Based on the material reality gave the writers of this film to work with, it should've been f---ing hilarious, right? Not so much.
April 1, 2019
American Dreamz has funny and dark moments, but unfortunately not enough of either.

They wanted to cover too many things, and in some cases they have stayed halfway. [Full Review in Spanish]

Truth is, American Dreamz could have used a bracing dose of Simon Cowell's cruel, sharp-tongued venom.
April 21, 2006
American Dreamz isn't mean enough or funny enough.

What if they threw a satire and no jokes came? This is the question American Dreamz answers in its interminable running time.

Is it possible to satirize something that, in and of itself, often crosses the line into self-parody?

[Director Paul Weitz's] best work comes with plenty of breathing room. But American Dreamz is too busy and plotty to afford much of that. The characters end up competing for screen time.

Don't be offended, none of this really means anything, it's just a goof about a lot of dumb stuff going down around us.
April 24, 2006
When the most sympathetic character in the movie is a potential suicide bomber, you know something's wrong.

You won't know whether or not to recommend it to your friends. They'll ask you if it was good or bad, and you'll only be able to respond with "yes."

The pieces are all in place for a slashing Preston Sturges jamboree. All that's missing are balls
April 21, 2006
In American Dreamz, the people are stereotypes, and the context is fake: It's broad, it's thin, it's a big easy target. And ultimately, its dreamz are hollow.

Comes across like a bad 'Saturday Night Live' political sketch, dragged on for way too long ... a lot of great talent wasted.

In the words of Simon, it's a complete and utter disaster.
April 20, 2006
Even when Dreamz was clicking, I couldn't help wondering what a more ruthless filmmaker like Alexander Payne (Election) or even Christopher Guest (Waiting for Guffman) might have done with this material.
April 20, 2006
It's not really a cynical or outrageous point of view, but just a really lazy one, and offensively, exploitatively so.
| Original Score: 2/5
April 20, 2006
The President is a boob in this lazy rip-off. Not funny except for one gem: the angry Arab gay cousin with a dream Weitz steals from him.

April 20, 2006
Paul Weitz's film is a seriously unfunny comedy about that intersection where politics meets entertainment.

American Dreamz struggles so mightily to be clever it forgets to be competent.
