Funniest Film Ever Made in Toronto
24 November 2017 | by Twilk987See all my reviews

First off let me start by saying that there are no politics in this film. It is loosely based on the infamous "crack smoking mayor" but the actual film has very little to do with his life. This is not a biopic.

What it is, is a brilliantly written and performed comedy that will have you laughing and engaged throughout the entire run time. There was probably not a span of over 3 minutes where I wasn't laughing. Every character you're introduced to is funnier than the next. They really brought in some seriously hilarious and professional comedic actors to star in this. Some are so funny that all they have to do is give you one look and you're on the floor laughing.

The story is outrageous and extremely fun and exciting and the action and comedy never stops. If you're a fan of South Park or Family Guy than you will love this. If you're a fan of comedies and having a good time in general than you will love this!

My advice to you is to not take it too seriously and sit back and enjoy it for what it is; a fun film that will make you laugh and make you forget all of your problems.

Anybody who gives this film a bad review either has a bad sense of humor or is pulling out the political card.
