Satirical comedy starring Hugh Grant. To President Staton (Dennis Quaid), the world is a fairly black-and-white place, but a glance at the daily headlines on the eve of his re-election leaves him shaken to the very core. With concern about the President's mental health soon taking precedence over all other issues in the White House, his nervous Chief of Staff (Willem Dafoe) attempts to get the Commander in Chief back in the public eye by booking him as a guest judge on television's top-rated talent show, 'American Dreamz', a weekly ratings juggernaut hosted by self-loathing celebrity Martin Tweed (Hugh Grant). 'American Dreamz' cashes in on the dominant culture of celebrity by affording everyday Americans the opportunity to be catapulted into stardom. As 'American Dreamz' hopefuls Sally (Mandy Moore) and Omer (Sam Golzari) progress to the final round and the President takes his seat on the panel, an unexpected revelation about one of the finalists promises to make this season finale the biggest ratings grabber in television history.
