Charlie Day’s directorial debut, Fool’s Paradise promises to be a wild ride for fans of satirical comedy. The upcoming American film, set to hit theaters on May 12, follows the adventures of a down-on-his-luck publicist, played by Ken Jeong, who finds his lucky break in a recently released mental health patient, played by Day.

The film stars an ensemble cast, including Kate Beckinsale, Adrien Brody, Jason Sudeikis, Edie Falco, John Malkovich, and Common.
The trailer for Fool’s Paradise, previously titled El Tonto, introduces Day’s character as “The Fool,” aka Latte Pronto, a man who has lost his understanding of the world and the ability to speak. After being released from a mental health facility, he is discovered by Ray Liotta’s character, who takes him to a movie set to finish filming scenes for a Western, where he becomes a mega movie star. The trailer showcases The Fool’s adventures, including attending a movie premiere, appearing on a talk show, and getting married.
However, fame and fortune are not all they are cracked up to be, and The Fool must fight his way back to the things that matter most. With a star-studded cast and Day’s comedic genius, Fool’s Paradise promises to be a must-watch for fans of satirical comedy.
