I agree with Tony B, this was bland. A couple funny moments but overall it was disappointing and really missed the mark.

Call it a satire or a black comedy, the script sparkles at times. Getting off nice zingers mostly comming from Hugh Grant. We get a game cast all getting ample screen time, so why does this comedy miss more than hit? To much on it's Call it a satire or a black comedy, the script sparkles at times. Getting off nice zingers mostly comming from Hugh Grant. We get a game cast all getting ample screen time, so why does this comedy miss more than hit? To much on it's plate, the movie just flat overloads. American Idol is just to easy to trash to be funny, and taking on the bush administrationand the war. has been done to death. I'd also like to add, how does Mandy Moore keep getting cast in films? As a do anything it takes climber hoping to become the next american idol, she stands out like a sore thumb with the rest of this cast. She just doesnt have it, she can't hold a scene with any of the more talented cast. Paul Weitz recruits Jennifer Cooldige from American Pie, this ample comdienne is wasted in a simple part. Watch however for Shohreh Aghdashloo the mother in "the house of sand and fog" in a sweet supporting role. Expand

Bland, ham-fisted topical comedy on only the most obvious of subjects.
