Donald 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.

In 1988 Donald Trump wrote, directed, and starred in a made-for-TV movie based on his bestselling book ‘The Art of the Deal.’ When the film was bumped because Monday Night Football ran long, the furious Trump pulled the movie, obscuring it from the general public for decades. Now Funny Or Die has unearthed this delightfully dated masterpiece for the world to see.

The movie stars Johnny Depp as Donald Trump, Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin, Henry Winkler as Mayor Ed Koch, Michaela Watkins as Ivana Trump, and also features Alfred Molina, Andy Richter, Jack McBrayer, Robert Morse, Jacob Tremblay, Ron Funches, Stephen Merchant, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Jason Mantzoukas, Kristen Schaal, and ALF. Kenny Loggins, ’80s soundtrack virtuoso, performs the film’s original theme song. The movie was directed by Jeremy Konner (Drunk History) and written by Joe Randazzo (The Onion, @midnight), with an intro from Ron Howard.
