A satire who focuses on reality shows like American Idol. Sally's dream is to become a music star and to participate in American Dreamz show. In order to achieve this, she leaves her boyfriend and mixes up with the host of the program. Meanwhile, an Arabian boy travels to the USA to visit their relatives and, accidentally, he becomes a participant of the show. The president of the USA is kind of depressed, but the vice president comes up with the idea of a live presentation in the show.


Entertaining and relevant, 30 March 2006 Author: PeachHipGirl from United States I was quite pleasantly surprised by this movie.I didn't know much about it except that it was some sort of send-up of American Idol, it was directed by the guy who did American Pie, and it had some big name actors involved.This is what a mainstream satire should be. While some elements were overt, there is definitely more subtle commentary as well. The performances were all very sincere, which allowed me to be drawn in and entertained.I would also like to make a point to say that I do NOT think that the President character should be written off as a parody of Bush, as I heard some people saying as they exited the theater. While there are certainly elements of the character are clearly inspired by our Commander in Chief (present and past), it is not merely a caricature.Bottom line: This movie is going to be big.
