Who knew orange could be fun...
10 November 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Granted, I must admit that I was initially expecting this 2020 satirical comedy to be utter rubbish. Why? Well, I mean a movie that portrays - albeit in a funny way - the orange leprechaun that was 4 years the head of state, well that was just not exactly the recipe for something great.

Or so I thought...

Turns out that writer and director Param Gill actually managed to put together something that was rather fun to watch, and it is actually fun to watch this satirical jabs at the orange man.

Eddie Griffin was actually rather enjoyable in this movie, portraying Satan, the man whom orchestrated the rise to power for the orange goofball. While actor Jeff Rector - playing Donald Trump - has some of the mannerisms and speech patterns down for imitating Trump, he just didn't really look the part. That was a bit of a shame, because it would have been more enjoyable if the actor actually looked more like the orange man himself. And as for Kevin Indio Copeland - portraying Vladimir Putin - well that was just a massive swing and a miss, because he looked nothing like Putin.

One thing that was missing, was the orange skin tone of Trump, actor Jeff Rector just wasn't smeared enough in orange gunk to make him stand out like the actual clown does.

"Bad President" proved to be entertaining and enjoyable enough for a single viewing, but that is also about it. The movie just doesn't have the contents to support more than a single viewing.

The release date of the movie was just good, as a satirical comedy about the orange man couldn't have come at a more appropriate time.

My rating of "Bad President" actually lands on a six out of ten stars. The movie was fun to watch, but it was hardly a comedy gem in the making. Regardless of you being a Trump devotee or not, this movie is something that should be watched, although I am sure that a lot of Trump supporters out there will find offense in a spoof such as this.
