"The dominate theme of American Beauty is about finding the wonder and joy in each moment of life that most of us have the choice of experiencing or unconsciously pissing away.

While finding the "wonder and joy in each moment of life" is a worthy goal, to imply that this was the "dominate theme" of American Beauty is a bit silly.

In my way of thinking it was more garbage directed at the prurient interest of the public. But that's what sells best these days and how movie-makers usually make the most money.

My opinion of course.
