God Bless America has its crooked heart in the right place; too bad it's so inept it can't do anything about it.
January 26, 2019
If you're one of those few people who leave the cinema smiling after enjoying every last minute of mundane murder, what kind of monster does that make you? For even hinting at such philosophical conundrums, God Bless America is essential viewing.

It's simply a rant stretched over an extended running time, lacking in characterisations, direction and audience repayment - aside from a few mild chuckles.

While Goldthwait's heart is in the right place, it's unlikely the blood spilled in his film will make annoying, loathsome people finally straighten ... up.

Goldthwait's bile may be cathartic, but it also feels a bit cheap.
June 2, 2013
It takes dead aim at the culpability of hate-mongering politicians, the religious right and reality TV stars in making the United States the meanest, rudest country in the world.

A brilliant, fearless, and merciless indictment of American culture, and how we've become the lowest common denominator
January 15, 2013
Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America works well as a black comedy and as a satirical look at pop culture and human behavior.
December 4, 2012
It's an intriguing satirical idea, and it works very effectively in places, while being tremendously didactic and heavy-handed in others.
December 3, 2012
Sicko one-trick pony film, whose black comedy is tiresome and mostly unfunny.
November 26, 2012
Enjoyable, over-the-top, and nowhere near as black as the premise sounds, God Bless America is essentially an extended comic op-ed piece.
November 20, 2012
It's a wonderful movie, spoofing and shooting all the worst things about our failing civilization, from the Tea Party, to vicious talk show hosts ...
November 15, 2012
If you can take that premise, I think you'll go along with the film and it's really, in its very weird way, quite funny.
November 15, 2012
It's not that you don't sympathise with the characters' sentiments it is, though, that you can't actually go along with their agenda.
November 15, 2012
Gory, unfunny satire that deserves a prize for the most strained provocation of the year.
November 13, 2012
God Bless America opens strong but finishes with a preachy bludgeoning.
November 11, 2012
Though hilariously funny and luridly hypnotic, God Bless America is quite possibly the angriest and saddest film of the last ten years.
November 11, 2012
A sobering comedy, a darkly comic tragedy and a socially valuable scream that demands our attention (and that of the Americans). He shows that deep down, for all the whoops of God Bless America across the nation, it's actually 'godless America'
November 11, 2012
Although it promises much, the film ultimately fails to deliver the substance, with the stream of deadly bullets making a goddamn mess but never quite hitting the artery
October 22, 2012
For a movie that purports to be a statement about how mean-spirited and crass we've become, Goldthwait has no qualms piling on. Blowing a baby away with a 12 gauge - real or imagined - is about as bottom of the barrel as it gets.
