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. It's decent, but uninspired.

A comedy that delivers in every way, "American Dreamz" easily gets my vote.

In a way, this film talks out of both sides of its mouth -- lampooning and loving its targets at the same time. But most viewers, I suspect, won't mind.

It has the good sense to hold up a mirror to ourselves, only instead of making us feel guilty and stupid, it makes us feel inclusive and in on the big joke.

Cleverly written and performed, it's entertaining but uneven.

A moderately engaging satire, some of it amusing and some of it strained, but in considerable measure it reflects a strange circumstance in all our lives.

Weitz's rousing satire is no dream: It's the mad, mad real world of America in the year 2006.

This is a heady mix, but it sounds funnier than it plays, because it needed a Billy Wilder level of cynicism, and Weitz doesn't have anything like that.

So much potential left unused...frustrating. I walked out of American Dreamz feeling good, but it was the kind of fluffy good that this movie should have been mocking, not emulating.

[A] sharply incisive zinger that condemns the American people for... being perfectly willing to be manipulated by their leaders and their entertainers...

What's interesting about the movie is that, while it's only moderately funny, it's extremely amusing...It held my interest throughout.

The Roman rulers used to distract the populace from the problems of corruption and decadence with "bread and circuses." Today's equivalent might be junk food and television, especially "reality" television.

If revenge is a dish best served cold, satire is a dish best served acidically funny and American Dreamz dishes it out in a display of filmic bravado.
April 21, 2006
Enjoyable, sharply-observed satire with a great script and strong comic performances from the entire cast.

Many of us have an American Dream: to go to the movies and laugh. The new comedy American Dreamz will fulfill that fantasy for some people.

The topics of American Dreamz are very broad, but the targeting is often lasered.
