Shallow Hal

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Even though the Farrelly brothers are best known for the multitude of gross-out gags they pack into their puerile comedies, these scatological siblings are equally gifted at compiling excellent soundtracks. While There's Something About Mary highlighted the music of eccentric rocker Jonathan Richman, Shallow Hal is anchored by a gaggle of female singer-songwriters. Among the most notable are Sheryl Crow the sassy '80s nostalgia-soaked shuffle "Members Only", Shelby Lynne the lush "Wall in Your Heart," also the first single from Love, Shelby, PJ Harvey the sweet "Good Fortune", and Lucinda Williams a poignant "Lonely Girls". Rounding out the collection are Neil ...

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Even though the Farrelly brothers are best known for the multitude of gross-out gags they pack into their puerile comedies, these scatological siblings are equally gifted at compiling excellent soundtracks. While There's Something About Mary highlighted the music of eccentric rocker Jonathan Richman, Shallow Hal is anchored by a gaggle of female singer-songwriters. Among the most notable are Sheryl Crow the sassy '80s nostalgia-soaked shuffle "Members Only", Shelby Lynne the lush "Wall in Your Heart," also the first single from Love, Shelby, PJ Harvey the sweet "Good Fortune", and Lucinda Williams a poignant "Lonely Girls". Rounding out the collection are Neil Young's classic "After the Gold Rush" and lesser-known names such as Boston folkie Ellis Paul with the sweeping, hip-hop-flavored "Sweet Mistakes" and the French band Phoenix with the Travis-like "Summer Days." The Farrellys' connection with an obscure '60s outfit, the Foundations, began with the extensive use of their biggest smash, "Build Me Up Buttercup," in Mary and continues with the inclusion of the band's '69 hit "Baby, Now That I've Found You." This eclectic collection of music is anything but shallow.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
With the soundtrack to Shallow Hal, the Farrelly brothers maintain their reputation for having clever, appropriate musical choices for their gross-out romantic comedies. Though it's not quite as fully realized as There's Something About Mary's Jonathan Richman-based soundtrack, or as high concept as Me, Myself & Irene's Steely Dan-obsessed collection of music, Shallow Hal is still worthwhile, starting off strong with the one-two punch of "Members Only," one of Sheryl Crow's more underrated songs, and PJ Harvey's starry-eyed "Good Fortune." Lucinda Williams' "Lonely Girls" and Shelby Lynne's "Wall in Your Heart" maintain the album's surprisingly sweet, romantic tone; Darius Rucker's solo debut, "This Is My World," takes the former Hootie & the Blowfish singer's sound in a smooth, soulful direction that fits his voice well, yet ends up sounding less distinctive than his work with his old group. Rosey's "Afterlife," Phoenix's "Summer Days," and Randy Weeks' "Countryside" are similarly pleasant yet nondescript. Where the soundtrack really shines is in its choice of vintage material, which includes Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush" and Edison Lighthouse's oldie but goodie "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Grows," which also reflects the name of the film's heavy but good-hearted love interest. But the album's cleverest stroke has to be "Baby, Now That I've Found You" by the Foundations, who also provided There's Something About Mary's surprise hit "Build Me Up Buttercup." Like many other soundtracks, Shallow Hal is often uneven, but it offers enough character to make it worthwhile for fans of the film it supports.
