Donald Trump has it all. Money, power, respect, and an Eastern European bride. But all his success didn't come for nothing. First, he inherited millions of dollars from his rich father, then he grabbed New York City by the balls. Now you can learn the art of negotiation, real estate, and high-quality brass in this illuminating made-for-TV special feature, Funny Or Die Presents Donald Trump's The Art Of The Deal: The Movie.Written by
The Trump cards, which are prominently mentioned in the movie, are featured in chapter two of the original book "Art Of The Deal". The chapter is called "Trump Cards - The Elements of the Deal". There are eleven cards, of which nine are mentioned in the movie (including "Have Fun"). The card "Enchance Your Location" was changed in the movie to "Improve your location" and "Protect the downside" was originally in the book called "Protect the Downside and the Upside will take care of itself".

Donald J. Trump offered the boy a piece of "Trump Steak", however the first Trump Steak actually appeared in 2007 and not in the 80s. See more »
At the end of the movie there are fake credits for the movie, crediting Donald J. Trump for almost every task (exceptions are e.g. "Catering - The Mexicans"). During these credits Donald Trump is talking to the audience. After that the real credits for the movie appear. After these credits Ron Howard appears and says how awful the movie was and he wants all to forget that this movie or even Donald Trump exists. See more »
Tired Material That Will Appeal To Anti Trump Fanatics
I know this was released several months before he actually won the election, but since Donald J. Trump is now the president elect of the United States, this short movie will probably start to get a lot of attention. It's less than an hour and it's a satirical look at Trump's book "The Art Of The Deal." It's narrated at the beginning and end by Ron Howard, who "explains" that it's a lost movie that Trump himself made and then discarded until it was found at a yard sale outside Phoenix. OK. So it's supposed to be satire. The problem is that it just wasn't very funny.
Maybe it's just because of the unending coverage of a very uninspiring campaign, and now the unending coverage of the transition, but this material portraying Trump as a racist and sexist, etc. already seems tired. I don't care for Trump myself (wouldn't have voted for him if I had been able to vote) and I have no objection to poking fun at public figures - but this just wasn't very funny as far as I could see. "Tired" sums it up. It's the same stuff that's been being said about Trump ever since he jumped into the race a year and a half ago (although it seems so much longer.)
Johnny Depp was all right as the Donald, although he didn't nail him as well as Alec Baldwin has done on Saturday Night Live, but beyond Depp this didn't have much going for it. Fanatical Trump haters will probably think it's classic. It actually put me to sleep toward the end. (2/10)
