Brace yourself for a wonderful family film!
26 January 2007 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Catherine (Kirstie Alley) was born to follow in her dentist-father's footsteps. She does become a dentist and establishes a successful practice. However, she only has a few close friends and does not pursue the men who might glance her way. Catherine is more likely to spend an evening watching videos and eating popcorn than on a date. One day, she becomes the victim in a serious auto accident and ends up "in limbo", that is in a halfway station between heaven and hell! She is given the job of Tooth Fairy in order for heaven's authorities to make a further determination about which direction she should go. As Tooth Fairy, she not only learns to do a good job but also begins to realize what she missed out on in life. What will be her final destination? This is a darling family film. Alley is one fine comic performer and a lovely one at that. She looks beautiful in her fairy outfit and dances her way through the heavens to find her young charges. The plot is fun and the supporting actors, especially child-actor Ross M., are very fine. If you want to sit your family down to a film that will entertain both children and adults, in grand fashion, this is an outstanding choice. It has humor and good messages, with bite, that will put every viewer in a good, good mood indefinitely.
