Paul Weitz‘s American Dreamz (Universal, 4.14) opened the Bermuda Film Festival last night, and a friend who saw it there tells me it’s “D.O.A.” The performances in this political satire about an opportune alliance between the White House and a populuar televised game show host are, he claims, “one-note jokes…Dennis Quaid is Dubya, Hugh Grant is Simon Cowell of American Idol and Willem Dafoe appears dressed and head-shaven like Dick Cheney. The pacing is totally off, and most of the jokes lie flat like toss-offs from a bad Saturday Night Live sketch.” The costars are Chris Klein, Mandy Moore, Marcia Gay Harden and Jennifer Coolidge.
