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 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 »
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 »
This is a great family film; it would be very easy to point the low vote finger at this film if i forgot that this is aimed at the Family market. We watched this film with our three children aged from 9 to 16 and they and us enjoyed it very much, especially our 9 year old as he is one of the rare kids nowadays of his age that still believe in tooth fairy's. The Rock (as we know him) is his usual as the troubled sports professional with no family ties and subsequent struggles to deal with the associated responsibilities of relationships with children (not his) from previous marriages, and in the time we live in this situation is one that many parents and children can relate to.
