Editorial Reviews

Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of American culture. Divorced, recently fired, and possibly terminally ill, Frank feels he has nothing left to live for. However, instead of taking his own life, he embarks on a killing spree with cohort Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement, and together they embark on a nation-wide assault on our country s dumbest, most irritating celebrities.

Customer Reviews

This was a great movie and very very funny.
Todd S.
I was eager to suggest that if the Academy doesn't award this Best Picture, it was because Sheldon Adelson owns the academy.
R. E. Kelly
The movie is actually quite good and says a lot of things that many people feel is true.

"I know it's not normal to want to kill, but I also know that I am no longer normal." Frank (Murray) has almost had it. He is tired of reality TV, he gets fired from his job for looking up a co-workers address and just found out he has terminal cancer. He decides to end it all but right before he does he sees something on the TV that changes his mind. I must start by saying I loved this movie, but it is not for everyone. Bobcat is getting better and better as a director and writer. I have really like "Sleeping Dogs Lie" and "World's Greatest Dad" but I think that this is his best one yet. I can best describe this by calling it an extreme version of "Falling Down". Without sounding too un-PC or getting the FBI after me Frank in this movie does things some of us want to. Especially those who hate reality TV and are sick of the people on it. I am not advocating what is done in this but I did get a sense of relief knowing I'm not the only one. The acting is good but the writing is great. I highly recommend this but you must not be the type that offends easy. If you are and watch this...you were warned. Overall, Bobcat's best movie yet and one of the year's best comedy's. I give it an A.

Yes, it's preachy, but also tremendously intelligent and meaningful. Among a sea of shallowness, G.B.A actually has something to say. "Let's be more civil" is the theme here, and it's presented in the most graphic and blunt way possible. It does have some structural problems, but if it lacks cohesion, I believe it's because it ultimately succeeds in being one-hundred percent honest. Also, Joel and Tara should appear in way more movies. They are great actors (especially Joel) and so unsung...
It's great, but not for everyone, and Bobcat doesn't care. That's commendable in this day and age. He wants to insult Glee and Diablo Cody (I hated "Juno" for the same reason he does)? He does. He can't be bothered to care if someone won't like it or aiming for universal appeal thus stripping the movie out of all pottentialy controversial opinions or moments. And, boy, does this have them...
I loved it from minute one, but, I can't stress this enough, YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THIS PIECE DEPENDS ON WHETHER OR NOT YOU AGREE IDEOLOGICALLY WITH IT'S CREATOR.

Are you one of those people who feel ill when exposed to reality televison? Did you watch the moive Idiocracy and think, "This isn't just a movie, it's a prophecy." Do you let idiots win arguments because it just isn't worth it to waste the oxygen? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then I highly recommend that you watch God Bless America.

God Bless America has to be one smartest films I've seen in years. This isn't some generic garbage that Hollywood poops out, with the intention of pleasing everyone...it's the exact opposite. This movie has a target audience, and you'll be 100% sure if you're that target audience, if you can make it past the first five minutes of the movie. If you can't make it past the first five minutes of this movie, I would suggest you go and enjoy some Jersey Shore reruns.

"God Bless America" is good, but for a reason many people will either find strange or disagree with entirely: It's a movie that needs to be there.

As some other reviewers have noted, "God Bless America" is more of a rant than a movie, but the ranting is the reason for the movie to exist. It's a statement embedded in good acting and pretty cinematography.

It features a plotline that is by no means wholly believeable (that never stopped anyone from making an episode of The Mentalist) and it is nothing *like* entirely pleasant (that never stopped anyone from watching an episode of The Mentalist) in which two alienated loners, a divorced middle-aged man and a too-clever teenaged girl, find one another and go on a killing spree that features representations from a rogue's gallery of American incivlity and mental degeneration; one that includes, among others, a Glenn Beck clone, a "God-hates-gays" preacher and a large sampling of the superficial, the cruel, the entitled and the merely rude.

It is a rant wrapped in a thin layer of movie that displays a very linnear, paint-by-the-numbers plot, the point of which makes the movie almost like something Brecht might have written were he alive today.

Format: DVD
Frank (Joel Murray), a lonely middle-aged man, diagnosed as terminally ill, embarks on a mission to get rid of those who he thinks are responsible for the moral decline in our modern society. Then Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), a girl who ran away from her home, joins his journey. Unlike in a certain Nicholas Cage film, they wear no mask or costume. Frank and Roxy are more like Bonnie and Clyde, though Frank looks much older than his counterpart.

The best part of "God Bless America" is not the killing rampage by the incongruous pair, however; it is Joel Murray's subtle performance as Frank before he turns into a killer, as a decent person whose life is slowly falling apart. His ordinary life is made unbearable by the people around him in a plausible way. Dejected Frank turns on TV. All he sees there is stupidity.

So far, the film is good. But once the protagonist starts killing, we feel something is not quite right with the film. I am not talking about moral codes. I know this is a comedy, or a satire. The problem is that the story is not just interesting. Their "mission" soon gets repetitious as "God Bless America" does not know where it is going.

The film also fails to develop the characters of Frank and Roxy. What is their relationship like, for instance? Father and daughter? Partners in crime? Or Humbert Humbert and Lolita? We don't know. True, the movie is generally well-acted, but the direction is heavy-handed at times. We are not sure whether we should laugh or not when the protagonist starts rambling monologue about what he thinks deserves punishment. Are we supposed to laugh with him, or at him?

And when he speaks, he speaks on and on, as if being the mouthpiece of the director Bobcat Goldthwait.
