My mom was watching Shallow Hal the other day. If you haven’t seen it you’re missing out. It’s a laugh out loud comedy that actually sends a positive message to the people watching. Something like: Everyone is beautiful because we’re all unique. Or at least that’s what I took from it.
Jack Black is hilarious in this movie. I have a lot of respect for the actor in general. I would consider myself a fan of his band Tenacious D. I have some of their music on my Ipod. It’s AWESOME! Tenacious D is composed of guitarists Jack Black and Kyle Gass. Gass taught Black to play guitar, in exchange for Black helping Gass with his acting. It’s ironic how things play out because Kyle Gass is actually in Shallow Hal! Coincidence? Probably not, but the guy is funny none the less. Kyle Gass played Jack Black’s mutual friend in the movie.
The friend that really stood out in the movie was played by Jason Alexander. You might remember this guy from Seinfeld. It’s crazy how much this guy reminds me of my friend Toby. Just because I could see him saying the same thing in that situation. It’s really funny to watch Jason in action to say the least.
Check this movie out, if you haven’t already. It’s a good time.
