SOME MOVIES ARE BASICALLY FEATURE LENGTH RIFFS on a SINGLE IMAGE -- CASE in POINT: http://www.razzies.com/forum/the-tooth-fairy_forum409&SID=266c99f2f1c224ez52426f56627c1af5.html - , WHICH IS BANKED on the SIGHT of MACHO MAN "THE ROCK" in a TUTU to CARRY IT to BOX OFFICE SUCCESS... 
 
THOUGH IT CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE YET ANOTHER CRAPPY, KIDDIE-FRIENDLY "COMEDY" from DIZZ-KNEE (the ULTIMATE PURVEYORS of SUCH PAP) THIS ONE IS ACTUALLY ANOTHER CRAPPY, KIDDIE-FRIENDLY "COMEDY"...from FOX.
 
OTHER THAN THAT ONE SURPRISING TIDBIT, THERE's ALMOST NOTHING to DISTINGUISH THIS FILM from ANY of http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0425005/ - . THE ONE CLASSY ELEMENT HERE, and IT's SUCH an OBVIOUS CHOICE THAT the CASTING DIRECTOR MAY HAVE LITERALLY COME UP with IT in HIS SLEEP, IS the CASTING of http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000267/awards - - ® WINNER JULIE ANDREWS as "LILY, QUEEN of the TOOTH FAIRIES."
 
IF WATCH THIS FILM EXPECTING ANYTHING BUT a HEEPIN' HELPIN' of EVERYTHING YOU OUGHT to EXPECT from a MOVIE LIKE THIS, MAYBE IT's TIME for YOU to RE-ASSESS YOUR BELIEIF in the TOOTH FAIRY, the EASTER BUNNY, SANTA CLAUS... 
 
 
THE ROCK: "So, like, what's the key to all this I'm a 
Tooth Fairy crap?"

ANDREWS: "You simply have to believe...just as I 
strongly believe you could be a Worst Actor RAZZIE® 
nominee come year's end..."

You know Julie Andrews will always be remembered for Mary Poppins (where she played the title character) and The Sound of Music (as Maria Von Trapp). My friend Sarah Houpt also remembers her guest-starring on The Muppet Show, where she told me, that they brought in a real cow on the stage with Andrews.
 
Julie Andrews will probably be the best part of the movie, because she was on Broadway for several years before making movies, and thus has far more acting experience than The Rock (who more people still know for wrestling). Kind of like like Hulk Hogan, before he went kiddy on us and gave us a silly, campy, obscure Christmas movie in 1996 called Santa With Muscles ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117550/ - LINK ). That one should have a DVD release by now, but doesn't...

Do you think I was young enough to grow up watching Smurfs, Thundercats, and reruns of shows like A-Team and Dukes of Hazzard, and Alvin and the Chipmunks?

This will easily be the best film of the year...right behind The Spy Next Door
 
RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Do I detect a note of sarcasm creeping into moviewizeguy's postings...ALLRIGHT

Though 2007 had about 30 films that were worse, I thought really badly of The Rock in The Game Plan ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0492956/ - LINK ). If I ever get a career that's NOT acting, chances are next-to-nothing that I'll sign on for any roles, because I doubt they would wait for me to read the script. The Rock should've stuck to wrestling. Hopefully fewer people in the future will make the mistakes he's made.

As for The Tooth Fairy, is the fairy supposed to look that old

Hey, remember when Julie Andrews had a respectable career and Dwayne Johnson was showcased mainly as a manly man? Yeah, well...those days are long gone!

Roger Ebert gave this film two stars stating, "There's no way I can recommend this movie to anyone much beyond the Tooth Fairy Believement Age, but I must testify it's pleasant and inoffensive, althought the violence in the hockey games seems out of place."  To be honest, I don't know the average age when children stop believing in the Tooth Fairy, but for those who still do, I wonder how this will affect their thoughts on the subject.

I now have to officially place Dwayne Johnson in the same league as Madonna. There is no level officially too low for this man to descend to in order to promote himself...

I think this week, Hollywood big-wigs must've said, "Let's release a whole bunch of crap starring men with wings." Thus we are "treated" to The Tooth Fairy and Legion. I wonder if there are any men with wings in Extraordinary Measures....

I still think his worst role was in DOOM in autumn 2005.

Although Dwayne Johnson was good in [ulr=http://www.razzies.com/forum/the-game-plan_forum224.html]THE GAME PLAN[/url],that movie's plot was a lil'more appealin'for adults...but this?
 
I'll watch it,but my hopes won't be very up.

Great, Just what we need, another Hollywood film taking a Dump on the Great Sport of Hockey, as if "The Love Guru" wasn't bad enough!

Y'know, I remember when There used to be Good films about hockey like Youngblood, The Mighty Ducks, and of course Paul Newman's favorite "Slap Shot". Now it seems Hollywood likes using the sport as a punchline, well we Hockey fans aren't laughing, we're disgraced!

I did see this playing on an airplane, but I didn't bother with it, I instead watched some anime on my Laptop. I did look up every now and then to Glance at the Monitor to see what was going on, I'm glad I wasn't listening to the Dialogue, because from looking at it, the film looked "Turrible!" Oh and, on the flight back, the movie was "Old Dogs", how nice.

Yes, it's sad but true. Meanwhile, baseball, the most boring sport fo them all, is treated like the sport of kings. Such bulls***. Oh well, like you said, we'll always have "Slap Shot". And also, Kurt Russell's "Miracle" if you think about it.

I honestly didn't think it was THAT bad...  Sure it went flat at places...but not enough to give it a match penalty (a la "The Love Guru")...perhaps 2 for tripping...
