With a Jolt, My Mind Awakens…Chapter Forty-Seven: The Guy With The Beard Will Be Your Downfall…

Comparisons of Robin Williams to Sasquatch will terminate in:

Are you scared? Not just a teensy-weensy bit? Yeah, Joel Murray and Girl-of-the-Week Tara Lynn Barr don’t exactly inspire fear or change. Bobcat Goldthwait’s “God Bless America”, a vitriolic production in which they are involved, screams “Play Nice! Bang Bang!” louder and more colorfully than most of its ilk of “Why We Gotta Be This Way, People?” flicks but also writes/presents its message on easily penetrable scratch pad pages that demand immediate interpretation. I liked the movie and its message but couldn’t detach myself from the grim susceptibility of the entire affair, enjoyed every moment and even waved slowly during the characters’ climactic Last Dance into Netflixbula (Netflix + nebula?). I cheered with the protagonists with every Speedy Delivery Bullet. Woo-haa. Down for the count. Spin of the fingers. Empty but entertaining. What else do I need?

Gonna go eat DIRECTLY from the box of croutons now…
