Shallow Hal | Wizard Rating:
I'm sorry, but this is one of the most intelligently written comedies that I have seen in a good long while. All through the movie I was thinking things like "gosh, that's amazing, someone in that situation might actually say something like that!" and "oh yeah, Gwyneth is actually fat....that's why she said that!" and "can't sleep, the fat woman will sit on me."
See, most comedies these days are just a complete and utter nonsense-fest that it's immpossible to watch them without thinking an Acme anvil is going to fall out of the sky at any moment. I suppose that's part of the fun, but they may as well just show the preview over and over again and stop torturing us with all that filler crap.
Jack Black is a funny guy. I could laugh at his monkey face all day long. He wouldn't even have to say anything.
This whole movie is well done with one exception....even guys like Jack Black don't like giant behemoths that waddle around like a dying puss filled rhino. Okay I take that back. Some guys like Jack actually do have some sort of strange desire to poke a puddle of skin....but somehow I think that most of them don't take their fat fetish to this extreme. I mean, come on, there are hot fatties and then there are women like Gwyneth's character. I don't care how "Gwynethy" they are on the inside.
It just somehow ruins all the fun when these movie type morons attempt to program us with this "it's the inside that counts" crap. If that were true then we'd have a random amount of half naked 400 pounders slobbering their way down the runways in Milan and Miss America would weigh over 8 ounces at least once or twice, don't you think?
