This is an obvious labor of love for the filmmakers and their collective eye for capturing the beauty, grace and, often, humor of their many dances (with Dom and Fiona) with geometric precision....

Feels like a relic from the Seventies, but it does have funny moments.

Truth is, Tooth Fairy is a very decent family film -- cute but never sickly, funny but never smug -- that's an ideal half-term afternoon-killer.

Johnson is an eminently likeable lead and the impressive supporting cast, including Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal, makes up for Johnson's lack of acting finesse.

The plot is as predictable as they come but it's the gentle playing that elevates this from formulaic kids' fare to a genuinely enjoyable family yarn.

Stylish and distinctive, The Time That Remains is worth seeing for its surreal humour but it's difficult to engage with on an emotional level.

The feeling upon walking out of Tooth Fairy closely resembles the notion one often has upon leaving the dentist -- that wasn't nearly as bad as expected.

Somewhat silly and cheesy, but nonetheless amusing, whimsical and delightfully goofy with inspirational, feel-great messages for everyone young and old to appreciate.

Tooth Fairy has more than enough pratfalls and silly one-liners to amuse kids and their accompanying grown-ups.

Tooth Fairy could have been completely forgettable had it not been for the comic timing of [Stephen] Merchant.

What can I say, I'm just a sucker for a large, muscular man dressed in a tutu.

It pains me to say that I actually enjoyed watching this film. Yes, it is sappy, cliche and unbelievably predictable but The Rock's character is so likable and funny.

One of the film's charms is the way it carries childhood mythology to its logical, if absurd extreme.

Kids won't mind any of The Tooth Fairy's flaws and will find the sight of burly Johnson in a pink tutu hilarious. Parents get a couple of clever gags that will make them forgive the filmmakers. And if we all remember to floss, everybody wins.

Once again, the fun is seeing Johnson playing an arrogant jock who is schooled by just about everyone.

Tooth Fairy isn't half bad, outfitted with gently funny high jinks that place its brawny lead in progressively ridiculous circumstances.

A serendipitous combination of star (Dwayne Johnson), material and director (Michael Lembeck), this tale of an arrogant hockey player, forced to serve time in wings and a pastel-colored tutu, scores a goal for kids and adults alike.

The hilarious thing about Tooth Fairy is that it is a genuinely camp comedy.

It's one of those reliable old cast-against-type comic turns that sends the character on a funny, predictable journey of sobering revelation.
