Picture the pitch meeting...
"Okay it's a romance, rom com, feel good... it's got Matt McConnaughey in it, all the girls love Matt, and Kate Beckinsale... who doesn't love Kate? And it's a rom com and they have their differences and will they? won't they? and what have you... and Gary Oldman plays a midget..."
GARY OLDMAN PLAYS A MIDGET!!!!
Not as horribly wrong as the Wayan's brothers Little Man but still very far on the wrong side fo right.
