Vincent (Murray) is a war hero turned lonely, misanthropic drunkard, who becomes a comically inappropriate babysitter to neighbour Oliver (Lieberher). Murray and Lieberher are a fine double act, Watts is a hoot as a pregnant Eastern European prostitute/pole-dancer, and despite a conventionally tear-jerking finale it's mostly scrappy and likable.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy star in this comedy drama written and directed by Theodore Melfi. Murray plays Vincent, a misanthropic and curmudgeonly old man who becomes responsible for his neighbour Maggie (McCarthy)'s son Oliver. Maggie, who has enough on her mind with starting her new job at the hospital while going through divorce proceedings from Oliver's father, employs Vincent to take care of Oliver after school. Unbeknown to Maggie, Vincent is a heavy drinker and smoker and likes to hang around bars and racetracks in his spare time. But is there more to Vincent than meets the eye?

Bill Murray's latest is a likeable mix of crabby and cute, co-starring Naomi Watts
Bill Murray is certainly no stranger to misanthropic sad-sacks and his titular Vincent is one such crabby feller, albeit with a slightly coarser edge. Vincent is given a crack at redemption when a young boy in need of a father figure moves in next door…
