Even if the movie is bad Dwayne Johnson is always entertaining, always!
This was not a good week, I tried to get at least one more movie in before the week was over. However my body needed sleep more than it needed to see that movie, and thus only one movie this week.
Tooth Fairy (2010, Michael Lembeck, Canada/United States Of America) **
I’ll be honest right out of the gate, any good will I carry towards Tooth Fairy is due to Dwayne Johnson and Stephen Merchant. The two of them are trying so hard in this ridiculously bad film, and they try so hard that they actually make it bearable. There are a lot of dead stretches of nothingness in this film, no humor, no emotion, just nothing. Then the end hits, wherein the main character learns his life lesson and is then blasted with amnesia dust so that he loses said lesson, yet the film acts like that isn’t what happens. It’s stupid, and that was this movie, Tooth Fairy is stupid and it treats its audience like they are a bunch of drooling idiots. Dwayne Johnson and Stpehen Merchant are hella charming, but their best efforts can’t save this insipid film.
Uh, not much to say here. Since it was the only movie I watched this week Tooth Fairy takes home movie of the week honors by default. I’m not happy about this, nope, not happy at all. Oh well, until next week, watch more movies (and I’ll try to do the same)!
