I wanted to watch something that was short and lighthearted tonight, so I decided to watch Funny or Die's satirical take on Donald Trump, which can be found on Netflix. I actually ended up enjoying the film a lot more than I thought I would.
The film has a lot of very good parody elements to it, which I thought made it very funny. The film has a lot of aspects that pay homage to the cheesy 80's inspirational videos, while making fun of them. There are also some film references, such as a very funny "Back to the Future" homage or a funny cameo by Ron Howard. There are also a lot of jokes referencing current controversies surrounding Trump that end up being quite funny.
The acting of the film was pretty impressive too. While the make-up isn't the best, Johnny Depp has a really believable Trump impression, and nails Trump's personality, and the personality that he would likely have in such a scenario. Alfred Molina is also a standout in his supporting role, as he is really funny and brings quite a few laughs to the table. Other supporting actors, like Emjay Anthony, Jack McBrayer, and Patton Oswalt are also good.
So overall, "Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie" was a funny parody that can help you relieve some steam regarding the current election. For or against Trump, it's ridiculous nature is sure to provide some good laughs.
