  • Critic Consensus: A cheerfully silly satire with an unfortunate lack of focus, American Dreamz takes aim at numerous targets, but isn't pointed enough for relevant social commentary.

  • "American Dreamz" is a comedy, not a satire. We have that on the authority of its writer-director, Paul Weitz, who told Variety: "Satire is what closes on Saturday night. So it's a comedy." Actually, it's a satire. Its comedy is only fairly funny, but its satire is mean, tending toward vicious.

  • American Dreamz skewers President Bush and American Idol in order to make obvious points: game shows are rigged, the President is clueless, and the most powerful man in the U.S. is Simon Cowell.

  • A dreamz come true for anyone who reads The Onion or watches the Biting, incisive, and honest satire of America, Americans, and...terrorists. Much more nuanced than the red-scorers would have you believe, American Dreams mixes blithe South park subversion with amiable Airplane slapstick.

  • "American Dreamz" is a black-comedy/satire about an unwilling Middle Eastern terrorist who is called on to murder the U.S. President when he becomes a contestant on "American Dreamz", and "American Idol"-esque talent show.

  • These American Dreamz movie reviews by Amazon customers mirror the state of US politics (e.g., compare to the dysfunctional US congress and the diametrically opposed parties). Read through the reviews here and note the tallies when you have a few moments.

  • "American Dreamz" is not the funniest or cleverest film ever made, but it isn't as bad as a lot of the other reviewers are saying. To be sure, it will offend anyone who is a fan of American Idol, President Bush, or Al Qaeda.

  • American Dreamz tries hard to be both important and farcical, but it leans a bit too much towards farce without being funny enough to pull that off either. ... tries his hand at creating a topical ...

  • AMERICAN DREAMZ is a genial satire that may offend some, or even many, but the satire is not as vicious as it could have been. Regrettably, the satire also is not as funny or insightful as it could have been either.

  • American Dreamz is a 2006 comedy film that satirizes both popular entertainment and American politics during the second Bush administration, called a "cultural satire" by director/producer/writer Paul Weitz.Reviews were lukewarm and the film just about broke even at the box office.
