Trivia

Director Matthew Bright was fired after he turned in his cut, and the whole film was then re-edited. Peter Dinklage has said the original director's cut, which screened in Austin, TX, was "gorgeous", but the people who fired Bright "ruined the movie". See more »

Goofs

Steve is worried that his son might inherit the gene for dwarfism and become a dwarf himself. For the overwhelmingly most common form of dwarfism (known as "achondroplasia"), it is only possible to inherit the gene if either parent is a dwarf, which is obviously not the case. For the less common forms of heritable dwarfism, it is only possible to have a dwarf child if BOTH parents' families have a history of dwarfism, and the film does not show Carol's family to have such a history. In fact, Steve being the only average-sized individual from a family of dwarfs makes it overwhelmingly likely that he did NOT inherit any genes for dwarfism and therefore has a next-to-nothing chance of having a dwarf child.

How did they ever get funding for this?
7 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is quite possibly the worst film I have ever seen. The writing is both bizarre and predictable. The film has very little flow and except for Peter Dinklage all of the performances are stiff. I sincerely hope that Bill Weiner never picks up a pen again. I really do not understand how such big names could have been involved in what is effectively an after school special. There are a few scenes that qualify as funny in a campy sort of way, but the overall effect is that of sentimental schlock. I find myself deeply ambivalent about the characters; they were simply too idiotic and immature to connect with effectively. I regret not turning this film off half-way through; it represents an hour and a half of my life that I will never get back.
