Weeeeell, I take it back.
Ya’ll really don’t. Not the whole movie. Just stick to the trailer that’s making its way around the blogs and save yourselves 90 minutes of the “Up With Midgets!” message that TIPTOES has to offer.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against little people, but TIPTOES is no UNDER THE RAINBOW! Heh…UNDER THE RAINBOW…why isn’t that on dvd yet?!
Anyway, my friend Dave over at SMELLS LIKE SCREEN SPIRIT hit the nail on the head when he said he felt that TIPTOES was just disappointing. The plot, the direction, Gary Oldman‘s “role of a lifetime“…all of it…just plain disappointing.
And I couldn’t agree more.I mean, the filmmakers had so many opportunities to make this one a winner…at one point, Kate Beckinsale says to Matthew McConaughey, “So you had a circle jerk with a bunch of little people? I would love to see that!”
Me too! Come on! Seriously, why the fuck didn’t Matthew Bright throw that scene in there?!
Oh, and you have Bridget The Midget in your fucking movie!
Hellooooo…She’s an American erotic film actress with dwarfism for Christ’s sake!
I know it’s too much to ask for Matthew and Gary to Eiffel Tower* her, but at least show some naked midget flesh!
Look, in my humble opinion, if you have a little person that doesn’t mind parading her tiny assets around on film, take full advantage of that!
What’s so difficult about this?
Okay, I’ve said my piece…so, in closing:
Watch the trailer to TIPTOES, not the movie.
*Oh, in case you’re wondering…this is The Eiffel Tower:
