Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson dressed up as a fairy has got to be one of the more ridiculous images in recent movie history. That's just one of the things that makes Tooth Fairy hilarious. The movie is filled with witty (and sometimes corny) humor. The plot and character development also feel pretty natural. Indeed, even though the plot device of a boyfriend trying to win the love of his girlfriend's children has been used far too many times, it didn't feel stale.

Meanwhile, the toothfairy "kingdom" or whatever had a great combination of magic and sass. It's set up kind of like MI6 from James Bond - Julie Andrews even acts as the head tooth fairy. At the end of the day, it's kind of like The Santa Clause - but with wings and an attitude.

Nearly all of Dwayne Johnson's movies have been enjoyable, but this is the first time he's shown talent with acting. I've gotta say, he was pretty darn good in Tooth Fairy.

Johnson plays Derek, a professional hockey player with the nickname `The Tooth Fairy' which he was given for knocking out so many teeth on the ice. It's more than annoying in movies like this, where we know the character will eventually become the tooth fairy, and for some reason they feel the need to previously deem him with a strictly on the nose nickname; kind of like Tim Allen's character Scott Calvin having the same initials as Santa Clause, if you will. But I'm not a child, so my point here is irrelevant.

When Derek makes an un-wanted comment to his girlfriend's daughter about the tooth fairy not being real, he is sentenced to two weeks of `tooth fairy duty'. This sounds a little ridiculous, but we both know this film isn't aimed at you or me, but at the little ones. So looking at it from their point of view, it's on level with the plot of a great film like The Godfather or Saving Private Ryan, in comparison.

Derek's girlfriend is played by Ashley Judd and the harbinger of Derek's two weeks of doom, is a head fairy of sorts, played by Julie Andrews. There are plenty of humorous shenanigans to be had with Derek trying to cover up the fact that he is a tooth fairy, between his girlfriend and her two kids; which is to be expected.

While in `fairy land', Derek is met by a kind of Q character from the James Bond Franchise. His name is Jerry and he is played by none other, than the legendary Billy Crystal. Thank God he's back! Crystal is as enjoyable as ever, while him and Johnson exchange comedic moments back and forth while Derek is being given his fairy `instruments'; dog and cat repellent, magic fairy dust that will shrink you, etc.

Derek is also granted a humorous British side-kick / guardian angel named Tracy (Stephen Merchant). I don't know that I have ever seen this gentleman before, but I'm sure I haven't seen the last of him; he was hilarious. Jerry is a fairy who has been denied his wings and is forced to assist those sentenced to `tooth fairy duty.'

No it's not going to be the best movie of the year; but if you have even a smidgen of a sense of humor, you will at the very least smile.

/ Warning - may spoil the ending /

I am eleven years old, and I love to watch movies and the latest one I seen was The Tooth Fairy.

The reason why I like The Tooth Fairy because there is a lot of humor in this movie and the man has to be the tooth fairy for hurting his girlfriend's daughter's dreams, and he has to serve as a tooth fairy for that one reason. He has to learn the ways of being a tooth fairy, and to survive you got to handle the tooth.

It was really good, and I do not know why the critics gave it a C+ because I would have given it an A+. You should see it at least once or twice at the movie theater.

I love the special effects they did in the movie like how they made him look like he was tiny, and when he was on the kids bed about to put the tooth under his pillow it looked so real, and I do not know how they do it but that is how they make it look so real because if you knew how they made everything and that would spoil how they make it.

The movie is about a guy who has to be a tooth fairy and he can not let anyone know and he has to learn the ways and all the gadgets to use like the shrinking paste, invisibility spray, and amnesia dust, and etc. At the end when his time is up being the tooth fairy they have to make him forget he was the tooth fairy and while he was at his girlfriend's son's talent show during the song he asked her to marry him. "Awwwwww[...]"
At the end he learns true character and true heart.

Everyone said Schwarzenegger was miscast for Kindergarten Cop and yet it is one of the more popular films he made. His comic relief in movies like it and Twins and True Lies showed he had far more talent than he exhibited in movies like Commando [Blu-ray]. I think Dwayne Johnson is showing he is more than an action hero as well. I certainly like his toughness in movies like The Scorpion King [Blu-ray] and The Rundown [Blu-ray]. I have enjoyed everything I have seen him in so far, and although I love his action movies, I am entertained by his comedies as well. Another good one for the family here as he plays a mean hockey player that has to learn to respect peoples dreams including his own. He shows he can be tough but with a softer side as well. His ego takes a bruising and he learns the meaning of team player. Good quality DVD with a standard content. If you enjoyed this catch The Game Plan (Full Screen Edition) and Race to Witch Mountain (Single-Disc Edition).

