Derek Thompson is 'The Tooth Fairy,' a hard-charging minor league hockey player whose nickname comes from his habit of separating opposing players from their bicuspids. When Derek discourages a youngster's hopes, 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

Did You Know?
The opposition in both the first and last minor league game played wore uniforms that match the color scheme of the 1990's Vancouver Canucks. Their logo says they are the "Woodsmen" but the face in the logo resembles "Johnny Canuck", an original inspiration for the name "Canucks"
When Derek is being sworn in as a tooth fairy, his fingers change position when the camera goes between the front shot and back shot.
I'm the Tooth Fairy.
Thought you said you were a vampire. You got some inconsistent mythology.
Great Family Film
I don't know what the rest of these reviewers were watching but I took
my 11-year-old to see this at the theater; and she used her hard-earned
money to buy it on DVD as soon as it became available.
It's a feel-good story of a jaded and cynical man who realizes that
it's okay to dream; it's okay to believe in things you can't see and
hope for a better tomorrow. Why on earth is this a bad thing? Sure,
parts of the movie rate an 11 out of 10 on the cheese-o-meter but, once
again, why is this a bad thing?
No, I don't think that this is a good date movie, or something that a
bunch of adults would find entertaining, but when watching it with a
group of kids, or just one 11-year-old little girl, it's a winner.
