      I'm not sure how, exactly, Bobcat Goldthwait went from squeaky voiced Police Academy oddity to becoming a pitch dark satirist but that is exactly the road he has trod since moving from teh front of the camera to the back as a writer-director.

      Goldthwait's latest effort, God Bless America, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011 where - like all good satire should - it proved sharply divisive amongst audiences. And with the bullet blasting screed against American stupidity soon to reach public audiences a red band trailer has arrived on the scene.

      Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruelest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America.
      God Bless America hits VOD on April 6th and theater screens on May 11. Check the trailer below.

      It's a great premise - it's something that I would argue most people would like to do, but don't because, well, you'd get caught eventually I'm in a parking lot right now and what do I see? A black BMW being driven by a 20 something pulls up and parks in the fire lane.......and there must be 20 parking spots available RIGHT NEXT TO THE FIRE LANE "No, F--k you!"

      Can't f***in' wait. BTW, it's on HDNet Movies channel on May 9th at 8:30pm, 10:30pm and 12:30am.

      HDNet Movies is part of the basic package on Verizon Fios.

      Bobcat Goldthwait was on Attack of the Show last night and they aired an extended clip of the movie theater scene.

      Saw it. Meh.

      The whole premise rings false - a man, steeped in TV pop culture, cracks and rejects pop culture with violence.

      Do men in their late 40's watch teen reality shows? (I guess the creepy portion does)
      Does anything that happens on American Idol upset anyone anymore??

      Just watched this last night. Not a great movie or anything, but a lot of fun nonetheless and definitely worth watching. It doesn't hurt that the main character's partner in crime is at the top of my list of girls to build a shrine for if I ever become a creepo hollywood stalker dude.

      You probably missed the first 10 minutes of the movie where he says he has insomnia and his neighbors keep him up all night, so he basically sits in front of the TV channel surfing. He's not sitting around *watching* this stuff, it's just on. They make that pretty clear. He's a depressed guy who was just told he's going to die, his kid hates him, his neighbors suck, he can't sleep, so he sits on his couch drinking beer and channel surfing.

      No, and that's the whole point of the movie. We have no shame anymore when it's perfectly acceptable to parade retarded people around for our amusement. You essentially just proved Bobcat's point.. Starting to think you didn't watch it.

      That explains it though. From the trailer we don't get the full glimpse in his life. Either way I will still watch it. Good to see a film like this take a jab at someone snapping from it.

      I agree on the no shame part. It has made it's mark through mainstream programming/media and the sales from it is what keeps driving it.

      "You know what really rips my c0ck off???" HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That little girl is the best.

      All movie theaters should show the scene at the movie theater before every feature. Because that short message about turning your cell phone off is workin' like gangbusters

      It's on Netflix instant now.

      Overall I thought it was entertaining, but not great.

      That scene and the guy taking up two parking spots AND those westboro pukes getting shot are lovely!!

      I saw this a few months back On Demand and I absolutely loved it. I will be buying this.

      Just watched this on Netflix last night. It was pretty good! A little slow and depressing at some points, but the points the main character makes are good.
