Shallow Hal


1h 54m 2001

Brief Synopsis

Meet Hal Larsen, the ultimate shallow guy. The first thing he looks for in a woman is, well, looks. Hal won't even consider dating someone with a less-than-perfect body, smile and sense of style. He pursues only supermodels, beauty queens and centerfolds. But after an impromptu hypnosis by self-help guru Tony Robbins, Hal's view of women makes a 180-degree turn; he now sees their true inner beauty. Enter Rosemary, an overweight Peace Corps volunteer. Hal, envisioning Rosemary's kindness and humor as female physical nirvana, is instantly smitten and an idyllic romance begins. When the spell is broken, Hal must face an unrecognizable Rosemary and learn one of life's most important lessons.
