The scenes where Katherine is flying all over the world to retrieve missing baby teeth were shot on a green screen. Kirstie Alley was then hung by a safety harness and wires to make it look like she could fly. The wires were edited out so that it seemed like Kirstie knew how to fly. Cindy Ruth Thomas then did the scenes where Katherine landed so that Kirstie Alley wouldn't get hurt. After this Kirstie Alley would say her lines. See more »

Dr. Katherine Lewis:
Oh, it can't be that easy!
If you can do the first few steps of the YMCA, piece of cake! Well, personally I've found being dead helps too.

Pretty good movie in which a self-absorbed dentist(Kirstie Alley)who ends up in Limbo after being hit by a car. While waiting in Limbo, she has to work as The Tooth Fairy. She hates her job at first, but ends up getting involved in the lives of the kids. This is a big no-no, because it's against the rules to meddle, and her boss (Played wickedly by Lynn Redgrave)is just itching to have her punished. The Punishment? A one way trip to Hell (In a Hellivator, I guess). In the end, Alley learns to care for others and to allow herself to love. This was actually better than I thought it would be and is fun for all ages. Worth a rental or to add to your collection. Great performances by pretty much everyone and a great directing job by Melanie Mayron.
