There is a lot of people who view this film and try to dumb it down and say how awful the Rock is. Let me say this; a film about morals and dreams is far from dumb. It is fun, light-hearted and has a clear message behind it.Dwayne Johnson is known for his brooding physical prowess and many action style formatted films. Here he portrays Derek Johnson a minor league hockey player known as "The Tooth Fairy" for his heavy hits. Due to an injury he has been remanded to this level. Ashley Judd portrays his girlfriend Carly with 2 kids one who adores him and one who does not. Along the way Derek smashes one of the kids ideas of dreams and fantasy by saying they are not real. As a result he is summoned to Fairyland and has to be remanded to being the REAL tooth fairy until he realizes what he has done.The humor is fun and the light hearted style of the film is brought to life by Johnson and his performance. It's a kids film but with family value. I found it entertaining and well done and give it a well deserved 7 out of 10

This movie isn't actually that bad. Dwayne Johnson plays a former ice hockey player who tells kids not to go for their dreams in life because they'll never make it and will end up disappointed, that mindset blurs the lines between realism and pessimism.By the end of the movie it becomes apparent that Dwayne Johnson's character has a change of heart thanks to the kid of the lady he is dating. The message of this movie is clearly to go for your dreams and goals in life regardless of how unrealistic they may seem.The actors performances are okay, the dialogue was fine, Overall a watchable film.

Tooth Fairy (2010): Dir: Michael Lembeck / Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd, Stephen Merchant, Julie Andrews, Billy Crystal: Moronic family film about a reality check, only its fantasy elements wayward that theme. Frankly, it is the audience whom will receive the biggest reality check when they realize that they spent ten dollars on this tooth decay. Dwayne Johnson plays Derek Thompson, a hockey player called the Tooth Fairy. He is called this because he knocks teeth out of opposing players. When his attitude is reduce to crushing dreams, he is given a summons to become a tooth fairy. Plot is preposterous and structure is repetitious to Thompson receiving inconvenient calls into fairy action and disastrous visitations to retain a tooth. Predictable and boring with director Michael Lembeck doing his best despite the lame special effects. Johnson applies his charm and actually appears to be having fun despite appearing in a tutu. Ashley Judd as his girlfriend is completely wasted. Here is an actress who not long before was a lead player. This is a very bad career move. Stephen Merchant as Thompson's contact Tracy comes off as creepy. He desires to earn wings and become a real tooth fairy. What he really should desire is a new agent. Julie Andrews as the fairy Queen is a nice touch but flat role. Billy Crystal gives Johnson the instructions he needs in order to be an effective tooth fairy. It is unfortunate that he could not gravitate him towards a better script. This is not a film that anyone involved will want mentioned during any career honor broadcast. This cavity laden crap should be pulled from existence. Score: 2 ½ / 10


Even though it's for kids, this movie turned out much better than I thought it would. The Rock pulls off the role of the Tooth Fairy quite well. He plays, Derek Thompson, a hockey player known as the Tooth Fairy because he knocks a lot of teeth out. He has a girlfriend played by Ashley Judd, why her I don't know because it is a very minor role, whom has 2 kids. One night Derek almost slips up and tells the young daughter there is no tooth fairy. But her mom saves the day. That night Derek is summoned to fairy land and in a unique way is given things for fairies to use and trained to fly. I liked this part the best. Billy Crystal cameos as Jimmy, the fairy whom gives him the shrinking paste, fairy dust, etc... Amnesia dust is great.So Derek is sentenced to 2 weeks as a tooth fairy by the head fairy, Julie Andrews. Of course, he learns valuable lessons over this time.I also liked the parts where he goes into people's homes in various ways. It was funny, we all need invisible spray.FINAL VERDICT: I liked it and recommend it.
