From the makers of Bridget Jone's Diary & Notting Hill comes the must have hit comedy for 2002, but this time it isn't about a girl but About A Boy. Will Freeman is the envy of every man, he drives a fast car, enjoys casual relationships and at 38 has rid his life of all responsibilities....... until he meets Marcus. A unique 12 year old boy who turns his life upside down with hilarious results. Featuring a fantastic soundtrack written especially by the critically acclaimed Badly Drawn Boy, Hugh Grant (Notting Hill, Bridget Jones's Diary) in his best performance to date alongside Rachel Weisz (The Mummy) and Toni Collette (Muriel's Wedding).Synopsis - American Dreamz (2006) On the morning of his re-election, the President (Quaid) decides to read the newspaper for the first time in four years. This starts him down a slippery slope. He begins reading obsessively, reexamining his black and white view of the world, holing up in his bedroom in his pyjamas. Frightened by the President's apparent nervous breakdown, his Chief of Staff (Dafoe) pushes him back into the spotlight, booking him as a guest judge on the television ratings juggernaut (and the President's personal fave), the weekly talent show American Dreamz. America can't seem to get enough of American Dreamz, hosted by self-aggrandizing, self-loathing Martin Tweed (Grant), ever on the lookout for the next insta-celebrity. His latest crop of hopefuls includes Sally (Moore), a conniving steel magnolia with a devoted, dopey veteran boyfriend (Klein), and Omer, a recent Southern Californian immigrant. When both Sally and Omer make it to the final round of Dreamz - where the president will be judging along with Tweed - the stage is set for a show the nation will never forget.
