Director: Paul Weitz Time: 107 min. Writer: Paul Weitz

Mine: This is not the funniest or cleverest film ever made, but it is a very unusual satire. To be sure, it will offend anyone who is a fan of American Idol, President Bush, or Al Qaeda. The jokes are cute but will not leave you rolling in the aisles. There are really good performances throughout, especially by Willem Dafoe and Dennis Quaid This film could have been more mean spirited, but they actually went out of their way to make all the characters empathetic. Some of the terrorist scenes are hysterical. Much better than expected.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: 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 and a showtunes-loving young man from Orange County. Recently awakened President Staton even wants in on the craze, as he signs up for the potential explosive season finale
