OBAMALAND (2017)

Image result for Obamaland

In 2016 Donald Trump was elected president. While having lunch with Mike Pence and Paul Ryan they all 'accidentally' fell to their deaths. Quick to find a replacement, the government pushed through an additional term for Barack Hussein Obama which eventually turned him into President for life.
Flash forward to the year 2040 and Obamaland has become a reality and the planet will never be the same. Obama has become obsessed with his redistribution ray that will use a laser to redistribute the wealth of Obamaland to everyone.
One problem...lasers do not redistribute anything and it has become quite clear that Barack Obama has gone around the bend.
Enter Tinder Tucker who after an aborted gang rape at a Mexican bar has become on of the freedom fighting Trumpublikans who will use the power of the chain restaurant Applecheez to bring down the president and return America to her former greatness.
Sounds ludicrous, doesn't it?
The thing that works for this is that all of the actors sell it by playing it straight. No matter how bizarre the film gets, they give you one hundred percent and that helps propel even the most inane concepts that are introduced in the film.
Think of the old Airplane films with a Troma filter and you have what Obamaland is. People with a thin skin will probably be offended on both sides of the political agenda, but I think that's it's purpose. Behind the broad swipes of political humor we get a deeper message about the corruption of power regardless of even the best of intentions. Everything must have a balance or things will just spiral out of control.
Finally, the sent me a hat just like the one that Obama is wearing on the movie poster.
I'm a sucker for free stuff and this one is going on the shelf...or I'm wearing it to a Trump rally and seeing how long it takes anyone to notice.
