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.

Quotes

Carol: Have you ever been involved with a little person sexually?
Steven Bedalia: No, just kid's stuff, you know? Y'know, all the kids would come over, we'd sit in a circle, play doctor and that kind of thing. Couldn't have been more than ten or twelve, so that doesn't really count.
Carol: So you had a circle jerk with a bunch of little people? I would have loved to see that.
Steven Bedalia: You would like to see that.
Carol: Yes, I would.

Whoever dreamt up this nonsense needs our help.
1 January 2007 | by fedor8See all my reviews

Certainly one of the most idiotic films ever made. A PC message movie that ends up making fun of midgets. The dialogue, the situations, the acting (especially Beckinsale) all move constantly somewhere between ludicrous and bizarre. Sometimes unintentionally funny, not funny when it's meant to be, and sometimes just appallingly dumb, and even disgusting, like the Marxist dwarf wrenching with Arquette – yuck!

Casting Will Smith as Mohammad Ali pales in comparison to Oldman playing a hunchbacked midget. Just watching him in this role will you have you either laughing or just staring at the movie in disbelief. Everyone involved in this – except the midgets – i.e. the famous actors who agreed to do this, the man who wrote this, the director, the producers – are utter cretins.
