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

At the Saharan hotel, when Lucy adjusts Maurice's back her round suitcase displays a 'love yourself' label reading right-side-up. In the next shot the label is missing. And then, when Lucy goes to pour another drink, the label is shown again reading upside-down. See more »

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.

Disappointing
25 January 2004 | by ArizWldcatSee all my reviews

This film premiered at Sundance and I was happy to have the opportunity to see it. I am a big fan of Gary Oldman and was looking forward to seeing him play a dwarf. The storyline was interesting; however the movie fell flat. Strangely enough, I was distracted by Oldman's portrayal of a dwarf...I kept wondering how they made him look so small instead of concentrating on the story. I never did figure out what Peter Dinklage and Patricia Arquette's characters had to do with the story; perhaps just to show that little people have relationships with "normal" size people...I don't know. I thought Dinklage, Arquette, Oldman and Kate Beckinsale all turned in good performances, but somehow all of them couldn't save this movie.
