ST. VINCENT is a comedy drama about an older man whose need for money finds him looking after his new neighbour's young son.

Language

There is one use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes uses of 'Jesus', 'hell', 'damn', 'jerk', 'shit', 'asshole', 'ass', 'piss', 'pissy', 'dipshits', 'screwed', 'crap', 'son of a pitch', 'prick' and 'whore'. An adult character also uses the term 'retard', but is challenged by child characters who tell her that it is 'not cool' and 'not politically correct'.

Sex

There is brief sexual activity, without strong detail, as a woman wearing a bra straddles a man on a bed. There is also a brief scene set in a lapdancing club, in which the performers wear bikinis. There are several verbal references to a woman's profession as a prostitute and stripper.

One boy bullies another boy, who then retaliates by hitting the bully in the face and giving him a bloody nose. There is also a scene in which a character steals prescription medication from a nursing home, with the intention of selling it on the black market, but without success. The same adult character also smokes and consumes alcohol, which are presented as aspects of his irresponsible lifestyle.
