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.
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.
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.Read more ›

This movie pretty much picks on everything we don't like about America and does something about it. We all think of it, but we all know we can't act upon it. Not these two. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Bojingles
This is a nearly perfect piece of commentary on American Culture. If you don't like it, you are likely part of the problem.Published 5 months ago by VoidEng

One of the darkly funniest movies I've seen in a long time. Let's draw the line now: do you have a problem with seeing a baby being shot? If so, then stop reading now and go away. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Rich L.
