"Shallow Hal" Debuts: Another Film by Rensselaer Graduate Farrelly

Bobby Farrelly '81 is a producer of comedy movies. As the profile in September's Rensselaer Magazine explains, he and his brother Peter produced hits like Dumb and Dumber and There's Something About Mary.

This weekend, the Farrelly brothers' latest film debuts, Shallow Hal. This movie appears to have polarized reviewers to a level not often seen. In today's review in the New York Times, A.O. Scott writes, "Shallow Hal... is comparatively restrained when it comes to bodily effluvia and leering dirty jokes. The most shocking thing about it may be its unabashed sincerity. There are enough moments of demented comedy to make you aspirate your popcorn, but by the end you may find yourself, with some amazement, sniffing back tears."