I thought this movie would be so corny that I would have to turn it off after a few minutes, but to my surprise I really liked it! It's genuinely funny and fairly unpredictable. I was very pleasantly surprised. It's actually not just for kids, adults will enjoy this one as well.

I remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger would supplement his action flicks with the occasional comedy. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson probably needs to do the opposite. He's been doing so many kid comedies - or it seems like it - that he's in danger of losing his action hero credentials. Thank goodness, for the versatility of his film career, that FASTER is coming out soon. Meanwhile, TOOTH FAIRY will make the kids chortle. The grown-ups with them will just have to put up with it.

The Rock plays a long-in-the-tooth ex-NHL hockey player who's been reduced to playing in the minor league. What he's still got is his pride and his swishy moniker. An enforcer with the reputation for knocking out his opponents' teeth, Derek Thompson is known as the Tooth Fairy (which, by the way, is a nickname I don't think a real hockey player would ever consent to be saddled with). But our guy has been known to yell in the rink: "You can't handle the tooth!" If you've seen THE GAME PLAN, then Derek Thompson will be familiar since he's cut from the same cocky mold as Joe Kingman. There's a bit of petty in Derek. His advice to one adoring kid fan: "Lower your expectations. That's how you're gonna be happy."

One evening, while babysitting his girlfriend's daughter, a peevish Derek commits the bush league move of (almost) telling the little girl that tooth fairies don't exist. For his intent, Derek receives a summons from the Department of Dissemination of Disbelief. Turns out that magic does exist. As punishment for nearly dashing the dreams of a little girl, Derek is consigned to serve a two-week-long stint as an honest-to-gosh tooth fairy. Our hockey player would really rather not do this, but the tooth fairy godmother - as played by a steely, not-to-be-effed-with Julie Andrews - is impossible to disobey. When Derek attempts to give her lip, she cuts him off: "You just interrupted me again while I was admonishing you for interrupting me." And our guy is cowed. Off he goes, extracting teeth from under the pillows of sleeping tykes, armed with his dainty pouch heavy with invisibility sprays, shrinking pastes, and amnesia powders. Oh, the Rock.

The film throws a crumb down the hockey fan's way by introducing a side story involving Derek's being tasked with protecting the Lansing Ice Wolves' newest star player on the ice. You can imagine how thrilled our dream dasher is. But this means that there are scenes devoted to hockey being played, and somewhere in there Derek comes to realize that he may not be as washed up as he thinks.

It says something about how the Rock is so secure about his self-image that he allows people to dress him in tutus and feathery wings and pink slippers. Nowadays he's about as edgy as Carrie Underwood. Like I said, I'm glad FASTER is coming out soon. TOOTH FAIRY has its genuinely funny moments but they don't come often enough. The emotional beats feel really recycled. I guess the Hollywood power brokers still think that the masses haven't gotten fed up yet with a petulant Dwayne Johnson languishing in comedy land. The schmaltz arrives early and sets roots like a bad house guest. For a jerk, Derek eventually gets to bonding with just about everyone in the cast, including his girlfriend's surly son (who can improbably shred like Clapton) and with Tracy, his annoying tooth fairy case worker. It's all executed with the subtlety of a Superman punch. Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews are wasted. I won't even go into Billy Crystal (wasted - in fact, awful). If you want a premise like this done better, take a peek at THE SANTA CLAUSE. No, TOOTH FAIRY does not get a big boy pound. But the 10-and-under kids will eat it up.

I like Dwayne Johnson in movies but this was a little more corny than I thought it would be. Though, I still did like it. Seeing Dwayne is a tootoo is a Kodak moment. I am happy that I purchased this movie.

Obviously, I also believe that one shouldn't get so carried away with their arrogance and let down other people just because they don't believe in something. In this case, THE ROCK did an unbelievable role as MR. GRINCH and surprised a lot of his fans including me as being the TOOTHFAIRY. I agree that some parts in this movie must get to a lot of parents and try to make THE ROCK look like a bad person, but the whole concept of this story can be judged positively. WHEN SOMEONE GETS A CHANCE TO REDEEM THEMSELVES AND THEIR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS, HEY JUST TAKE IT BECAUSE WHO KNOWS WHAT KIND OF SURPRISES ARE IN STORE FOR THEM.

This was nothing fabulous, but good....something that will entertain your teenage-ish kids and yourself. Derek is a hockey player called the Tooth Fairy. He has kind of a "dream killer" and arrogant attitude. One night he almost spoils the truth regarding the tooth fairy to his girlfriends daughter. As punishment he must serve as a tooth fairy himself for a month. Derek, with help from his fairy counselor, Tracy learn how to be a good tooth fairy and how to have faith in the "what if." Some funny lines, heart warming moments, and Julie Andrews!
