So well balanced between humour and message. You decide what it is - amazingly it doesnt preach. Maybe some of us are helped with our mid-life crises, and working out who is responsible and what possibilities still await us...
The biggest thing about Shallow Hal is that you`ll forget that Gwenyth Paltrow is playing a fat girl. So I kept on looking at her and Jack Black and thinking they made a weird match. Also when she broke chairs and could make the biggest splash in a pool you have to remember that she`s fat. But with the ending you`ll find some real heart.
When he returned to the Pediatric Burn Unit, I cried so hard I had to close the window so the neighbors wouldn`t hear me. I knew what was going to happen but still wasn`t prepared. I`m a changed man. Really.
I really loved this movie. It was poignant and gives you something to think about. Not just a waste of time.
I ALREADY SEEN SEVERAL SHALLOW HALS WROTE REVIEWS ON THIS MOVIE, FUNNY.
Pretty funny...and had an EXCELLENT meaning towards the audience...if you`re looking for a light great laugh i definetly would recommend it!!!
i love that movie i think its great not the best couz there
Excellent film. Hilarious. Very warm and heartfelt. I realize that some people were offended by the jokes, but I thought that the film had a message behind all the laughs. Great performance by Jack Black. The energy that he brings to the movie reminds me of Chris Farley, but Black displays a much more "refined manic" energy that Farley. The character development of Hal stuck out the most for me.
I though it was Awesomeand my grandson of six found it to be funney he loved it .
it was good a funny
Its Awesome! I loved it!
Kinda dumb but a good time waster and some good laughs too...it`s aight.
What were they thinking giving Jason Alexander a tail, I mean really?? That was both disturbing and gross.
This movie was hilarious and just proves Jack Black`s abilities as a comedic actor. "It like shaking a bunch of bananas" Need I say more!
well all i have 2 say is anyone in this website who thinks this movie sucks is a loser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A waste of film.
It was cute, but they could have did a better "big Gweneth"
it was very funny untill the end when he kept going out with her
the movie was terrible, not even funny, it`s just crap
Not funny, but still very enjoyable.
the movie was great
I thought it was soo stupid.. I enjoy movies with plot, and this movie had none of that. an I didn t want to see all those fat people! ewwww.. and the cast wasn t very good either.
it was mad halarious. Its one of the best comedies ive ever seen!
An average comedy. Good effort by jack Black, some material may be offence to people that are fat and ugly.
It was okay! It had it s moments but Jack Black deserved more comedic opportunities!
It may not be a very good comedy, but it redefines the word beauty .
NOT just entertainment, not too philosophical, not corny, a great invitation to life , without all-day to day surogats we re all eating
I went to see this movie for laughs but it made me fall sleep. Bad Bad movie. waist of money.
It was..okay. Some parts were funny, but the movie is basically saying that fat people aren t already beautiful. That s why whenever he saw a fat person, they would always be skinny. Inner beauty my
I thought it was okay entertainment-wise, but I could have waited for the video release. Definitely a "feel-good" movie with an underlying message.
I thought it was a waste of time. Gwenyth Paltrow is too good for this movie.
This movie sucked, I can t believe Gwyneth Paltrow put her name to this horrible movie
it has sort of a weak story line because it became very predictable, but a fell good movie, i would wait till it comes out on vedio to see it.
horrible, I basically payed 10 bucks to watch fat people makeout, not my idea of a good time
i thought it was okay
pretty good - better than I expected it to be
Watch the previews and you have seen all the jokes in the show pretty much. Save yourself the $ wait fot it on cable or weekend rent.
GWYNETH PALTROW WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE IN THIS FILM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved it -- sweet and funny...Jack Black is wonderful.
Deeper than it looks.
very very very very goood
Not enough fat jokes! Only four good laughs in the whole movie.
That first comment is obviously from a girl.
Immoral you might think, although IT IS A MOVIE. No heavy girls where harmed in the making of these film... Funny and talk about put-you-in-the-spot situatuions. Not bad for a cheap night going.
Totally useless, immoral piece of film making I have ever seen.
It wasn t as stupid as I thought it would be...
