Spa Flick Friday: Shallow Hal

1 Oct

Screen:

What if people saw you from the inside out? WAIT, this is not a gory Halloween horror Spa Flick. I mean saw you for your character, personality, soul, the real you. Well that’s exactly what happens in this week’s Spa Flick Shallow Hal.

Jack Black stars with a thin (and then not so thin) Gwyneth Paltrow. Jack’s character is a womanizer who will only date supermodels. But, something happens and suddenly he no longer sees people’s outer beauty, only their inner beauty. Lots of confusion, fun and, make no mistake, heartwarming ensues. Really a spa flick guys and gals will love.

Though it’s message may be trite – it’s also soo right – True Beauty comes from the Inside now that’s a mental makeover we can all get on board with.

Spa:

With a film selection that goes more than skin deep, how about a spa treat that does as well? Take a few minutes after the movie and meditate. Sit quietly and think: What makes you tick? Most happy? What are you grateful for today? This week? You’ll emerge as serene and soothed as if you’ve just had a stone massage.

Sip:

Gwyneth’s character is from an old Irish family in Shallow Hal. So how’s about a Guiness? Only 90 calories a serving and packed with iron. Probably the closest thing to a healthy beer. Cheers!

Live, love and lounge, Candy

    We’ve seen so many crummy comedies that try to be There’s Something About Mary or something like this. And the Farrelly brothers come to the rescue and show us how it’s done. Nice review, on a very good movie. Check out mine when you can!!
