Ric’s Netflix Picks: “God Bless America”
Are you fed up with reality television and the cult of celebrity that surrounds its “stars?”
It’s time for someone to do something about that.
Frank Murdoch (Joel Murray) is that someone. Frank is a bland, middle aged American man who is sick and tired of how reality television and pop culture have twisted and subverted the common people. More than that though, he just wants everyone to stop being so rude. One day, he snaps and declares war on these things. Joining him on his rampage is the underage Roxy Harmon (Tara Lynne Barr). Together they take on satirical versions of The Real Housewives, American Idol, My Super Sweet 16 and Bill O’Reilly. They show themselves to be the modern day versions of Bonnie and Clyde.
God Bless America, a light-hearted black comedy, caters to our want to destroy that which we dislike. Many people will connect with the theme of the film and enjoy it. Be advised as there is a fair amount of gratuitous comedic gore.
