Shallow Hal has mixed messages. Don’t get me wrong, this is one of my favorite romantic comedies. It’s just something about the movie. Well let’s examine the premise. Shallow Hal is the story of a man who is so fixated on looks that he can’t see the beauty in people. Until he unknowingly gains the ability to see unattractive people as attractive. The movie is filled with plenty of misunderstanding based humor. The only problem I have is like I said the mixed messages. Now I don’t have a problem with “fat humor”, It doesn’t really bother me. No I’m talking about the fact that the movie claims all unattractive people are saints and all attractive people are bullies. That’s not always true, but it’s a little thing. The movie is still clever and the message is clear. Plus my mom’s name is Rosemary and her song is in it. Give it a watch, you might enjoy it.
