Tip Toes

An unbelievable trailer for Tip Toes – a straight-to-DVD film starring Kate Beckinsale, Matthew McConaughey and Gary Oldman.

When films go straight-to-DVD, you might be forgiven for thinking they are cheesy Steven Seagal thrillers or low budget nonsense featuring actors you’ve never heard of.

But then there are films like Tip Toes.

This is a feature starring Gary OldmanKate BeckinsaleMatthew McConaughey and Peter Dinklage and is listed on the IMDb as being a 2003 film.

According to it’s DVD cover, it was also an official selection at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival (!).

Aside from the fact that the trailer plays like a warped update of Freaks, the voiceover appears to be taking the piss and the whole thing has the feel of some kind of acid-drenched hoax. 

What exactly happened here people?
