Consensus: Dwayne Johnson brings the full force of his charm (and his appropriately pale chompers) to the title role, but flat direction and a committee-written script render The Tooth Fairy unacceptably dull.

There are bad movies and good movies, this is way worse than bad movies, this doesn't belong in a family household.
