How did I not ever hear about this? It's like when I found out Ricky Gervais had been in an 80s pop band. I guess Hollywood is good about sweeping up its messes pretty quickly.

Straight to video! Apparently the cover doesn't mention midgies.

This looks like everybody involved's student film.

Jiff

I think the original, working title was "Regent Thesis."

bobby

They only did shorts.

Heaven help me, I can't stop watching this. "When the going gets rough, it's only the size of your heart that counts...."

I promise you, for the first half of this I thought it was one of those recut trailer things.

Also, this thing stinks of movie star community service. "Matthew McConaughey, I sentence you to three months on the set of Tip Toes."

Jiff

That's EXACTLY what I thought, as well (the fake-trailer thing). I was, um, shocked when I realized it was real.

Gary Oldman, welcome to your room in hell.

Tim

I thought it was recut too.

Highlights from the film:

**Oldman's tapdance routine through a field of oversized candy canes as he sings "I Could Be a Lil' Sweeter (If the World Was a Lil' Smaller)"
**Kate Beckinsdale's character finally learning to "accept" a little person by holding his tiny hand and helping him across the street to the Juvenile Bootery where he's going to buy his tiny little children's shoes
**Peter Dinklage scowling through every scene he's in
**McConaughey unknowingly urinating on his own mother

I thought it was a re-cut job until I read these comments.

Jiff

Real film. I've seen it on the new release wall at my Blockbuster.

I DARE one of you to rent it.

OR... this could be saved for Colorado June Guy Wrestling Explosion Time!

the reason this movie's wheels shot off isn't (shockingly) because of the dwarfs or shitty writing -- it's because they cast matt mcconaughey to play a man with a moral compass. HE's the man with a magnanimous heart (?).

impossible.

stevie

well said, peepee

bobby

Indictment!
