Released this week: American Dreamz, The Break-Up, The Omen, Over the Hedge.
American Dreamz: Paul Weitz' satiric jab at our country's military-entertainment complex imagines an 'American Idol'-like TV program with the president of the United States (Dennis Quaid) as a guest judge. Hugh Grant does a passable impersonation of Simon Cowell, but it's not enough to make up for the fact that Weitz shows no ability to take this thing over the top, where it belongs.
The Break-Up: This 'anti-romantic comedy' about a mismatched couple (Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston) is often funny, sometimes uncomfortably so. Vaughn plays a guy's guy, and Aniston is a version of her sweet, spunky character from 'Friends.'
