'Tooth Fairy'

Rating: PG for mild language, some rude humor and sports action What it's about: A cynical, embittered hockey player is sentenced to be a tooth fairy after he lectures kids to live in the real world and not fantasize about things they may never have. The kid attractor factor: Dwayne Johnson, the cinema's ultimate plush toy, dressed as a fairy and doing slapstick. Good lessons/bad lessons: Taking away children's fantasies ruins childhood Violence: It's hockey, right? Language: Very mild language, despite the hockey Sex: None, though the hockey player is dating a single mom with sleepover privileges Drugs: None Parents' advisory: Strictly a younger kids' fantasy, with fairies and the gadgetry of fairies plus a good message about the odds against growing up to be a star athlete. Suitable for five and up.
