Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Mr. Trump comes across as an insensitive, lying bully who will do whatever it takes to realize his dream of creating what he promises will be the world's greatest golf resort.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 08.01.2012
Collectivist in spirit, this mostly entertaining film lacks an official host or voiceover narration, which first works swimmingly but eventually becomes too diffuseRonnie Scheib, Variety, 08.01.2012
"You've Been Trumped" is a potent study of the intimidating power of money not in theory but on the ground, an examination of how a wealthy man with a boundless sense of entitlement can strong-arm all opposition without really breaking a sweat.Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 08.16.2012
First-time director Anthony Baxter jettisons all pretense of impartiality, without adding any of the intelligent outrage of his evident influence, Michael Moore.Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 08.02.2012
