Pretty disgusting movie.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - US President, Calvin Coolidge

Of course Doug has to be on cp24 flapping his gums about this movie......

Ford believes the filmmakers are exploiting the late mayor's well documented drug problem. "He went and got help for that issue and we're proud of it. And anyone who wants to make a profit of someone else's illness - well, It's unfortunate for them."

"It's definitely going to be a crowd-pleaser, and topical," Bern Euler told CityNews. "While it is based on Rob Ford, it is a comedy..."

From the trailer it looks like a horrible movie. Only people that will go see it are the haters that just want one last kick at the corpse.
What a stupid looking movie.

I may see it for Melinda Shankar; otherwise it seems to have little redeeming it, unless it's dramatically different than the trailer makes it out to be.

I say that as no great fan of Mr. Ford, whether as a politician or human being.

I despised Ford for using drugs and wasting his life, which was a life of privilege. But that was in the context of real life.


This movie is just terrible. They are making up several subplots that Rob Ford cannot refute, because he's dead. So disrespectful.

Doesn't seem very tasteful considering Rob died.
:facepalm:
If we followed the same train of thought, hundreds of really good movies should have been never released because they are portraying or are based on real people that already died

That family will do anything to appeal to the masses, and to keep their followers happy... are they also gonna show in the movie how Rob Ford managed to divide the city, encourage hatred against certain minorities, degrade women, bully his way up the ladder and shamelessly lie to everybody?

utterly tasteless, a comedy on a guy who passed away already from cancer.

What's next? a roast of rape victims?

Doug Ford should just keep quiet. No point in giving this film or film fest any attention... That is what they are hoping for...

I have seen some decent films at CFF in the past but they need to be more selective... I have seen some really crap films there too...
