Derek Thompson (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) 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

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 Tooth Fairy's first assignment, he makes his escape on the boy's skateboard. As we see him heading down the hallway, he is as tall as a low table, but seconds later, he is clearly still only six inches tall. 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 »
The movie is an enjoyable flick, for kids, teenagers and adults altogether. The score the movie has received here doesn't do it justice, as it is A movie you won't end up saying that it was A waste of you're time but an effortless pleasant way to pass an hour and A half. The only thing I didn't "dig" about this movie was the casting of Ashley Judd, yes she is pretty and A good actress but she didn't seem fit to play The Rock girlfriend (watch it and you will understand why), well maybe I am wrong or maybe it was the hair style and clothing she wore anyway that was the only casting I would change. I would give this movie A score of 6.5 in it's category.
