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.

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Falling Down" meets modern culture June 5, 2012
By Frasis
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie so much December 24, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am not a violent person, but there are times when I look around and see the state American culture has sunk to, and it makes me angry enough to want to kill people. Bob Goldthwait understands this, and he understands that while we can't, as civilized people, strike out violently (either for fear of repercussions, or simply on principle), we can do the next best thing, which is make fun of the sheer stupidity that has arisen: Reality TV, religious and political extremism (which often overlap), an overdeveloped sense of entitlement, a total lack of regard for others, and the death of common decency and consideration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Comedy? This is as Black as it Gets May 29, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satire to be Taken Lightly
Satire at a high level. Somewhat violent but if you look at it from a humor perspective it is quite fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching
This is not a movie for everyone. Looking for something different. Look no further. This is a story about life's frustrations and one man's response. You may recognize yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you really need both of those parking spaces, Buddy?
This is a weird, funny movie that requires a taste for tongue in cheek humor. As dark a comedy as you are likely to witness, four stars all the way.
