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

The players' uniforms mimic those of the Vancouver Canucks away jersey. The design of the wolf is very close to the orca whale that is the current (as of 2012) Canucks mascot and the main focal point of their logo. Also, the Canucks' AHL minor-league affiliate happen to be the Chicago Wolves, although they have a logo completely separate from that of the Canucks. See more »
During the opening scenes a member of the opposing team loses a tooth due to Derek hitting him, the area announcer says that it was an incisor. However, the tooth shown flying in the air was a molar. 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.
