Fool’s Paradise Trailer
The trailer for Fool’s Paradise gives us a taste of what to expect, and it looks like the film doesn’t hold back on the comedy. From drunken costars to power-mad moguls, the characters are all larger than life and played with hilarious precision by the talented cast. Charlie Day, who wrote and directed the film, has a reputation for his off-beat humor and irreverent style. Fans of his work on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will find plenty to love in Fool’s Paradise But even if you’re not familiar with Day’s previous work, the film promises to be a fun and entertaining ride.
What really stands out is the highlight of physical comedy by Charlie Day, who seems to be channeling the physical comedy of the greats like Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. Day should be applauded, as he has a very distinct voice, and purposely removed that asset from his repertoire. He is also not alone. The star-studded cast includes Charlie Day himself, as well as Ken Jeong, Kate Beckinsale, Adrien Brody, Ray Liotta, Jason Sudeikis, Edie Falco, John Malkovich, Common, and Jillian Bell. With a cast like that, it’s no surprise that the film is packed with laughs and outrageous situations.
The concept of Fool’s Paradise is both ridiculous and brilliant. The idea of a down-on-his-luck publicist stumbling upon a lookalike for a famous actor is the kind of premise that could easily fall flat, but in the hands of Day and his talented cast, it looks like it will be a hit. Another standout performance in the trailer comes from Ken Jeong, who looks to be representing Day’s character Latte Pronto. Jeong is known for his outrageous and over-the-top humor, and he looks to be right at home in Fool’s Paradise.
Another standout is Kate Beckinsale, who plays the beautiful leading lady that the method actor-turned-star marries. Beckinsale is a talented actress with a knack for comedy, and her presence in the film adds a level of star power that will no doubt attract audiences. Lastly, the late great Ray Liotta also stars in the film. It is one of his final performances, and it looks like one hell of a parting gift to his fans.
