Friday Films: Tooth Fairy {giveaway}

Oh, Dwayne Johnson.  WWE/WWF personality turned actor turned family film star.  Ok, let’s just say it…DIMPLES!

I’m glad we got that out of the way.  Now, let’s talk about one of his latest films — Tooth Fairy.


I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical about this film.  I mean, really, Dwayne Johnson in a pink tutu?  Is that right?  Well, I got over those preconceived notions real quick!

Tooth Fairy is a very fun film!  Humor – check.  Adventure – check. Morals and great lessons – oh, check!

The premise of the film is a hockey player, known for knocking out a tooth or two on the ice, who, after telling his girlfriend’s daughter that the tooth fairy doesn’t exist, is sentenced to “tooth-fairy duty”.  During his time as a tooth fairy, Derek (Dwayne Johnson) learns some important lessons about what is important in life, friendship, family, and himself.

One of my favorite parts about Tooth Fairy was the idea that sometimes we screw up as parents.  Sometimes we say the wrong thing at the wrong time.  We speak with without thinking.  We say things out of frustration or anger. It’s unfortunate when we say those things.  The key is what we say or do after we realize what we’ve done.  Do you just let time pass and dismiss what you did or do you own it?  Do you try to fix it?  Do you admit you were wrong?  Do you admit you were wrong to your kids?

That and the fact that Tooth Fairy takes place in Michigan (Lansing, to be specific)!  Yay Michigan!!!  Oh, and Julie Andrews!  How can you not love a film with Julie Andrews?


Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with Tooth Fairy!  What I thought was going to be a dorky movie turned out to be a really great family movie with some great lessons for both kids/teens and parents!

Tooth Fairy is currently on dvd and Blu-ray and even includes some great special features. My daughters loved “moving” with the Tooth Fairy Training Center and thought the Fairyoke was absolutely hilarious!

Stacey says…With a PG rating Tooth Fairy is a great family film and is a must see!

  • My oldest daughter DOES believe (although she did ask me yesterday where the tooth fairy gets her $ and if I was a “Mommy fairy”-hmmm…wondering what she is learning at school) Regardless, her fairy pays $3 in gold coins.

  • Shannon Follett

    Stacey, I could get Mom of the year from my kids if I win this!! This is one of our new favorite family movies. But, to answer your questions, yes, all 3 girls believe in the toothfairy. Especially, Sydnee who lost her 1st two teeth at the same time. Our toothfairy leaves $2 for the first tooth and $1 for each tooth after that. Except for Sydnee, who got $5 for losing her 1st two teeth at the same time.

  • My kids have no idea who the tooth fairy is yet. I plan to tell them when it comes time and we will probably do something special for the first one… and a 1 every tooth after!

  • We have a toothfairy in my home and ‘they’ pay $1.00 a tooth (for now)

  • Well, I don’t think my bebe boy ACTUALLY believes in the Tooth Fairy any longer (he IS almost TEN, as he likes to say), but he pretends to do so to humor me. How much each tooth is worth depends on how much is in mommy’s wallet that day – could be $1, could be $5! :)

  • I was surprised at how fun this film was, too.

    I have an award for you on my blog, if you’d like it :)

  • My 5 yr old does believe in the tooth fairy. She has recently lost 2 teeth, and the tooth fairy left her $1 for each tooth.

  • Out of my 3 children 14, 11 & 8 only the 8 yo still believes in the tooth fairy. The older two have lost all their teeth! We pay $5.00 for the 1st tooth and then $1.00 a tooth afterwards :)

  • We haven’t had a visit from the tooth fairy just yet at my house.. our babies our too little. BUT, we definitely believe in the tooth fairy, and can’t WAIT for the first visit! I’m thinking we’ll probably be a $2.00 bill house :) Thanks for the great giveaway!! Amanda

  • My two oldest 15 and 13 do not believe in the tooth fairy anymore. My 3 year has not lost a tooth yet, but will more than likely believe there is a tooth fairy!

  • my 5yo believes in the Tooth Fairy. she knows that the time is coming when she will lose teeth and Miss Fairy will visit her. how much will she leave? not sure yet…depends on how much Daddy has in his wallet that night 😉 Thanks for the chance to win ~ we love The Rock too!

  • My two little guys still do. We do have the world’s WORST tooth fairy. Always forgetting there are teeth…
    I think a dollar.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Well thanks to mom hanging on to teeth and one of the kids finding them… they stopped believing in the tooth fairy long ago. Why did I hang on to the teeth anyway? No idea. LOL!
