The new season of "American Dreamz," the wildly popular television singing contest, has captured the country's attention, as the competition looks to be between a young Midwestern gal (Moore) and a showtunes-loving young man from Orange County (Golzari). Recently awakened President Staton (Quaid) even wants in on the craze, as he signs up for the potential explosive season finale.
Unknowingly trapped in her role as caretaker of her unappreciative family, a young single woman desperately needs to get her own life. When she volunteers to cat sit at her unrequited love's downtown L.A. loft, her world, as she knows it, changes forever.
As usual our group of four misfits finds themselves swimming in drama filled situations that bring big laughs. It's clear that Corey still has secrets to hide; as usual Omar seems oblivious to what's happening around him.
Because of the slim production budget, the director could not afford a full complement of extras for several scenes, especially the club scene. In order to make it look like there are enough people in the club scene, he reshot the same extras as many as five times, in changed wardrobe/costumes, in order to make it look like the club was properly crowded. Look closely, you will see some of the same faces multiple times, in different spots in the club, in different poses, wearing different wardrobe. See more »
This movie was different in that it didn't show the typical gay stereotypes that I'm used to seeing. But that doesn't change the fact that it totally lacks a storyline. I'm sure that there are many gay men who are just happy to see themselves depicted on screen, since Black gay characters are seldom seen, and when they are the characters are usually not fully developed. But, how hard would it have been for the writer to actually script a story with a beginning, middle and end. Or how about a story that was focused. There really doesn't seem to be a point to this film, and even though it is a low budget film, that is still no excuse for the lack of story or plot.
