Here's a trailer for a film called "Tip Toes" - allegedly released in 2003 - starring Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, and Gary Oldman ("in the role of a lifetime" according to the narrator) as a dwarf!

It certainly looks like a real film - but the whole idea of Oldman playing some kind of "forced perspective"-CGI dwarf is SO outrageous, that the actual movie probably never saw the light of day. And the mind boggles as to why real dwarf Peter Dinklange - an excellent actor who is in the movie - wasn't hired to play the Oldman role.

There is some conjecture in the YouTube comments for this video that the whole thing might just be an elaborate joke. That would explain how porn star Bridget the Midget was given what appears to be such a prominent role in a major motion picture.

But until proven otherwise, we'll just have to assume this sucker was a real movie, and a really really bad idea for one at that.
