Larry the Cable Guy,
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

The players' uniforms mimic those of the Vancouver Canucks away jersey. The design of the wolf is very close to the orca whale that is the current (as of 2012) Canucks mascot and the main focal point of their logo. Also, the Canucks' AHL minor-league affiliate happen to be the Chicago Wolves, although they have a logo completely separate from that of the Canucks. See more »
When the kids are asking for Derek Thompson's (Dwayne Johnson) autograph, you can plainly hear many of the kids yelling "Mr. Johnson". 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 »
When i first looked at this movie i thought along the same lines as some of the previous reviews it couldn't mount to anything special, also wondering why the likes of billy crystal put his name to it. But i decided that i would test it on my three girls its a great test as one is three, one seven, and one ten so depending on the movie we tend to lose them one by one starting with the youngest but to my surprise they all went the distance and my three year old asked for it again not twenty mins after it had finished so if you have a mixed age group wanting to watch it i hope this helps.
The movie itself isn't all that bad it has enough momentum from start to finish to keep you interested from an adults point of view.!!
