Tiptoes (2003)

How the hell did this movie got straight to DVD and not straight to Oscar victory? As the trailer puts it, Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale give "command performances," and it features Gary Oldman "in the role of a lifetime"—a midget!

Here's the basic plot: Kate Beckinsale and Matthew McConaughey are a couple. They're in love and she's pregnant. Everything's great until McConaughey drops a bomb—everyone in his family is a midget. Now Kate Beckinsale is scared shitless that her kid's gonna be born a midget. Gary Oldman plays McConaughey's brother and teaches Beckinsale that there's more to dwarves than funny voices and tiny shoes—there's a heart, too.
