This comedy/drama from 2014 lands solidly in the "grumpy old man and kid are thrown together and learn life lessons from each other" school of filmmaking. While the plot is pretty predictable, Bill Murray is very good as the title character and the rest of the cast is solid, including Naomi Watts as a Russian hooker with a heart of gold and Melissa McCarthy as the kid's mom. The script has some funny lines and is heart-warming without being mawkish. And the soundtrack is excellent, including a great closing credits sequence featuring my favorite Bob Dylan song, "Shelter From the Storm". This movie won't change your life, but it's a pleasant enough way to spend a couple of hours.
