Shallow Hal

 (2001)

Shallow Hal Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Following the advice of his dying father, Hal dates only women who are physically beautiful. One day, however, he runs into self-help guru Tony Robbins, who hypnotizes him into recognizing only the inner beauty of women. Hal thereafter meets Rosemary, a grossly obese woman whom only he can see as a vision of loveliness. But will their relationship survive when Hal's equally shallow friend undoes the hypnosis?

For more about Shallow Hal and the Shallow Hal Blu-ray release, see Shallow Hal Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jack Black, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jason Alexander, Joe Viterelli, Susan Ward, Bruce McGill
Directors: Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly

Shallow Hal Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like Fever Pitch, Shallow Hal arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's watchable but looks noticably dated, as if it was prepared from an old master originally intended for DVD. I'm not positive this is the case, mind you, but regardless--high definition eye candy this ain't. While Hal doesn't have the edge enhancement issues that crop up on Fever Pitch, the image is consistantly soft and fairly noisy, with a thick grain structure that also seems overlayed with chroma noise. Clarity is better than the DVD, of course, but not drastically so. Facial and clothing textures are slightly more refined, but you never see the level of extremely fine detail that's apparent in the best Blu-ray transfers. Color fares betters; it's bright and vivid without being oversatured, and though white highlights are sometimes blown out--I suspect this is an intentional choice on cinematographer Russell Carpenter's part--the picture has a nice sense of punch and contrast. This is no must-buy upgrade, and I'm almost certain the film could look better, but if you must own Shallow Hal, this is definitely the version to get.


Shallow Hal Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fox has given the film the usual lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix, and as you'd expect from this kind of film, the results are pretty low- key. Let's be honest; Shallow Hal isn't going to be your go-to disc to show off the dynamic expressiveness of your home theater system. The real channels don't get a whole lot of play, but you will hear occasional ambience in the surround speakers--outdoorsy sounds, room noise--along with rare directional effects. William Goodrum's score--and pop songs from the band Ivy--fill out the remainder of the mix, and the music sounds decently full and grounded. The real focus here is on clean, balanced, easily understood dialogue. The disc includes French and Spanish dubs--in Dolby Digital 5.1-- along with optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
