Larry the Cable Guy,
Having recovered from wounds received in a failed rescue operation, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
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 dreamsWritten by

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 »

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 »
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.
