Beauty is on the inside!!,
This review is from: Shallow Hal [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Shallow Hal is a great story about love, beauty and appearence. Hal (jack black) is a guy who judges women by their appearence. One day he gets trapped in an lift with a self help guru who hypnotiseses him altering Hals perseption of women. He meets women who he sees as beautiful super-models but reali they are ugly. He meets Rosemary,(gwyneth paltrow) she is funni, smart, nice and overweight. Generally the story is a comedy but you cant help feeling sorry for rosie. The story follows Rosie and Hal as they date, through Hals eyes she is beautiful but to everyone else she is an overweight woman and people dont give her a chance. Hal finds himself in love with Rosie. But his best friend breaks the spell off, Hal avoides having to see Rosie until one day he realises he is already in love with her.
Shallow Hal is a great film with a fantastic story line and fantastic acting from Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow. It'l have you crying with Laughter and smiling from the heart warming tale. 'Beauty is on the inside' is the message from this story and it shows it well!
