What the hell was this mess?

Was it supposed to be a sarcastic comedy? If so, where was the sarcasm? Heck, where was the comedy? Was it supposed to make fun of Bush? If so, don't they watch Daily Show or Colbert Report, to know how to really make fun of Bush? (hint, show bush using his own words, that does the trick). And what the bloody hell was that suicide bomber arab kid contestant near the end? what the ??? was t... read more

An underrated movie

Even though Hugh Grant has pretty much passed his prime, I still have a weak spot for him and I try to check his movies whenever I get the chance. To be honest, I thought this one was actually a nice surprise. Basically, it is a satire of 'Idols' and such talent shows and I thought it hit the right notes many times during the whole thing. First of all, there was also a pretty good cast (Hugh Gran... read more

Martin Tweed is the host of a talent show called American Dreamz, and whilst he despises each new season, it's a hit with the ratings. Tweed decides it's time for a new and interesting batch of contestants, and sends out his team to find the weirdest bunch possible. Whilst all this is happening, the President of the United States is becoming more and more depressed, and relies on his Chief of Staff to talk him through everything, even into appearing as a judge on the TV show. Perfect news for the terrorists who use the talent contest as a way to reach the President.
