Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
