Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews

Story: Derek Thompson is a hard-charging hockey player whose nickname comes from his habit of separating opposing players from their bicuspids. When Derek discourages a youngster's dreams, he's sentenced to one week's hard labor as a real tooth fairy, complete with the requisite tutu, wings and magic wand. At first, Derek "can't handle the tooth" - bumbling and stumbling as he tries to furtively wing his way through strangers' homes...doing what tooth fairies do. But as Derek slowly adapts to his new position, he begins to rediscover his own forgotten dreams. (20th Century Fox)

Rated: PG for mild language, some rude humor and sports action

Bottom Line: Visit your dentist for an unscheduled checkup, chew on tin foil or take out an aching tooth with an ice skate ala Tom Hanks in CASTAWAY. By picking any one of these three you’ll ensure yourself a much more enjoyable time than you would by sitting thru this harmless yet ridiculously useless and not-that-funny waste of cinematic space.
