Tooth Fairy Reviews

What does Variety's Lael Lowenstein see in Tooth Fairy that other critics don't? If you've got kids, you may be taken to the theater to find out.
"Hoping for a good movie in January can be as pointless as expecting to catch a glimpse of the tooth fairy. So when a truly entertaining midwinter comedy finally appears, it's the moviegoing equivalent of finding, say, a C-note stashed under your pillow."
— Lael Lowenstein, Variety
"There's no way I can recommend this movie to anyone much beyond the Tooth Fairy Believement Age..."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The poster's the funniest thing about the project: Johnson, sporting a pair of fairy wings larger than his forearms, glaring at the camera."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Packed densely with product placement and played without even a hint of such high-falutin concepts as wit and originality..."
— Chris Cabin, filmcritic.com
"...it's plain to see why 20th Century Fox dumped the film in January, a month that Hollywood studios use to bury their generic duds."
— Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
