Shallow Hal

Shallow Hal ★★★½

First time ever seeing this. Not only did I find myself constantly smiling throughout this film for its well-written gags, but the message itself was tackled in such a unique way that it actually scored some points for artistic integrity as well. Something you never hear of the Farrelly's doing... Paltrow was adorable throughout the entire feature and Jason Alexander is simply who he is, so that marks that a done deal. This also made me miss how Jack Black used to appear in more than 2 films a year. His talented ability to carry a script really shines in this one. It's not perfect, but I never expected it to be. I actually anticipated it to be much worse, which allows for a slightly higher than usual rating in my book so the good times alone.
