Shallow Hal

Visible crew/equipment: When Hal goes outside after his special "seminar" in the elevator with Tony Robbins, he hails a taxi and walks over to open the door when he notices that a woman is also opening the door. As the shot pans back from the taxi and he is apologizing to her, you can clearly see a boom microphone reflected in the triangular window, moving back and forth. (00:17:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When in the elevator, Tony says "OK, hypothetical situation..." and as he talks, to the right of the screen you can see some equipment moving around. (00:14:25)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hal and his best friend are having a chat at the bar, Hal's best friend's beer refills after every scene when he takes a drink of it. (00:06:50)

More trivia for Shallow Hal

Question: After the Tony Robbin's episode, Hal is supposed to see the true inner self of women reflected in their appearance. So what's with the chick across the hall? Her appearance doesn't change even though she is portrayed to be somewhat less than kind and shallow in her own right. Am I missing something?

Answer: Tony Robbins tells Hal that whenever he meets someone in the FUTURE he'll only see what's inside them. He already knows what the woman across the hall looks like so her appearance doesn't change, same goes for everybody else he's already seen before.

dan coakley..

Also remember she thinks he is shallow, does not mean she is a bad person herself...she went out with him once already.

This is the same reason why Rosemary's father looks the same either way as well. Hal said he's already seen him around the office (before being hypnotized).
