Shallow Hal


In this romantic comedy, a young man who is spectacularly unsuccessful in dating beautiful women, is hypnotised to only see their inner beauty. Before long he is deeply involved with what he thinks is a beautiful young woman. However, the rest of the world sees her as she really is -- grossly obese. To futher complicate matters, she happens to be the boss's daughter, and everyone naturally assumes our hero has ulterior motives for his love...

Ian Douglas: I found this a thought-provoking movie, in some ways like Series 7: The Contenders. It is very light in the comedy department, more of a drama than a comedy. Some other reviewers found gross scenes, I did not, just lots to think about. Worth seeing.
