Moviefone’s New Release Pick of the Week
“God Bless America”
What’s It About? Bill Murray’s younger brother Joel stars as Frank, a terminally ill man who takes his nothing-to-lose scenario and decides to clean up society. Aided by the crazy 16-year-old Roxy, he goes “Taxi Driver” on annoying reality TV debutantes, media loudmouths and people who text in the theater.
See It Because: The movie’s director, Bobcat Goldthwait, is the king of the dark comedy. If your only perception of Bobcat is “that ’80s comedian with the funny voice,” then you’re missing out on one of the edgiest comedic directors working today.
