoyment: Very funny. And, while I can see why critics complain that it's contrived, I thought it did pretty well on the emotional side of things. It could have been an awful movie with a different cast, but it works. B
