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

I was able to see an advanced screening of American Dreamz and was not too sure how I would like it before hand. But it was absolutely wonderful. The film was funny and enjoyable. I enjoy everything Paul Weisz has done in the past and American Dreamz is right on par. Hugh Grant great and Mandy Moore did a really good job as well. Dennis Quaid played the President and could not have done it any better. William Dafoe as Vice President and Marcia Gay Harden as First Lady, though, were even better. Reading the plot, I was not sure what I was about to see, but the story lines flow perfect together and it all comes together for an creative film. I highly suggest seeing American Dreamz.
