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

In 1993, the script was written as a vehicle for Arnold Schwarzenegger. About a drill instructor, who's father dies and must carry on his legacy as the tooth fairy. However, Schwarzenegger chose the script for Last Action Hero (1993) instead and the project went into limbo for years. See more »

Quotes

Derek Thompson: I'm the Tooth Fairy.
Randy: Thought you said you were a vampire. You got some inconsistent mythology.

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 »

The reason I don't go to movies any more
30 January 2010 | by rory-100See all my reviews

I'll bet this movie would have a negative rating except the great majority of reviewers with more than two brain cells to rub together saw the ten line minimum and thought it wasn't worth the three minutes it would take to vamp so the truth could be posted.

There is not one moment of inspiration here, not an iota of spontaneity, heart, or humor in this dog of a cliché-ridden stench bomb. It's painfully sappy without a moment of true human sentiment.

Believe me, the positive reviews are all from crew members desperately trying to save residuals, or from Billy Crystal's extended family.

Ten lines to review it are nine lines too many. The bottom line for this stench bomb is a one liner: A worthless piece of steaming offal.
