Shallow Hal 2001

Directed By: Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly

Synopsis: Shallow Hal is about Hal(played by Jack Black). Hal is a guy who although he is only at best a 2 he thinks he deserves a 10. He happens to get stuck in an elevator with Tony Robins (who plays himself) and Tony helps Hal to only see people beauty for who they are on the inside, not how they look on the outside. After Hal gets out of the elevator he meets a beautiful woman (Gwyneth Paltrow) who he promptly makes. Hal thinks that she is amazing and beautiful and everything you could ever want in a woman, but he has no idea that his supermodel girlfriend is really 300 pounds and hideous. All while this is happening Hal best friend decides that he can’t take it and he sets out on a mission to find Tony Robins and “save” Hal.

Review: This is a super funny movie. I love Jack Black, he is always to funny and really commits to his roles. I also think that Gwyneth Paltrow is excellent in this movie as well. And the part about Hal’s best friend having a tail almost brings me to tears with laughter.
