On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
20/47 Amanda Jones It just had no spark. It lacked charisma with itself. I wanted to love it, but it wouldn't let me.
36/65 Kim Hollis It's humorous if a little knock-you-over-the-head-too much in its intentions.
42/52 Les Winan Mildly amusing, but missing the bite and wit that make good satire. Mandy Moore and Hugh Grant do their best, but they're not working with much.
55/68 Michael Bentley Some inspired moments, but it comes apart fast and the ending is terrible.
99/159 David Mumpower Mandy Moore and Hugh Grant both offer impeccable performances but the movie is too dark and too slight.
132/200 Max Braden The explosive ending made me laugh.

Digg Button  
Paul Weitz, the man who brought us such films as American Pie and the terrific In Good Company, is back at it again as he ventures into the realm of political satire in American Dreamz. He takes an all-star cast full of unique personalities as he creates an ensemble comedy that intersperses the political machine with television entertainment.

Hugh Grant will star in the film as a British television personality, while Dennis Quaid will portray a U.S. president in the midst of a nervous breakdown. All of this takes place against the backdrop of a show called American Dreamz, a super popular television singing contest. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
