A couple of early posters for Dwayne Johnson’s latest, the kiddie comedy “The Tooth Fairy”. What’s it all about? My guess is that Johnson is a uber tough guy with a secret heart of gold, who learns to let go of his steely exterior to appreciate life and what not. A kid is probably involved as well. Once you read the brief plot outline below, the whole thing sounds like a bad South Park episode. In fact, I’m sure I remember they did something about a hockey coach and some ill kids once…
A bad deed on the part of a tough minor-league hockey player (Johnson) results in an unusual sentence: He must serve one week as a real-life tooth fairy.
Johnson is the fairy. Helping him out are Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews, Billy Crystal, Brandon T. Jackson, Josh Emerson, Alex Ferris, Juno Ruddell, and Stephen Merchant. Michael Lembeck directs.
Your kids will bug you to go see it January 22, 2010.
