Shallow Hal may not have been the best Farrelly Brothers movie, but it was one of their most heartwarming films.
The story focuses on a superficial and selfish man (played by Jack Black), who can't see beyond people's outward appearances. Hal (Black) would have little time for the overweight Rosemary (Gwyneth Paltrow) if he was in his normal state of mind. But after being hypnotized, he begins to see beyond people's looks and develops feelings for Rosemary.
The Farrelly brothers directed this film and co-wrote the script with Sean Moynihan. Like many of their previous flicks, Hal became another hit for the gifted filmmakers.
