In order to keep the woman of his dreams from falling for another guy, Charlie Logan has to break the curse that has made him wildly popular with single women: Sleep with Charlie once, and the next man you meet will be your true love.
Following the advice of his dying father, Hal dates only women who are physically beautiful. One day, however, he runs into self-help guru Tony Robbins, who hypnotizes him into recognizing only the inner beauty of women. Hal thereafter meets Rosemary, a grossly obese woman whom only he can see as a vision of loveliness. But will their relationship survive when Hal's equally shallow friend undoes the hypnosis?

When Hal's co-workers bring him a cake for his promotion, Rosemary takes a slice out for herself. They change shots a couple times, and the size of the piece missing from the cake changes several times. See more »
[after Mauricio broke Hal's spell]
Let me ask you something. Who is the all-time love of your life?
Okay... let's say Wonder Woman falls in love with you. And everyone else in the world didn't find her attractive.
It wouldn't matter. Because I know they'd be wrong.
See! That's what I had with Rosemary! I saw a knockout, I don't care what anybody else saw!
You're right. I guess I really did screw you, huh?

"Shallow Hal" is the best film about love, dating, and being shallow that I have seen since "The Tao Of Steve". This is also the best Farrelly Brothers film I have ever seen. It even beats out "There's Something About Mary". Jack Black rocks as 'Shallow' Hal Larsen, a man who wants the perfect woman but ends up falling for the perfect woman. Gwyneth Paltrow did very well as Hal's overweight but big-hearted girlfriend. Not only were the characters well-written, the story was well executed and well plotted. It was unexpected in several ways and I really liked it. The Farrelly Brothers score a critically-acclaimed in-park home run with "Shallow Hal". I give this film 10 out of 10!
