Continuing in the modern trend of movie macho man deconstructionism, we have Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson once again playing a snobbish athlete who gets taken down a notch (see: The Game Plan), only this time, he’s an insensitive hockey player known as “The Tooth Fairy” (for breaking teeth, naturally) who is forced to become and ACTUAL Tooth Fairy after he nearly “kills a little girl’s dreams.”
What ensues is the usual adults doing silly stuff onscreen to make kids laugh, and if you’ve been keeping an eye on former famous macho or raunchy men of the last ten years (read: Johnson, Vin Diesel, Eddie Murphy), then you pretty much know where this is headed.
However, don’t take my word for it – check out the trailer for Tooth Fairy for yourself:
The only even remotely cool thing I see here (for the adults at least) is the whole Jame Bond gadget angle, which could make for a few amusing breaking and entering jokes. Beyond that, this one looks like it’s pretty much going to be a hoot for kids only.
Oh Dwayne Johnson, we salute yet another movie macho man bribed into kiddie flick purgatory…
Tooth Fairy is set to hit theaters on January 22, 2010.
