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

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 »
I enjoyed watching "The Rock's" new movie. It is a kids' movie and for what it strives to be it fully delivers.
Dwayne Johnson plays a veteran hockey player, that was denied his chance with the pro's due to a shoulder injury. This seems to mark his life and makes him shatter dreams. This reason brings him to be judged by faeries and sentenced to tooth fairy duty. The problems and lessons that occur from now on will make him rethink his way of life and put it in order.
Great film for the kids, good film to watch if you are an adult. Recommend it if you want to sit down for a few moments and have a few good laughs.
