TIFF ’11: ‘God Bless America’ Is Hopefully Better Than This Cheap Poster

Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America premieres at tonight’s “Midnight Madness” event at the Toronto International Film Festival. Have you guys seen Word’s Greatest Dad? Wow. That thing is nuts and crazy good and I would expect that this new one keeps up the pace!

I’m not so in love with this poster, but I’d bet it’s just a temporary piece of festival ephemera that will be replaced once the film’s actual campaign kicks in. The film stars Joel Murray (Hatchet, “Mad Men”) and Tara Lynne Barr (“The Suite Life Of Zach And Cody”) and is produced by Sean McKittrick, Jeff Culotta and Sara De La Rose in association with Darko Entertainment (Tedd Hamm and Richard Kelly).

Also written by Goldthwait, the film concerns “Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society. He finds an unusual accomplice: 16-year old Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement.
