Film: 2010: "The Tooth Fairy"

Dwayne Johnson is The Tooth Fairy

In Theatres January 22, 2010

Dwayne Johnson is "The Tooth Fairy," also known as Derek Thompson, 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.

One of today's most popular actors, Dwayne Johnson's juxtaposition of sharp comedic timing and impressive physicality has delighted audiences in pictures like "The Game Plan," "Get Smart" and "Race to Witch Mountain."

His latest effort, TOOTH FAIRY, brings together several elements he thought would be fun to explore. "It's a story with universal appeal," says Johnson. "It's a fish-out-of-water tale about believing in the impossible and the magic. It's for families and everyone.

"The Tooth Fairy is part of our culture," he continues, "and part of the wonderment of being a child. It's a character that's never been explored, to this extent, in the movies."

To most of the world, the Tooth Fairy is a magical figure. Like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy is both an inspiring and comforting character who teaches children to use their imaginations - and to dream. And while there are no definitive renderings, most of us envision the Tooth Fairy as a gentle sprite who magically appears during a child's slumbers to take his or her newly-displaced tooth from under the pillow and replace it with money.
