      Critics Consensus

      A darkly comic polemic on modern culture, God Bless America is uneven and somewhat this but the ideas behind this revenge fulfillment journey has primal appeal. Read critic reviews

        A misanthrope is not an automatically interesting character and criticizing society in such a bland and petty way is overdone. I've heard people call this a satire, but if it's a satire of people who complain about society all the time than I sure missed it.

        The core message about how uncivilized our society really is, does hit home and although very dark and violent, you can sympathize with the main characters. Joel Murray plays the lead in a very convincing manner and the young girl Barr is also quite good. That said, I can't condone the killing of people who wrong us or who are bad. But it does make you think and I give Goldthwait credit for his script and direction. 07-06-2014

        Really...let's glamorize people that want to shoot other people for annoying them. Wonderful...

        Upon hearing he has an inoperable brain tumor, mild-mannered Frank goes on a killing spree targeting reality TV stars, conservative talk show hosts, and others whom he sees as representing the worst of American mean-spiritedness; he's joined in his project by an outcast teen girl. Bobcat Goldthwait's angry but preachy black comedy is sort of an aging hipster version of Joel Shumaker's FALLING DOWN, but with zero subtlety. Frank doesn't speak in sentences, he speaks in editorials.
