* {{Crowning Music of Awesome}}: While the movie itself is considered dreck by all but its most [[http://www.rogermwilcox.name/ShallowHal.html die-hard fans]], the selection of songs that appear in its soundtrack was quite attractive at the time of its release.

* {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}: Hal's friends calling him out when they think he's only dating Rosemary to suck up to her father, and how his superficiality has finally gone too far. Granted, they're wrong, but can you blame them for assuming?

** Another semi-subversion: Hal telling Rosemary's father his perfectionism has destroyed his daughter's self-esteem and that she deserves better. It's pretty awesome either way, but would have been a lot more powerful had he known what she really looked like.
