Very funny movie with a good message

I thought this movie was really good. Had a lot of funny stuff in it, a good plot, and a very good message; Never judge someone for what they look like.

Good for Teens

It was a good movie, kind of predictable but with a good message. Swearing is probably the only issue, along with at one part thin Rose-Marie strips while Hal watches from bed. But otherwise fine for teens.

Great Movie for kids ages 12+!

Awesome movie! It definately sends out a message about not judging people by their appearances, has some pretty good role models, has some sexual content but not much just one breif scene, there is some drinking, the F-word is used once or twice but overall a good clean, funny comedy

Parents, this will give your kids positive messages!

Sex: Preparing for sex is on screen for about three minutes, which is very inapropriate. Kissing in often shown. Violence: Not much violence, it's mostly about how there are sad parts, like when Hal's dad dies (shown on screen), and a little girl's burnt hair and face are shown for a while. Language: F*ck, sh*t, and maybe a d*mn. Good Role Models and Positive Messages: This movie has the greatest message ever: never judge people on how they look- if they have a tail (like Mauricio), if they are overweight (like Rosemary), if they're toe is bigger then another toe (like Lindi), if they had a bad face injury, (like Kaydance), or even if you look different and people think you're ugly (like Katrina), doesn't mean Hal didn't like them. Hal saw them as hansome and beautiful people- not to mention, a very pretty woman who had a bad personality- Hal saw her as an ugly old lady, when she was really a pretty young woman. Not exactly appropriate for young kids, but perfect for the older ones!
