The humor is meant to be built in from the casting of rugged Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the title role of this comedy, as a hockey player whose opposition-bruising ways get him sentenced to wear a tutu and cater to youngsters who have placed their loosened teeth under their pillows.
The idea gets old pretty fast, though, even with such highly notable co-stars as Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal. Ashley Judd, Stephen Merchant - Ricky Gervais' usual creative partner - and Seth MacFarlane also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; "Train to Be a Tooth Fairy" and "Fairy-oke" features. ** (PG: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
