Tiptoes (Beckinsale, McConnaghey, Oldman, Arquette, etc)

Hi,

Has anyone ever heard of this movie? I rented it and it was a pleasant surprise. Solid performances and such an amazing cast. It was an independent film at the Sundance Film festival and is a drama about family, relationships, and discrimination.

Look at the cast:

Matthew McConnaghey
Kate Beckinsale
Gary Oldman
Patricia Arquette
Peter Dinklage (From Station Agent)
David Alan Grier

Plot Summary

Gary Oldman plays as a dwarf brother to a normal-sized Matthew McConaughey. When McConaughey's girlfriend (played by Kate Beckinsale) becomes pregnant, the pair are fearful that the baby will inherit the Oldman gene. Matters are complicated still further when Beckinsale finds herself falling in love with Oldman's character.

Midget Oldman knocking up pregnant Beckinsale? Sounds kinky. Worth a look. I'm gonna rent it.

I saw it in the store as well. Didn't play many places theatrically if at all.

Also, it doesn't have catchy critics' blurbs on the cover, which sometimes means there weren't any.

I'll give it a look based on your recommendation.

Matthew Bright films rarely do. And for good reasons, IMO.

I'm watching this movie now after reading this article about it:
http://www.cracked.com/blog/i-love-tiptoes/

This movie is comedy gold! Gary Oldman as a midget, Peter Dinklage as a French Marxist, David Alan Grier in a bad toupee fucking midgets, Patricia Arquette with corn rows. This movie is absurd and hilarious and if that article doesn't convince you, nothing will.

Kate Beckinsale is fucking hot in well, pretty much everything. But she's extremely fucking hot in this movie.

Daniel Tosh from Tosh.0 recapped this movie for the "Spoiler Alert" feature of their show. The uncut version, below, runs 43 minutes:
