Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow star in this Farrelly brothers comedy. Hal Larson (Black) is a typical Joe Blow when it comes to his aspirations for a date - he likes women who are magazine beautiful and doesn't care about personality. He keeps an eye out for prospective dates while at the bar with his long-term buddy Mauricio (Jason Alexander), but somehow the A-list beauties just aren't attracted to slob Hal. After a chance meeting with (real-life) management guru Anthony Robbins, however, Hal is hypnotized to see the 'inner' beauty in other people and starts finding the obese thin and attractive. He then strikes up a relationship with the seemingly beautiful Rosemary (Paltrow), who in fact weighs over three hundred pounds. His friends aren't sure what to make of this strange turn in Hal's life and resolve to bring him back from his hypnotic reverie, with unexpected results.
