Larry the Cable Guy,
Disgraced Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
Derek Thompson is 'The Tooth Fairy,' a hard-charging minor league hockey player whose nickname comes from his habit of separating opposing players from their bicuspids. When Derek discourages a youngster's hopes, 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 Written by

When Derek and Tracy are starting the fairy fight, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson says "You want a shot at the title?" This is a reference to his former pro wrestling career in which he was a 7 time WWE champion. See more »

During the first set of ending credits, we see an epilogue of Derek playing hockey in a new team. Lily and Jerry (disguised) are in the audience. In order to take a better look at the game, Jerry shrinks himself and gets on the puck. He uses a cat horn to send the goalie away, and Derek's team wins. See more »
Tooth Fairy is a not bad kids movie starring Dwayne Johnson, Julie Andrews, and Billy Crystal
This was another silly time filler I decided to spend time watching with my movie theatre working friend. It stars Dwayne Johnson as a hockey player who gets the title nickname because of the teeth he knocks out when he scores. But when he nearly tells the daughter of a woman he's dating (Ashley Judd) what he thinks of that fairy tale, he gets summoned by a caseworker named Tracy (Stephen Merchant) to the head of Tooth Fairyland (Julie Andrews) for a two week penance of becoming one. Billy Crystal shows up as someone who provides all the material to become the tooth fairy. I'll stop there and just say there's some funny moments between Crystal and Johnson and quite a few with the former Rock and this Tracy person. And Andrews brings some stern yet gentle authority to her role. And there are some good lessons for the kiddies in the audience. So in summation, no great shakes, but Tooth Fairy is okay filler for 90 or so minutes...
