trailer break: ‘Tooth Fairy’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


Far as I can see, someone said, “Come up with as many ways as you can to humilate a grown man, and don’t stop at crotch injuries. Think pastels and pixie dust. Perhaps menacing by a housepet.” And then that person said, “Get me the biggest, toughest guy you can find, because it’s so much more awesome when a really manly kind of man is reduced to little-girlery.”

And thus was Tooth Fairy was born, and cinema history made.

Tooth Fairy opens in the U.S. and Canada on January 22, and in the U.K. on May 28.

  • He says, She says

    This seems to be a severe misuse of Julie Andrews.
    This will not be tolerated.

  • LaSargenta

    My son really liked this trailer both times we saw it. I’m so ashamed.

  • Jason M.

    The first half of that trailer was terrible. The second half, I can probably guess.

  • misterb

    But the Tooth Fairy has already been done – in “Hogfather”. Somehow, I don’t think Dwayne Johnson’s version will be in the same league.

  • This seems to be a severe misuse of Julie Andrews.

    It’s not too great an use of Ashley Judd or Billy Crystal (Billy Crystal?) either.

    And if the best project they could get is basically Elf II meets The Santa Clause IV, I’d just as soon the two of them stayed in retirement.

    You really need to start writing more fantasy screenplays, MaryAnn, because this is pathetic…

  • Orangutan

    My first thought on seeing this trailer was .oO( Someone has some SERIOUS dirt on Dwayne Johnson… )

  • RogerBW

    Yeah, Billy, it gets old… and so did you.

    And God (sic) forbid any child be allowed to have anything less than the full set of invisible sky being indoctrination. What sort of commie are you, teaching kids to think for themselves rather than unquestioningly believe anything their parents tell them?

    I suspect from an informal survey of my acquaintances that Dwayne Johnson’s primary fanbase is 5-year-old girls. And he knows it. This fits in PERFECTLY with the majority of his movie choices in recent years. I imagine the 5-year-old girls will still find him “very handsome” even with the wings and glitter, and also funny.

    @RogerBW: My parents didn’t do Santa/Tooth Fairy/Easter Bunny/etc. with me (any references were clearly fictional), and oh man, the crap they got from other parents! Apparently it was terribly cruel to deprive me of the Santa fantasy and instead teach me to thank the actual people who gave me presents. I was scarred for life.

  • Paul

    My Dad told me that Santa was an excuse for my grandparents to give me extra stuff so I should play along. I did.

    “Come up with as many ways as you can to humilate a grown man, and don’t stop at crotch injuries. Think pastels and pixie dust. Perhaps menacing by a housepet.”

    Yeah. And when are grown women gonna stop being humiliated in similar ways. In romantic comedies no less.

  • Jurgan

    I really did think this was a joke when I first heard about it. So, so sad…
