Donald J. 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 film takes place in 1956, 1973, 1977, 1978, 1983, and 1986. See more »
In the bar scene, Trump refers to Roy Cohn as "Right-hand man to Senator Eugene McCarthy." Roy Cohn did not work for Liberal Democratic Minnesota Senator Eugene McCarthy, but rather anti-Communist Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy. See more »
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 »
Funny or Die presents a satirical rendition of Donald Trump's 1987 best selling business book, The Art of the Deal.
I have to commend Funny or Die for putting together an all-star cast. Even Johnny Depp does a fine bit of acting here, and it may be his best work in a long time, aside from maybe Jack Sparrow. This could have been disposable Internet fluff, but everyone seems to have taken it about as seriously as you could.
My only concern is that it might run a bit long. I know it's not very long, but even in its shortness, it tends to get repetitive and they rely far too much on the "Trump is a racist" jokes. That seems too easy to me and really takes the bite out of what could have been possible here.
