A film about the unlikely friendship between a young boy and his curmudgeonly Vietnam War vet neighbour might initially set the schmaltz alarm ringing, but this is a keenly observed comedy, its sentimentality liberally laced with top-drawer laughs. Bill Murray stars as Vincent, at first reluctant to keep an eye on single mother Melissa McCarthy's 12-year-old son (Jaeden Lieberher), but he quickly grows into his role as a hard-drinking, foul-mouthed mentor. Writer/director Theodore Melfi sets up a series of events that brilliantly illustrate Murray's talents in his most satisfyingly comedic role in years. Newcomer Lieberher proves to be no slouch in the mirth department either, often employing the deadpan expressions so familiar to fans of the main star, and Naomi Watts offers terrific support as Vincent's "companion", a pregnant Russian prostitute.
Premiere. A lonely 12-year-old boy gets locked out of his house, so turns to his next-door neighbour, a misanthropic Vietnam veteran with a gambling addiction. The neighbour takes a shine to the youngster, and offers his services as a babysitter, providing valuable life lessons and an introduction to the joys of gambling, fighting and petty theft. Comedy drama, starring Bill Murray, Jaeden Lieberher, Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts.
