American Dreamz (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Kill Time)

Arden here. Yes. I blog on the weekends.


Excerpt from my new American review of this American pile of crap.

If this film were an action verb: "to kill time." Not pass time. Ruthlessly murder it. Mercilessly suck the existence out of every second that tics by. This movie is the inevitable conclusion to what might be generously referred to as the Weitz brothers' body of "work." I mean, are you really surprised that the makers of American Pie had a moment where they were like "We should totally use our frat boy humor and complete lack of artistic vision to say something about this country!" And no one stopped them. The studio execs made sure the research screenings were full of deaf-mutes.

It is, without question, the worst film I've sat through for a good 12 months...

Every. Single. Thing. About. It. SUCKED.

Surprisingly, it's my favourite film of the year so far. I thought it was a great self-parody, if a little rough around the edges.

I'm in the middle with this. It is not great and not awful. I saw it before the reviews with a group of college students and they laughed throughout. I enjoyed the cast. Weitz spoke afterwards and did not claim to know how the film would be received. Now he knows and he's probably not too happy.

It looks like the perfect sort of movie to skip at the cinema and see on DVD when I won't have the guilt of paying $11 for it.

Self-parody? So its a parody of itself? The movie is a parody of the movie we're watching?
