Hilarious Funny or Die Donald Trump Biopic
As Donald Trump makes his way further than anyone actually thought he could as nobody took his run seriously, Funny or Die had created a Donald Trump biopic taken from his 1987 book “The Art of the Deal” and the star of Donald Trump is played by none other than Johnny Depp.
It’s a 50 minute video that can be streamed from the Funny or Die website. In an interview with The New York Times, co founder Adam McKay talked about how they created and filmed this short movie without anyone finding out about it until they released it.
McKay said to the times “It was a crazy, completely nuts idea that somehow we pulled off.”
The film is narrated by Ron Howard and has an aesthetic feel to it to make it seem like it took place in the 1980s when Donald Trump as writing the book. It was filmed over a few days in December of last year in 2015.
Funny Stuff from The Film
The movie starts as if it was some sort of lost film and has Donald Trump saying he mad that Monday Night Football was on right before the showing of the film and canceling the original air date. After that there is a scene where a young boy finds the video tape in a garage sale and runs into office, accidently running into Donald Trump.
The kid remarks that wow it’s Donald Trump. Trump then brings him into his office and starts talking business deals with this little kid. Meanwhile you have to remember that this is all played by Johnny Depp in an impressive makeup get up that completely transforms the actor into the part.
Depp not only looks like a strange version of him but perfectly gets down to the way he talks and is a great imitator of Donald Trump.
One hilarious line is “Getting the Taj Mahal” — the main plot of the movie, “It would take the ‘Art of the Deal,’” says Trump played by Depp. “This is that story, in movie form, based on my best-selling book which was in best-selling book form. This is the art of the deal, Okay?”
Tearing Trump Down
The Donald makes himself an easy target for a lot of people but he just doesn’t seem to care. He is out there trolling the country and the world and seemingly doing whatever he pleases. At the same time he is getting a lot of attention and people are supporting him.
If you’re in the business of making fun of Donald Trump and having a laugh at his expense then this is a hilarious piece to go ahead and watch. There was a lot of work that was put into this and there are award-winning directors and a cast and crew that did their best to make this satire intriguing and attentive. It’s the lost biopic that should have been and comes at a great opportune time in the current state of affairs.
