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.

terrible
25 January 2004 | by matco97See all my reviews

just saw this at sundance last night. absolutely horrid. people left mid movie in droves. quite possibly the worst acting (save G.O.) i've seen in years. best line-"does it hurt to be a little person?" maybe, maybe not. but it is quite painful to watch this movie.
