My daughter has a loose tooth and has been wiggling it constantly. Her father already told her that the Tooth Fairy isn’t real so she said to him, that means daddy that you’re Santa Claus and mommy must be the Tooth Fairy. We laughed at her intelligence and ability to make it fun. Do you tell your kids the truth or let them believe in these fun characters for a while?
In the movie Tooth Fairy, it’s very much placed in the same kind of idea that The Santa Claus is placed in. Larry Guthrie (Larry the Cable Guy) is a fun-loving dreamer with a serious mission: win back the love of his life before she makes a terrible mistake and marries the wrong man! In his attempt to get back on his long lost love’s good side, Larry visits the school where she works and make’s a horrible mistake… He accidentally tells a child that the Tooth Fairy is just a myth. Crushing the child’s dreams sets off a chain of events that are far more than Larry bargained for including being “sentenced” to become a Tooth Fairy or face having his memories erased for good…PLUS losing any chance of getting back the girl of his dreams! Larry is brought before a 500-year-old Tooth Fairy stuck in a 10-year-old girl’s body (played by newcomer Brady Reiter) for sentencing. The Tooth Fairy demands that Larry make retribution by temporarily serving as a Tooth Fairy and proving that Tooth Fairies really do exist. His mission? Larry must collect 20 teeth in 20 days. With his orders in hand, Larry embarks on a journey to prove the existence of Tooth Fairies and to win back the love of his life.
We watched the movie today and I was expecting the children to say it’s boring and ask me to turn on something else. Instead they both were laughing and giggling saying that Larry is really funny. They actually were able to pay attention and understood the storyline. This is a big step for us because before this movie, only cartoons made the cut. I liked it too. I was supposed to be working all morning and I found myself spending more time watching the movie than I did actually writing. OOPS! I hope to get caught up tomorrow.
We received a sample to review.
