List Rules Vote up the fat suits that aren't fooling anyone.

Hollywood often puts actors in fat suits in attempts to be be funny. And while fat-shaming is never okay, certain movies add blatantly fake extra pounds for ridiculous fat suit performances. The effect contributes to a pretty played-out punchline, though. Movies like Shallow Hal try to capitalize on larger characters, but the results can be seen as extremely distasteful.

Other programs use fat suits to make a point, but those representations are still somewhat flawed. Many celebrity fat suits just end up being way too over the top.

In the movie Shallow Hal, playboy Hal (Jack Black) is hypnotized into only seeing people's inner beauty. While in this state he falls in love with Rosemary (Gwyneth Paltrow). Things get dramatic when the hypnosis is reversed.

Paltrow spent half the movie in a fat suit, and it's like she's being swallowed. Critics were brutal, calling the film "little more than a series of fat jokes."

On Dr. Oz's self-titled show, he reportedly wore this suit so he could fully understand how overweight individuals feel in America. The prosthetics looked somewhat real, but he may have gotten the same results with a smaller suit.
