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

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 »
I don't know what the rest of these reviewers were watching but I took my 11-year-old to see this at the theater; and she used her hard-earned money to buy it on DVD as soon as it became available.
It's a feel-good story of a jaded and cynical man who realizes that it's okay to dream; it's okay to believe in things you can't see and hope for a better tomorrow. Why on earth is this a bad thing? Sure, parts of the movie rate an 11 out of 10 on the cheese-o-meter but, once again, why is this a bad thing?
No, I don't think that this is a good date movie, or something that a bunch of adults would find entertaining, but when watching it with a group of kids, or just one 11-year-old little girl, it's a winner.
