American politics and the ubiquitous Pop Idol TV format are satirised in this comedy, which stars Hugh Grant as loathsomely smarmy host Martin Tweed, exploiting his various desperate wannabe contestants such as the two-faced butter-actually-would-melt Southern Belle Sally and dopey ex- jihadist Omer, who's been chosen to compete by mistake. When the US president gets booked on to the final as a judge in order to boost his waning credibility, the scene is set for an explosive climax.
Surprisingly exciting, funny and touching documentary following children of all ages as they compete in the USA's national spelling championships.
