After getting re-elected for a second term, president Joseph Staton (Dennis Quaid) reads the newspaper for the first time in 4 years and enters into depression. Trying to snap him out of it, his Chief of Staff (Willem Dafoe) gets him an appearance as a guest judge on, the country and the president's favorite talent show, American Dreamz, hosted by the obnoxious Martin Tweed (Hugh Grant).
