It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...


American Dreamz (Weitz, 2006)

Hello Paul Weitz, new master of the completely average comedy. Your In Good Company was too bland to register on anyone's radar, and your new film wants to be controversial, but will only be so in the heart of the Red States(Austin excepted, of course).

American Dreamz is a non-committal comedy that is equally mildly funny or blandly boring. Quaid and Grant are funny, if off their respective games, and the rest of the cast is perfectly adequate.

About a Boy may go down as the one wholly successful Weitz film, and this one is no pretender to that throne.

Current 2006 Top Ten:
1. A Prairie Home Companion
2. Dave Chapelle's Block Party
3. Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World
4. American Dreamz
