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 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

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.

Enjoyable, over-the-top, and nowhere near as black as the premise sounds, God Bless America is essentially an extended comic op-ed piece.

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 ...

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.

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.

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'

...any film that has the balls to show an incessantly crying baby being blown away with a shotgun will always, unequivocally, get my vote.

[Goldthwait's] shown he has a knack for writing films with strange lead characters whose morals you will question, but whose exploits you will want to follow to the end.

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.

Murray and Barr make for winning platonic chemistry even when Frank suspects himself of impure thoughts. Goldthwait holds his nerve as the film shifts from ennui to malevolent gleefulness.

Embora no seja engraado como acredita ser, a honestidade do roteiro em sua frustrao com a futilidade contempornea algo refrescante em meio a tantos projetos sem personalidade ou ponto de vista.

This black comedy is directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, who miraculously makes the two characters sympathetic. How he does that is still a mystery to me. "God Bless America" makes me feel most uneasy. But, it's hard not to watch.
July 13, 2012
God Bless America is a modern-day parable... It's not always easy to watch, but it's got a lot to say. Just be prepared to have your worldview challenged.
July 13, 2012
There's something disingenuous about this being made by a filmmaker whose claim to fame was appearing in Police Academy 2, Hot to Trot and Shakes the Clown. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that there's something cathartic about it.
July 7, 2012
A combination of blatant shock tactics and poignant, pin-sharp verbal tirades from its lead that are rendered darkly amusing, or you would cry with despair at the apparent truth.
