In the 2001 movie, "Shallow Hal", Hal receives hypnotherapy from Tony Robbins. This hypnotherapy helps Hal see the inner beauty in people shine through in what society's view of physical beauty is.
Hal starts seeing everyone who has a good heart and is kind natured as physically attractive. (beautiful on the inside)
Hal's friend, Walt volunteers at the hospital and is deemed a great person. Walt has spina bifida, which causes him to be physically handicapped. Hal still sees this handicap through his new perspective.
When Hal met the kids at the burn unit, he did not see their burns.
Since Walt had inner beauty, why did Hal still see him as handicapped?
