American Dreamz
2006
For the first time in four years, President Staton picks up a newspaper and becomes a virtual hermit as he begins questioning his narrow worldview. To get him back in the limelight, his chief of staff books him as a guest judge on a TV talent show.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Our nation's culture is a long way down the road of underachievement by now, so it's inevitable someone would see symmetry in the popularity of a president who defiantly avoids newspapers and the popularity of a TV talent contest that celebrates amateurs not good enough for real careers. Fortunately the someone who noticed is Paul Weitz, who previously used his stars Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid to sharp effect, and here carves a wicked, timely satire. I wish it was sharper, but it still has plenty of laughs.
