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 »

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 »

Cute And Silly Isn't The Worst Thing You Can Say About A Kids Movie
1 October 2012 | by (Durham Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

So this is not a great movie, and it will never be mistaken for one. I'd agree with that assessment. But it is kind of cute and it is very silly, and when you look at it as a movie that's basically there to appeal to kids (because there's really nothing in it for adults) you have to at least concede that cute and silly is not a bad combination for a kids movie. So this may not be great, but it's not really bad, in that it serves its purpose: it's a kid-friendly movie. Nothing wrong with that.

Now, from an adult's point of view, the story which revolves around hockey player Derek Thompson - played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - being sentenced to work as a tooth fairy for a couple of weeks as punishment for "disseminating disbelief" is pretty lame and the performances are generally forgettable. I was completely unconvinced of the need for the hockey angle, and frankly it was done badly. The on ice action was poorly portrayed (although the scene in which Thompson takes his revenge on the 18 year old whiz kid - Ryan Sheckler - was pretty funny) and, really, how could Thompson play 9 seasons without a single shot? 9 seasons without a goal maybe, but this guy seemed to get enough ice time, at least as an enforcer and bodyguard for his team's better players, so somewhere along the lines he's going to pick up the odd rebound and get a shot.

This is mildly humorous every now and then, and considering how silly it really is it has some surprisingly recognizable faces in the cast - including Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal. I'd give it a 4/10 - but it's not a bad choice to sit down and watch this with your kids.
