    Synopsis


    God Bless America
    Writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait skewers everything that's wrong with contemporary American culture in this firebomb satire about a disillusioned middle-aged man who embarks on a violent crime spree with a cynical teenage girl. Fed up with his selfish neighbors, fired from his soul-sucking job, and depressed at the infrequency of visits with his bratty young daughter, 45-year-old divorcé Frank (Joel Murray) prepares to end it all after being diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor. Just as Frank is about to pull the trigger, however, he has a sudden flash of inspiration: Before he takes his own life, he'll do the world a big favor and permanently silence the loudmouthed teenage star of a popular reality-television show. After witnessing the clumsy execution firsthand, high-school misfit Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr) convinces Frank to continue his bloody mission of cultural cleansing with her as his sidekick. In no time, Frank and Roxy are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake, and making headlines across the country. But all good things must come to an end, and when their partnership hits an unexpected hitch, Frank draws up plans to go out with a final bang. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Best movie since Pulp Fiction

      This movie is not for everyone however, if you have a twisted sense of humor and think that the world would be a better place if people could just be a little nicer to each other, it may be the best movie you've seen in a long time. There is a movie theater scene that people may feel is in bad taste post CO and frankly it makes me a little ashamed to still like this movie so much.

      Great Commentary on the Sad State of the Nation

      This movie is a great satire of just how low we have sank as a community and nation. The violence is part of the satire and not to be taken seriously. The reason the guy gets fired is classic corporate procedure and knee-jerk reaction. This film is in line with Boondock Saints without the cool McManus Brothers.

      Fantastic film. You'll love it too if you have a wonderfully dark sense of humor.
