  • Summary: Derek Thompson is a hard-charging hockey player whose nickname comes from his habit of separating opposing players from their bicuspids. When Derek discourages a youngster's dreams, he's sentenced to one week's hard labor as a real tooth fairy, complete with the requisite tutu, wings and magic wand. At first, Derek "can't handle the tooth" - bumbling and stumbling as he tries to furtively wing his way through strangers' homes...doing what tooth fairies do. But as Derek slowly adapts to his new position, he begins to rediscover his own forgotten dreams. (20th Century Fox) Expand

    British comic Stephen Merchant (Extras), exudes an easier charm as a goofy fairyland caseworker who harbors big dreams of his own.
  3. Sorry to disappoint anyone who saw the cast list of this film and presumed Julie Andrews was going to play the horrific serial killer Tooth Fairy from the Hannibal Lecter movies.

    Johnson seems perfectly happy coasting through bland mediocrities. It used to be that his former career as a wrestler was his biggest obstacle to becoming a Hollywood star--now, it appears to be laziness.
  5. Michael Lembeck directs with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, pounding every joke and cliche until they are flat, flat, flat.
  6. How many screenwriters does it take to screw in this dim bulb? Five – no joke – and another one credited with “story by.”

    The only apparent reason Tooth Fairy exists at all is to squeeze tough-guy ex-wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson into tights and a tutu. As comic ideas go, that doesn't stretch much further than the poster.

    Tooth fairy has some cleaver diologe but it doesnt make up for the ending that a 5 year old could figure out. Tooth fairy is strictly a rental and many people over 14 really wont like this movie. Expand

    Just another movie for kids. Weak, weak, weak... The Rock does not have a good perfomance, just Stephen Merchant (who a admire deeply) did a acceptable performance. Expand
