What to know

critics consensus

While surprisingly sweeter and warm-hearted than previous Farrelly outings, Shallow Hal is also less funny and more bland. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

The story revolves around Hal (Jack Black) who, taking his dying father's advice, dates only the embodiments of female physical perfection. But that all changes after Hal has an unexpected run-in with self-help guru Tony Robbins. Intrigued by Hal's shallowness, Robbins hypnotizes him into seeing the beauty that exists even in the least physically appealing women.

    My issue is less about how well or not this has aged, rather I think the real problem is that the Farrelly brothers try to have the movie both ways. They want the heart and the cheap fat jokes which I suppose is fine but there isn't a lot of variety in those jokes.

    This is one of those movies that I always watch if I happen to flip to it half an hour in on TBS or FX. Yes, there are plenty of fat jokes, but Gwyneth is the most down-to-earth I've ever seen her, and Jack Black gets some great dawning moments as well, like with Cadence in the burn ward.

    Not a fan of Jack Black but I did enjoy it and laughed a few times, More silly than funny.

    Quite a generic Hollywood chic flick.
