Storyline

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 20th Century Fox

Trivia

The opposition in both the first and last minor league game played wore uniforms that match the color scheme of the 1990s Vancouver Canucks. Their logo says they are the "Woodsmen" but the face in the logo resembles "Johnny Canuck", an original inspiration for the name "Canucks." See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Derek Thompson: I'm the Tooth Fairy.
Randy: Thought you said you were a vampire. You got some inconsistent mythology.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Great Family Film
19 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
