"Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson dressed up as a fairy has got to be one of the more ridiculous images in recent movie history. That's just one of the things that makes Tooth Fairy hilarious. The movie is filled with witty (and sometimes corny) humor. The plot and character development also feel pretty natural. Indeed, even though the plot device of a boyfriend trying to win the love of his girlfriend's children has been used far too many times, it didn't feel stale.
Meanwhile, the toothfairy "kingdom" or whatever had a great combination of magic and sass. It's set up kind of like MI6 from James Bond - Julie Andrews even acts as the head tooth fairy. At the end of the day, it's kind of like The Santa Clause - but with wings and an attitude."

"/ Warning - may spoil the ending /
I am eleven years old, and I love to watch movies and the latest one I seen was The Tooth Fairy.
The reason why I like The Tooth Fairy because there is a lot of humor in this movie and the man has to be the tooth fairy for hurting his girlfriend's daughter's dreams, and he has to serve as a tooth fairy for that one reason. He has to learn the ways of being a tooth fairy, and to survive you got to handle the tooth.
It was really good, and I do not know why the critics gave it a C+ because I would have given it an A+. You should see it at least once or twice at the movie theater.
I love the special effects they did in the movie like how they made him look like he was tiny, and when he was on the kids bed about to put the tooth under his pillow it looked so real, and I do not know how they do it but that is how they make it look so real because if you knew how they made everything and that would spoil how they make it.
The movie is about a guy who has to be a tooth fairy and he can not let anyone know and he has to learn the ways and all the gadgets to use like the shrinking paste, invisibility spray, and amnesia dust, and etc. At the end when his time is up being the tooth fairy they have to make him forget he was the tooth fairy and while he was at his girlfriend's son's talent show during the song he asked her to marry him. "Awwwwwwwww."
At the end he learns true character and true heart.
Not a bad little family movie.

"Cookie cutter plot about tooth fairies and childhood faith in such. Even Julie Andrews seems to be phoning it in. But The Rock goes all out and so does his beanstalk British case worker/mentor/wish-he-was-one. Has some cute moments and The Rock's smile lights up the screen like I haven't seen since Maurice Chevalier (albeit without the continental slyness). For the junior set it's a fun little family movie...for the adults it can't quite make you forget that missing tooth despite Billy Crystal showing up in an energetic mini-supporting role and again in the end credits. I just had the feeling when it was all over that something was missing besides the tooth!!! But the kids loved it and The Rock in a tutu is their new hero...and I guess when all is said and done...that's what it's all about. (for the tweeners there's an interesting turn by Ryan Sheckler (skateboarder) as the hotshot up and coming hockey player)"
