Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a manly man, a badass if you will, who is not necessarily the greatest guy in the world. Plus, he hates kids and stuff. Then one day he’s turned into the tooth fairy, tutu and all, and our tough guy must learn what’s most important in his life, like, you know, kids, and Ashley Judd, and soft, gooey, cuddly stuff. Did I mention the kids? Yeah, plenty of those in this one, too. “Tooth Fairy” trailer below.
Derek Thompson (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.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews, Billy Crystal, Chase Ellison, Brandon T. Jackson, Stephen Merchant, Josh Emerson, Alex Ferris, Ryan Sheckler, Juno Ruddell, and directed by Michael Lembeck.
