Vincent Canby (July 27 1924September 15 2000) was an American film critic.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Canby became the chief film critic for The New York Times in 1969. He was an enthusiastic supporter of many filmmakers, notably Woody Allen, who credited Canby's rave review of Take The Money and Run as a crucial point in his career.

He died from cancer in Manhattan, New York City. Almost three years later, upon the death of Bob Hope, the late Canby's byline appeared on the front page of the New York Times. Canby had written the bulk of Hope's obituary for the newspaper several years before (and quite obviously, before his own death in 2000).
