Tooth Fairy

Critics Consensus

Dwayne Johnson brings the full force of his charm (and his appropriately pale chompers) to the title role, but flat direction and a committee-written script render The Tooth Fairy unacceptably dull.

Movie Info

Rough-and-tumble hockey player Derek Thompson (Dwayne Johnson) is a terror on the ice, earning the nickname "Tooth Fairy" by separating opposing players from their choppers. When Derek dashes the dreams of a young fan, he is quickly sentenced to serve time as a real tooth fairy, complete with wings and magic wand. Though he can't "handle the tooth" at first, Derek's new job helps him to slowly rediscover the dreams that he gave up long ago.

  • It has a terrible screenplay and you get the feeling that Johnson could be a much better light comedian than this, given a better chance.

    June 3, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • Although the film gets over the preposterousness of its own premise early enough, the tooth/truth puns are exhausted to a fault, assumedly aimed at giving adults something to titter at.

    May 28, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • It has the plastic, disinfected aroma of something straight off the assembly line.

  • The one element that lifts this above utter tedium is the presence of Stephen Merchant as tooth-fairy administrator Tracy. That he manages to come away with his dignity intact is testament to his skill as a comedian.

  • Is there anything else to say except skip it?

  • 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.

    It was nowhere near good but you get to see The Rock in pink tutu. Why not?

    Not bad really, Some corny acting and the film itself seems to just drag along but I must admit I laughed a few times and Dwayne didn't do a bad job I just wish he would stick to what he's best at it just don't suit him in these films even though he did a good job, On the whole an ok film to watch with the kids who will love it.

    There are bad movies and good movies, this is way worse than bad movies, this doesn't belong in a family household.

    The rock is really cooking up with the charm. His film The Tooth Fairy seems to be uncooked with cliche'd gags, predictable plot, cliche'd characters and awful dialogs.
