A bad deed on the part of a tough minor-league hockey player (Dwayne Johnson) results in an unusual sentence: he must serve one week as a real-life tooth fairy.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Dwayne Johnson brings the full force of his charm (and his appropriately pale chompers) to the title role, but flat direction and a committee-written script render The Tooth Fairy unacceptably dull.

Common Sense Says
Sweet but uninspired fantasy is fine for families.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this fantasy comedy starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is generally age-appropriate for young tweens and up. Like most family comedies featuring action stars, there's some rude language that you won't want your kids repeating (mostly insults like "shut up" and "fool") and violence -- in this case, players slamming into each other during hockey games (in one scene, a player ends up with a missing tooth). Hockey is a violent sport, so on the ice, there are a fair number of falls and tussles -- one resulting in shattered glass and a tooth flying artfully out of a player's mouth. Off the ice, there are many comedic pratfalls and chases. A character mentions she doesn't appreciate physical contact; a male character says that he thinks she really does. The Rock's surly character ultimately transforms into a sweet guy who believes in the power of dreams.
