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'
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.
God Bless America is most effective as a big, loud 'f*** you' to those responsible for breaking the spiritual back and socio-political might of a great empirical democracy; the joke being that those responsible are the movie's key demographic.
