'American Dreamz' is a 2006 comedy/parody film that satirizes both American politics and popular entertainment.

Director/producer/writer Paul Weitz has stated that the movie is meant to satirize both the TV show American Idol and the Bush Administration. Reviews were lukewarm and business was disappointing.

The roman à clef movie boasts characters who are parody versions of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and television personality Simon Cowell.

American Dreamz Video

On the morning of his re-election, the President decides to read the newspaper for the first time in four years. This starts him down a slippery slope. He begins reading obsessively, reexamining his black and white view of the world, holing up in his bedroom in his pajamas. Frightened by the Presidentâ¿¿s apparent nervous breakdown, his Chief of Staff pushes him back into the spotlight, booking him as a guest judge on the television ratings juggernaut (and the Presidentâ¿¿s personal fave), the weekly talent show American Dreamz. America canâ¿¿t seem to get enough of American Dreamz, hosted by self-aggrandizing, self-loathing Martin Tweed, ever on the lookout for the next insta-celebrity. His latest crop of hopefuls includes Sally, a conniving steel magnolia with a devoted, dopey veteran boyfriend, and Omer, a recent Southern Californian immigrant (who just happens to be a bumbling, show tune singing, would-be terrorist awaiting activation). When both Sally and Omer make it to the final round of Dreamzâ¿¿where the President will be judging along with Tweedâ¿¿the stage is set for a show the nation will never forget.
