Crazy Credits

At the end of the movie the following credit appears:

Some of the characters appearing in this fake TV Movie may be based on real people, but we took huge liberties and basically made a bunch of stuff up for laughs. With the exception of Alf. He is not real. He is a puppet, and Melmac is not a real planet. And if Melmac was real, it doesn't exist anymore because it exploded. Anyway, even if Alf really lived, he probably wouldn't have been Donald Trump's best man as the filmmakers don't think they would have been that close. May be would have been an user at the wedding or the DJ at the reception? Doesn't matter. See more »

More fun than funny
13 February 2016 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Context: I am not American, and do not live in the US.

In many ways, this could be compared to the 2015 HBO TV-movie 7 Days in Hell. It's essentially a long skit based around one central idea, featuring a number of celebrity cameos. It's something where those involved obviously must have had great fun making it, and that joy is transferred to the viewer.

There is also a case to be made for a comparison between this and 2015s Kung Fury. Both rely heavily on replicating (and exaggerating) the looks and feel of popular media from a former decade (specifically the 80s).

While I can not be sure about their motives, it's easy to imagine that the people involved with this meant this as a sort of satirical reflection over Trump's character, or as an comedic attack on him. Because of Trump's way of handling his legacy and public image (basically not caring), this is not a very successful game plan. And because the caricature of Trump in this movie is (sadly) believable, it never becomes all that funny.
