Trivia

After announcing the biopic by the ABC Donald Trump officially said that he would sue the movie makers. After watching the movie with his wife Melania he said that he was flattered by the film and it was a great compliment, even if a few facts were wrong, like Peter Wennik, who was a fictitious character. He praised Justin Louis' performance saying that "he did a very excellent job. I just really wish he were my height". Melania also enjoyed the movie but said that the movie brought nothing new since Trumps life "is an open book and there were no surprises". See more »

For some reason I really liked this.
31 May 2005 | by actionladSee all my reviews

The Donald Trump we've all become accustomed to seeing is the one that has been carefully orchestrated on "The Apprentice" and other meticulously crafted media events that cause him to appear to be a powerful individual with numerous connections and much gravitas - kind of like the Godfather.

Anyway, the reason I mentioned this is that even though he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, in order to get where he was, the Donald had to hustle to get respect - at least that's what this movie wants us to believe.

The portrayal of how he had to continually "badger" those in higher positions to get done what he wanted to get done seems very believable. I really liked Louis' portrayal of the Donald as a brat with desperation to get respect, because this is really what everything else hinged on. He could have chosen to only take inspiration from the Apprentice and all the books where the Donald brags about his accomplishments, but instead he approaches it like a man frustrated and struggling to get noticed. Also, we get an idea of his womanizing ways from the time he marries Ivanna onward. For a made for TV movie, this was exceptionally good.

I think the only thing I'd change would have been more information into the construction of the buildings he built and all that he had to do to promote them, including the construction of Woolman arena. Oh well, it was only meant to fit into a 2 hour slot with commercials on ABC so there's only so much that could be shown in that time.
