Synopsis

Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher), 12, whose parents just got divorced, moves with his mother (Melissa McCarthy) next door to Vincent (Bill Murray), a cantankerous, misanthropic war veteran whose gambling obsession keeps him perpetually in debt.

When Oliver is bullied at school and loses his cell phone and house key, he knocks on Vincent's door, asking to use the phone to call his mother. Thus begins a friendship between the two, as Vincent teaches the boy all about gambling, fighting, stealing, and other important guy stuff.

  • 4 stars "It's predictable from the moment you read the title, then see the kid is enrolled in a Catholic school 1 + 1=... But the performances stand out. I always can't help but think Bill Murray is just a smartass funny guy, but this was the first movie I totally looked at him differently. In love with his wife while doing all he can to support and give her the best in her final years while his life keeps going down the toilet. He deserved an Oscar nod."
  • 4 stars "good movie - not a comedy but some light moments. would recommend"
  • 2 stars "I went to see this movie because it was advertised as a comedy and I needed a lift. NOT A COMEDY, don't see it when you want something funny and light. The movie is OK just not as it appears in advertising. I left sadder than when I went in!"
