On Tuesday night’s (Feb. 22) “Tosh.0” on Comedy Central, Tosh did a Spoiler Alert segment where he talked through the plot of a movie called “Tiptoes” starring Matthew McConaughey, Gary Oldman and Kate Beckinsale. Warning: The video contains adult language and mature content.

The movie is about twin brothers, Steve (McConaughey) and Rolfe (Oldman), who happens to be a little person. Steve’s girlfriend Carol (Beckinsale) becomes pregnant and they fear the baby will have inherited the little person gene. Then Carol finds herself falling for Rolfe.

Of course, Tosh’s retelling of the story is 1000x funnier and he had people madly scrambling to find out if this movie is real. Personally, we thought for sure it had to be made up, like he used some other footage of McConaughey punching a wall and he got Beckinsale to record that tiny snippet to give him credibility.

But it’s real, which is kind of awesome. It was screened at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival and also stars Patricia Arquette and David Alan Grier. In case you still aren’t convinced, here is the trailer. “When the going gets rough, it’s only the size of your heart that counts.”
