Gary Oldman, Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale lead an all-star cast including Peter Dinklage and Patricia Arquette in a hilarious comedy of enormous proportions. Firefighter Steve and artists Carol are a happy couple in a stable, loving relationship. But there's just one small problem. When Carol discovers she's pregnant, Steve's less than thrilled at the news. Carol is confused - until she learns that Steve's whole family are dwarves. When it's time for her to meet the family, there's plenty of surprises in store, especially when she meets Steve's twin dwarf brother Rolfe. With a sense of humour and a lot of heart, Tiptoes proves that it's the little things in life that matter.
It really is. Already one of those films where the director and producers fell out, so you're left with a cobbled together final version. It certainly shows, a short running time and an abrupt ending.
It is a film about dwarfism and today's society. How we deal with difficult decisions and the quality of life a dwarf has. Plenty of parties and excess with many regrets afterwards. Tiptoes is an oddity, Oldman is excellent and the rest of the cast is enjoyable. However with this edit there is no direction, where that's the fault of the producers or departed direction, we'll probably never know.
