The Fool Triumphant

The ultimate Village Idiot, in which our fool must stand up against an establishment, ultimately exposing the establishment as the real “fool.” FT contains a fool whose ignorance is his or her strength and whose gentle nature makes him or her likely to be ignored (except by a jealous “Insider”), an “establishment” – a group or an institution the fool comes up against, and a “transmutation” in which the fool becomes someone new (sometimes communicated as a disguise or name change or new identity). FT also contains sub-genres: Sex Fool, Undercover Fool, Political Fool, and Fish Out of Water. FT examples: Being There, Amadeus, Tootsie, Mrs. Doubtfire, Legally Blonde, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Shine, Life Is Beautiful, Boogie Nights, Elf, The Artist
