God Bless America

If it was intended to be a comedy, then it succeeded. If it’s to be taken seriously as a teaching point, then it missed it’s mark.

spoiler alert

The preaching point of this film suggest that there are unkind people who live in the United States, and the solution is to shoot them. For a movie that want to promote kindness, I believe shooting people would not be the appropriate response. Also, the main leads in this movie eventually find fault with each other and consider shooting each other, which may suggest that there is no one in the United States who shouldn’t be shot. Ultimately there are no useful solutions to unkind people living in the US.

It’s better to approach this movie as a comedy.
