Obviously no one bothered to tell Bobby and Peter Farrelly to stick to what they do best in film making - insanity, stupidity and raunchy bathroom jokes.
June 12, 2018
A movie that meanders from one sight gag to the next, many of which you've already seen in the commercials.
October 18, 2008
With the relatively untested Black coming on awfully strong, the lack of directorial finesse lets the enterprise down, creating some clunky scenes and dead air where laughs might have been expected.
January 13, 2007
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.
May 26, 2006
[An] insulting new comedy from Bobby and Peter Farrelly.

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.
May 29, 2002
While saying that appearances don't matter, the Farrellys prove that appearances are everything.

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.
March 24, 2002
There's something about this well-meaning and even engaging new film from Bobby and Peter Farrelly that doesn't quite work.
February 26, 2002
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.

The Farrelly brothers are fresh out of ideas with this dull effort, a kind of Farrelly Lite. They have replaced intentional bad taste with the unintentional sort.
January 21, 2002
Hilarious in parts, sickeningly sentimental in others, Shallow Hal has the Farrellys trying to expand their range, with only mildly successful results.
January 3, 2002
The Farrelly Brothers retreat to a gentler mode--and, in the process, a far less funny one.
December 9, 2001
A comedy that is as lame in its storytelling as it is in its physical execution.

The concept of beauty being only skin deep is referred to several times, yet is buried under the unrelentingly unpleasant parade of "rhino" gags.
November 24, 2001
The film itself is little more than a series of fat jokes.
November 14, 2001
In the Farrellys world, inner beauty is the same as outer beauty -- otherwise, they'd have found a lovely fat girl to play Rosemary.
November 13, 2001
Not only light on laughs but discomfitingly didactic in its disgust.
