"Shallow Hal" is a Farrelly Brothers film that may not be their best, but can still deliver some laughs and charm. Jack Black is the titular character, Hal, who is very shallow at judging women by their physical features rather than their true "inner beauty". Hal has his eyes opened and is able to see the true beauty of people, conveying the strong message that looks are only skin deep. Gwyneth Paltrow plays opposite Jack Black and does a good job. She is an overweight woman who has a very sincere and genuine personality. Paltrow portrays the real (overweight) character and the "inner beauty" version that only Hal can see. This makes for some funny moments that showcase some major irony. This film is funny, but is overlong for it's content. Pushing nearly two hours, "Shallow Hal" could easily be 15 minutes shorter. Some jokes are funny, others push the line of being too much. However, there is some real charm and emotion in this film that is often lacking from comedies. The script and direction are both decent enough to convey the message with some laughs thrown in. However, the longer runtime makes for times of laughter drought which drags this film down a bit. Overall, I give this film a 5/10.
