Shallow Hal Reviews

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Romantic comedy is pretty tame for Farrelly Bros.

Emanuel Levy

The Farrellys take an artistic step backward with this soft, disappointingly sentimental comedy about the true nature of beauty; they seem to have forgotten their roots in the outrageous and gross-out.

[An] insulting new comedy from Bobby and Peter Farrelly.

There's just about enough charm and laughs here to keep Farrelly fans happy. Even the fat ones.

Window to the Movies

In delivering their message, the Farrelly Brothers seem to have compromised their nothing-is-sacred comedy spirit, but at least their hearts are in the right place.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

When the final act descends into preachiness, it's nearly earned the indulgence.

Shallow Hal is the most endearing portrait of outcasts since last year's Ghost World.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

No comedy classic, but the Farrelly Brothers are on the right track here by bringing heart into their filmmaking. 'Shallow Hal's' deep message surprised me.

although the ad campaign makes it appear the movie is an outrageous attack on the obese, in truth "Hal" saves its sharpest jabs for the small-minded and mean-spirited.

Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)

It has moments of sweetness, and moments of hilarious comedy; but when it comes down to it, the tendency to use gross-out tactics makes it hardly worth sitting through.

John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis

While saying that appearances don't matter, the Farrellys prove that appearances are everything.

| Original Score: 4/10

May 29, 2002

Amor Ciego pretende ser moralista, lo que choca con los Farrelly, para quienes significa un retroceso en su carrera, que de por si no tiene nada de extraordinaria.

Don't expect me to say this too often, but I hope the Farrellys maintain their immaturity, if only because they do it so well.

Alex Ramirez

si lo que buscan son guarradas gratuitas y humor corporal, quizá salgan contrariados, o hasta algo confundidos con el tono moral y la idea central que expresa la película.

Jeremiah Kipp
Matinee Magazine

Disguised as a gross-out comedy simply in order to get made, it's a heartfelt portrait of living in our own skin.

Laramie Movie Scope

This time they've added some heart and insight and cut back on the gross-out humor.

February 2, 2002

Hilarious in parts, sickeningly sentimental in others, Shallow Hal has the Farrellys trying to expand their range, with only mildly successful results.

Full Review Source: BBC | Original Score: 3/5

Michael Dequina

The Farrelly Brothers retreat to a gentler mode--and, in the process, a far less funny one.

Film Journal International

A comedy that is as lame in its storytelling as it is in its physical execution.

tackles the beauty mythos with both humor and sensitivity that may surprise those who think only of body-fluid jokes when they think of the Farrellys
