St. Vincent Movie Quotes

"St. Vincent" movie quotes follow the unlikely friendship between a young boy and a drunk old man. The comedy film was written and directed by Theodore Melfi. After positive buzz following its premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, "St. Vincent" opened in theaters on October 10, 2014.

In "St. Vincent," single mother Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and her young son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) move to Brooklyn, NY, next door to a drunken, grouchy and overall unpersonable old man Vincent (Bill Murray). The broke Vincent, looking to earn a few bucks, offers to babysit Oliver after school, to which Maggie agrees.

But when Maggie learns that Vincent has been taking Oliver to bars, strip clubs and race tracks, she soon wonders if leaving her son with Vincent, and sometimes stripper Daka (Naomi Watts) was a good idea. But despite their differences and inability to fit in among their own peers, Vincent and Oliver find a unique friendship with one another, one that causes both of them to change in very positive ways.

"St. Vincent" is one of several great films in theaters in the fall of 2014 just like "The Judge," "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," "Gone Girl," "Men, Women & Children," "Left Behind," "The Equalizer," "Pride," "Good People," "The Boxtrolls," "This is Where I Leave You," "The Maze Runner," "A Walk Among the Tombstones," "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."

    A Saint Is a Human Being We Celebrate

    Brother Geraghty: "A saint is a human being we celebrate for the sacrifices they make, for their commitment to making the world a better place."

    Brother Geraghty describes what makes a person a saint. While he's not really the first person who is worthy of that title, for Oliver, Vincent fits that description quite well.

    Vincent: "Okay"

    While it's no shock to him, Vincent is flat broke. Actually, he is worse than broke, in debt, and needs to find a way to earn a few bucks here and there.

    Maggie: "Do you know what that means?"
