Storyline

Vincent is an old Vietnam vet whose stubbornly hedonistic ways have left him without money or a future. Things change when his new next-door neighbor's son, Oliver, needs a babysitter and Vince is willing enough for a fee. From that self-serving act, an unexpected friendship forms as Vincent and Oliver find so much of each other's needs through each other. As Vincent mentors Oliver in street survival and other worldly ways, Oliver begins to see more in the old man than just his foibles. When life takes a turn for the worse for Vincent, both them find the best in each other than no one around them suspects. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Quotes

[first lines]
Vincent: So this Irish guy knocks on this lady's door and says, you know, "Have you got any, uh... Any, uh... work for me?" And she says, "Um, well, you now, as a matter of fact, you could paint the porch." 'Bout two hours later, the guy comes back and says, "I've finished, ma'am, but just for your information, it's not a porch, it's a BMW."

I think Bill nailed it
27 October 2014 | by leshanemurraySee all my reviews

As a picture of real life, and all the superficial BS, and as ugly as real life can be....spot on..thanks to all that brought this to the screen. VS the mind numbing Crapsicles they usually serve us in most movies. Murray is AWESOME as he was in the Razor's Edge..when he was at his tragic comedy best. Proud to be a Murray! Want to know what REAL life is like...go see this. This is by far one of his best roles. Human-yes, flawed-yes. Bring a few tissues. None of us are perfect but this makes us realize that our flaws make us, in other words, a saint. I think tat this is one of the Best Roles ever that I have seen Bill in. Sure, it is funny when he is the clown but watching this will break your heart....in a good way
