Rated R · 107 minutes · 2012
Bobcat Goldthwait, the standup-comedian-turned-filmmaker who gave us World’s Greatest Dad, throws out a puzzler with this saga of a middle-age-crazy man (well played by Joel Murray) who goes on a road-trip shooting rampage with his unlikely sidekick, a teenage girl (Tara Lynne Barr) who idolizes Alice Cooper. Is it Goldthwait’s darker-than-thou comic commentary on violence and dumbed-down entertainment in the USA, or does he identify with pissed-off Frank Murdoch, à la Falling Down? We may never know for sure. Writer-director Goldthwait’s scathing portrait of everyday life and parodies of terrible TV shows are fun for awhile, but as the bodies pile up the angry-white-guy riff produces more heat than light. Rage is already cheap and Goldthwait sells it at a discount. Also with Aris Alvarado. (104 min.)
