God Bless America is a drama/comedy film directed and written by Bobcat Goldthwait. According to an early review from Tom Meek: Murray and Barr have fun with the tart dialogue, and despite the flimsy premise and the derivativeness (Goldthwait lifts whole scenes of Taxi Driver), it might be Goldthwait’s best film to date.
There is certainly more to this film that meets the eye. There are other critics who are also anticipating this new film by Bobcat Goldthwait. Bobcat Goldthwait is known for winning the Festival Award at the Montréal Comedy Festival ‘Just for Laughs’ for the 2003 TV series Windy City Heat. His previous works include the movie: The World’s Greatest Dad. He is now back to bring God Bless America to movie fans in the country. Another critic seems to share Tom Meek’s enthusiasm when it comes to this upcoming film, according to Neil Miller: Darkly comedic, subversive, rage-filled and infinitely charming. I haven’t quite laughed this hard since Bobcat Goldthwait’s last movie, World’s Greatest Dad.
Let’s take a look at what we can expect from the movie: God Bless America
God Bless America is a story about Frank played by Joel Murray who’s had enough of the seemingly downward flow of the American culture. Frank is divorced and was just fired from his job. On top of these things he could be terminally ill, it seems that Frank is at the end of his game and has nothing to live for. The option that most people have in this situation is to take their lives or try at least. But Frank buys a gun and decides to turn his frustration on the most intolerable people he knows. He starts his list with some of the known reality television stars in the country. An unusual accomplice joins his quest in the form of a high school student named Roxy played by Tara Lynne Barr. Together they share a sense of rage and will bring a nationwide assault on the country’s irritating celebrities.
The main actors in God Bless America are Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr. The two unlikely partners who will take on the quest to wreck havoc to the nation’s reality stars. They are also joined by Melinda Page Hamilton who plays Allison, Mackenzie Brooke Smith as Ava, Rich McDonald as Brad, Andrea Harper and David Mendenhall as Roxy’s parents. Although this film is categorized as a comedy movie, the Motion Picture Association of America has given it an R rating due to strong violence and language which includes some sexual sequences. God Bless America is going to be shown in theatres on May 11th 2012 and is produced by Darko Entertainment. Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing are the main companies tasked with the distribution of God Bless America.
If you want to have a laugh and watch these duo wreck chaos on the lives of reality TV stars then God Bless America is definitely a movie to watch.
