I don't know what the rest of these reviewers were watching but I took my 11-year-old to see this at the theater; and she used her hard-earned money to buy it on DVD as soon as it became available. It's a feel-good story of a jaded and cynical man who realizes that it's okay to dream; it's okay to believe in things you can't see and hope for a better tomorrow. Why on earth is this a bad thing? Sure, parts of the movie rate an 11 out of 10 on the cheese-o-meter but, once again, why is this a bad thing? No, I don't think that this is a good date movie, or something that a bunch of adults would find entertaining, but when watching it with a group of kids, or just one 11-year-old little girl, it's a winner.
This is a cute film. I enjoyed it. I think it did what it was supposed to do, it made me laugh and was easy to watch. One of the few bad things I have to say about it is that it's formulaic, a little long and you know what the outcome will be before it gets there. Regardless of that, Dwayne, Julie, Billy and the English fellow do their part to make the film worth while, while Ms. Judd and the child actors make the story come together. There's a fair amount of whimsy and reality which makes it great for children and adults who are children at heart, the little cameo by Seth Macfarlane doesn't hurt either. All it in all it's not the best, but it's not the worst.
So what are you going to take the kids to see? Legion? This movie was a delight for kids - we were in a packed theater in San Francisco (well, actually Daly City), and the room was half-full of very young kids. Their spontaneous laughter at the slightest nonsense throughout the film was, in its own way, musical. And these reactions, without any "potty humor." I had never seen Rock in a movie, and barely knew who he was. But I do know Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal, and those two are enough to establish the picture's bona fides as cinema. The movie has enough site gags and silly talk to keep the kids involved, and enough in it to let the accompanying adults enjoy the moment too. It was cartoonish in execution and this without the typical special effects hammers usually found in fantasy movies. I enjoyed the hockey scenes, loved that every bad act had a satisfying response. I do have to laugh at some of the critics who apparently expect Ingmar Bergman touches in all movies, and frown on any non-political movie that doesn't need subtitles (at least to English-speakers). Note to the humorless: this is not high art and was not intended to be. It was a fun and funny send-up of what happens if you let cynicism govern your life and the rewards of reform. Go! Take the kids!
When i first looked at this movie i thought along the same lines as some of the previous reviews it couldn't mount to anything special, also wondering why the likes of billy crystal put his name to it. But i decided that i would test it on my three girls its a great test as one is three, one seven, and one ten so depending on the movie we tend to lose them one by one starting with the youngest but to my surprise they all went the distance and my three year old asked for it again not twenty mins after it had finished so if you have a mixed age group wanting to watch it i hope this helps. The movie itself isn't all that bad it has enough momentum from start to finish to keep you interested from an adults point of view.!!
Even though it's for kids, this movie turned out much better than I thought it would. The Rock pulls off the role of the Tooth Fairy quite well. He plays, Derek Thompson, a hockey player known as the Tooth Fairy because he knocks a lot of teeth out. He has a girlfriend played by Ashley Judd, why her I don't know because it is a very minor role, whom has 2 kids. One night Derek almost slips up and tells the young daughter there is no tooth fairy. But her mom saves the day. That night Derek is summoned to fairy land and in a unique way is given things for fairies to use and trained to fly. I liked this part the best. Billy Crystal cameos as Jimmy, the fairy whom gives him the shrinking paste, fairy dust, etc... Amnesia dust is great. So Derek is sentenced to 2 weeks as a tooth fairy by the head fairy, Julie Andrews. Of course, he learns valuable lessons over this time. I also liked the parts where he goes into people's homes in various ways. It was funny, we all need invisible spray. FINAL VERDICT: I liked it and recommend it.
