Funny while being social commentary. Love buddy movies and this one was definitely a hit. I recommend.

The edgy concept is weighed down by preachiness and a self-indulgent pace.

A pretty awesome black comedy that comes up to the line several times and then goes over it. Some very well done dialogue scenes. Politically incorrect.
LOL funny when it goes there during it's wild mood swings.
Challenging, unsafe, entertainment.
It says "for Jack Burns" at the end. Star, Joel Murray, does bring him to mind.

This was fun to watch... and still very topical. Since this film was made, it's actually gotten worse here in the US... and the people getting a big dose of lead karma were over-the-top parodies, so if you're orange, fat, with little hands... I can't wait for Goldthwaite to skewer YOU. So much of this "culture" is based on utter crap... but I don't have to tell you that, do I ? The Kardashians are still a thing in 2016/7... gross ! Joel Murray is one of the every talented Murray family, but the Big BM does tend to get all the choice roles. Joel Murray is great in this. I laughed, I laughed A LOT.

Fantastic. It's not complex, but it doesn't need to be.

Terrible in retrospective of comparison to 'World's Greatest Dad.' Original premise tied to current events, but horrible execution - even when putting political views to the side.

There are parts of God Bless America that I really, really liked. There were also parts that I really, really hated. The production design was cheap (Tom Kenny voices all the commerical narrators, fake looking blood, cheap sets) and the ending is kind of disappointing compared to some of the high points of the film. If you are a fan of World's Greatest Dad though and don't mind the biting satire, then I think you might enjoy this.

The idea of this movie was so much better than the execution, too much exposition by the main characters throughout. A voiceover would have been better than the characters telling everyone how much they suck as human beings.

You look like fuck pie.

A man who is extremely frustrated with the new direction of the United States has had enough and begins killing those who are unjust in their behavior. As he partakes in these vigilante acts, a young girl named Roxy witnesses and wants to join him. Initially he will not allow it, but she quickly shows she is useful. They go on a Bonnie and Clyde like killing spree.

"We want to see one of your whores get knocked out..."

Bobcat Goldthwait, director of Sleeping Dogs Lie, World's Greatest Dad, Willow Creek, and episodes for several talk shows, delivers God Bless America. The storyline for this picture is very much a Kick Ass knock-off with some great one-liners and action sequences. The acting is very average with no one in the cast worth noting.

"Tell Brad while he's down there to smell my balls."

I came across this some time ago on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. I thought this was very average with a known built-in audience from the success of Kick-Ass. I was disappointed with this and thought it could be better. This wasn't a waste of time but it wasn't special either.

"Did you poop in my food?"

Grade: C-

'God Bless America' definitely fills some blanks in cinema as a whole. Not that much because it put the idea of killing someone for justice (in very few words) on screen; which was a bold move and central selling point. It managed to get across brilliantly collected and sane criticism on the modern culture that dominates the very lives and thoughts of so many people worldwide. An egocentric, anti-human reality, where self is placed above all, people can be un-nice, etc, etc, etc. The subject has titanic proportions, but 'God Bless America' skilfully handles and analyses a great chunk of it. It is true that the story and dialogue (often reaching 'monologue' levels) can become a touch tiring. Anti-cinematic, perhaps. But such is the film's character, not definitely a flaw. You can say it contains lecturing, yet with so much to tell, such delivery would be unavoidable. Thinking of the target audience- the part of it that's satirised in the film, you can't really deny the need for straightforward advice. Even when things turn violent and bloody, or comical, the film retains a tranquil, serious tone, as if it pleads that you watch it with interest and concentrate on its messages.

'God Bless America' doesn't need to and doesn't want to shine too bright; to dazzle you with action and unusual characters and whatnot. 'God Bless America' distinguishes itself as an honest orator amongst the filth it reveals. Much like some (also satirised in the film) try to do by showing others seemingly worse than them. Remember that every film is about ethics, but with gunfights and other 'cool' stuff they can lose some essence. But this one is pretty well balanced. Certainly a worthy title, if not a 'must'.

God Bless America is an excellent film, taking a gory and darkly comedic look at the insanity that grips our culture. Don't mistake the violence as pointless however, God Bless America asks real questions as it deconstructs some of society's most mundane actions and asks us to go beyond in order to see how the western lifestyle has poisoned our souls and our hearts.

Very dark and gruesome but very thoughtful on the topic it conveys and I can relate to it since I'm one of the many who can't stand the celebrated mediocrity that we see in this day and age.

Careful. This one bites.

Bobcat Goldthwait nos entrega su película más oscura. Y eso es mucho decir, si usted ha visto sus trabajos anteriores como las magníficas "Shakes The Clown", "Sleeping Dogs Lie" y "World's Greatest Dad". En esta película más que incendiaria, Goldthwait nos cuenta la historia de Frank (Joel Murray) un hombre divorciado con una hijita insoportable quien, al haber sido despedido de su trabajo injustamente y al saber que tiene un tumor cerebral inoperable, decide hacerle un favor a la humanidad: asesinar a todos aquellos que hacen del mundo actual algo insoportable: jovencitas protagonistas de reality shows, líderes de opinión de ultraderecha y homofóbicos, fanáticos religiosos y demás escorias humanas. Lo acompaña en su matanza la adolescente Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), quien tiene más sed de sangre que su mentor. "God Bless America" deja a las películas "Falling Down" o "Natural Born Killers" como obras inocentes e ingenuas y aunque su tono es cómico, es una cinta controversial en mayúsculas que invita a la discusión y al debate.

A fine satire, not one that will make you laugh out loud, but the observations on the absurdities of modern culture and living are superbly examined here.
