Faces amongst Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake follow the same facial patterns of the golden ratio. So doesn’t beauty follow a set of timeless standards, and not in the eye of the beholder? Abby Barnes (Janeane Garofalo) must have everything. She’s a vet and successful host of her own radio talk show called ‘; THE REALITY About Cats and dogs,’; where she entertainingly dispenses useful advice to befuddled owners (‘; It’s O.K.
Abby’s smart, funny, and plays a mean violin. But she’s not tall and blond–and routinely gets overlooked when it comes to love. Noelle Slusarsky (Uma Thurman), on the other hands, is tall and blonde. She’s also kind, generous, and just a little lost. Her career as a model isn’t all that gratifying, and her human relationships with men could provide fodder for a multi-part series on Oprah, Jenny and/or Ricki. Enter Brian (Ben Chaplin), a professional photographer who finds himself on the incorrect end of a roller-skating Great Dane.
He turns to radio sponsor Abby for help, and he’s charmed when she solves his snarling problem with a dose of good sense combined with disarming humor and grace. Intrigued by Abby’s beguiling elegance, evident to him over the air airwaves even, Brian invites her to meet him so he can thank her personally.
Abby nearly agrees, that is until he utters those dreaded five words– ‘; What do you appear to be? Instead of suffer what she actually is sure will be another rejection, Abby represents herself as a tall blonde (who appears like her neighbor Noelle) and makes plans–with the purpose of never keeping them–to meet Brian.

But the persistent and besmitten Brian seeks out Abby, finding her at work. A panicked Abby asks Noelle, who is actually going to Abby at the train station, assume Abby’s identity, establishing in motion an escalating group of intimate and comic crises. Without knowing what’s hit him, Brian falls head-over-heels for someone who may be his perfect soul mates.
But, in the process, he’s also heading to discover the not-so-simple truth about the girl he enjoys.That she’s really not the woman he adores. People change as you get to know them. I think you’re misunderstanding the quotation. Don’t allow someone lets you know what beauty is. That is true. We can all concur that someone like Pamela Anderson is hot.
But when they say beauty is within the eye of the beholder, they mean that to describe times when your friend believes someone is hot while you don’t. Like my friends and I have discrepancies on who we think is hotter sometimes. Likewise, one person may think a car is better looking while someone else may think another car is cooler.
You use the phrase to describe the discrepancies at these times. You’re defining the western concept of beauty and it can appear an evolutionary aspect and a social one. Beauty doesn’t always mix cultures and race in the same manner. Yet, I don’t understand why, evolutionarily, why we are in need of beauty consultancies that seem so narrow. You responded you own question. Many sayings are not worth the indicated words they may be written with. This saying is trying to euphemism the term ‘; beauty ‘; instead of using the perfectly good words such as kindness, intelligence, goodness, and a host of other properly serviceable words. Maybe the beauty which is beheld is one’s own beauty.
