In one scene, the Tooth Fairy finds a mouse beneath the pillow and identifies it as "one of us, European division".

Every tooth collected by the Tooth Fairy has roots, like a pulled adult tooth, but most of the teeth are supposed to be baby teeth, those that have wiggled loose after being displaced by permanent ones. They should be hollow shells without roots. See more »

The first major family flick of the holidays, this Avengers-for-children boasts the most epic line-up of characters you're likely to see this Summer: Santa (Alec Baldwin), Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), Jack Frost (Chris Pine) and the dream-making Sandman going up against fear himself, Pitch Black (Jude Law). It's a neat concept to begin with, but Dreamworks amps up the fun by contorting our preconceptions of these icons especially the Easter Bunny, here played as an ocker warrior and delivering the goods in humour, emotion and action. It goes a moralistic touch too far on occasion, and the story is certainly predictable, but the overwhelming sense of giddy excitement running through the movie's veins outweighs any plot contrivances or missteps that occur. A sweet start to the festive season for kids of all ages including those in adulthood.
