Added DiffLines:

** With a huge chunk of beautiful people being perceived as ugly, it also lends to the unfair "[[BeautyIsBad pretty people are jerks]]" stereotype.
** And some find the reverse stereotype "ugly/average looking people are saints" patronizing.

* BrokenAesop: As far as morals go, the inner-beauty one is an oldie, but a goodie. Unfortunately, it loses a lot of its impact with the number of jokes that grossly exaggerate Rosemary's weight problem (including ''two'' smashed furniture gags), turning the message into "TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside, but people will damn sure notice and ridicule you for what's on the outside." More generously, you could turn that last bit into '-but what's on the outside still matters at least somewhat', but that's still quite at odds with the rest of the narrative.

* ValuesDissonance: Not only how [[AcceptableTargets fat equals ugly but apparently being a pre-op, non-passing Transgender]] is unattractive?

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Mauricio, Hal's shallow, snarky best friend who is responsible for [[spoiler: Hal's hypnosis spell ending]] just because he wanted him to be superficial again. Even after we learn his FreudianExcuse [[spoiler: that he was born with ''a tail'' that, since it has an artery wrapped around it, can't be surgically removed]], it doesn't garner him much sympathy, mainly due to him spending most of the movie badmouthing Rosemary, and how absolutely gross it is.
* UnfortunateImplications: Not only how Fat equals Ugly but apparently being a pre-op, non-passing Transgender is unattractive?

** The way Rosemary talks about how she knows she's not pretty and how no man has ever loved her like Hal does will definitely hit home if you are or know a woman who has ever had body image issues.
