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.

Martin Tweed is the host of a talent show called American Dreamz, and whilst he despises each new season, it's a hit with the ratings. Tweed decides it's time for a new and interesting batch of contestants, and sends out his team to find the weirdest bunch possible. Whilst all this is happening, the President of the United States is becoming more and more depressed, and relies on his Chief of Staff to talk him through everything, even into appearing as a judge on the TV show. Perfect news for the terrorists who use the talent contest as a way to reach the President.Written by
On the tray with the President's breakfast there's a small coffee pot placed right at the middle of the tray, obscuring the reflection of the camera. When the tray enters the President's bedroom, the pot has moved to the side of the tray. See more »
What a terrible movie. The previews looked good, I like the director/screenwriter, and I even like Hugh Grant *and* Mandy Moore. But the film is dull, unfunny, and totally flat. The script isn't witty or clever and most of the actors look bored (especially Hugh Grant). Dennis Quaid doesn't do enough with his character. I was expecting a well-written satire of "American Idol" and the Bush Administration. I was only somewhat intrigued with the dark, unexpected ending but that came only after a boring hour-and-a-half. For a GOOD parody/satire with a GOOD script and GOOD acting, watch "Saved" (about a Christian high school, starring Mandy Moore), "Welcome to the Dollhouse" (about the horrors of junior high school), and "Election" (about a high school student government campaign). "American Dreamz" is already a bomb in the U.S., only made something like $3.5 million during its opening weekend. When I saw the film, there were only THREE of us in the theater! That says a lot.
