McConaughey and Beckinsale's hidden shame

by Eli Reyes

You have to watch this. This is real. I swear. I know it looks fake. But it's real.

Here's a movie that Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale would like you to never see. The two already well known actors starred in this 2003 romantic dramedy called Tiptoes. The film would end up being released direct to DVD... and with good reason!

Check out the beyond poorly cut together, and horribly narrated trailer. And a huge surprise awaits you... you'll never guess who else stars in this film.

Watch the trailer, and I'll rip it apart underneath as to not ruin the surprise.

Right? Did that freak you out? Are you wondering how this film slipped passed your radar? Me TOO!

I can't believe that's Gary Oldman walking around on his knees. That made my jaw drop. Patricia Arquette(Medium) starred as well. This movie had some star power. McConaughey was already a chick-flick leading man, with the Wedding Planner under his belt and having just released  How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. And a pre plastic-surgery Beckinsale should have been fairly bankable after Pearl Harbor.

Even though you've seen the trailer,  check out the synopsis:

Carol is an artist, Steven trains firefighters. They've lived together for months and plan to marry soon, except that Steve's left out an important detail about himself and his chromosomes: his parents, twin brother, and many of his relatives are dwarfs. Carol learns this when Steve's brother Rolfe drops by, the day after she discovers she's pregnant. Why hasn't he told her about his family? She calls on them, and they take her to their hearts. But tensions mount between the lovers as she believes he's ambivalent and angry about his family, and he thinks she's romanticizing the life and many health problems of little people. Can they get over these emotional barriers?

What they leave out in this description that I've read in others is... Spoiler Ahead>>>>>> Carol finds herself falling for Rolfe. Yeah baby!

This trailer is beyond awful. The only narration that is worse it Ashton Kutcher's in the Spread Trailer. That voice over wouldn't pass in an 80's movie, and this was 2003.

Can I ask a question? Why is Matthew McConauhey Jewish? That's as believable as making him Asian, or a talking dragon.

I've read some reviews for this, and some people seem to like it. They say Oldman is good and they deal with some important issues, like tolerance and acceptance. The rest of the reviews completely tear apart the movie.

I need to see this now...
