Tooth Fairy Movie Rating: 2

Derek Thompson (played by Dwayne Johnson) is a mean-spirited hockey enforcer who earns the nickname “Tooth Fairy” because of all the canines and bicuspids he sends flying into the crowd. When Derek suggests to his girlfriend’s six-year-old that there might not be a tooth fairy, he gets sentenced to a two-week stint as a tooth fairy.

Fated To Fairy Land

Non-believers like Derek have hit Fairy Land hard—so hard they’ve even had to downsize the dragon division! To make up for the capital lost to cavities, the fairies are stuck enlisting the likes of mean guys like Derek. Once in Fairy Land, Derek meets the team of fairies that will aid him in tooth hunting:

  • Lily (played by Julie Andrews) is the Tooth Fairy Matriarch who explains the rules to Derek—he’s being punished for killing the dreams of children and he has to keep Fairy Land a secret or risk serving a longer sentence.
  • Tracy (played by Stephen Merchant) is Derek’s wingless caseworker who helps him through his training and has a bad case of wing envy.
  • Jerry (played by Billy Crystal) is a wise old fairy who hooks Derek up with the tools for the tooth trade—cat repellent, shrinking cream, invisibility spray, amnesia dust and more.

  • The Bottom Line

    Dwayne Johnson plays a great straight man and the sight of his muscled self in a pink tutu works for a couple laughs—but just a couple. Despite a strong showing by Johnson, the same sight gags get stale and you’ll almost wish you were sitting in a dentist chair instead of sitting through this formulaic flick.

    Alright I'm sure lots of us here are familiar with the anime known as "Attack On Titan" it is consider the "Walking Dead" of anime. I wouldn't say that is too far from the truth. The plot line is original, the characters are well thought out and some just B.A. So I have made a forum to discuss certain issues that people either may want to explain about the anime or ask questions if they are confused in anyway shape or form.
