First Look: Teaser Poster for Dwayne Johnson's Tooth Fairy
Okay, I'm going to admit right now that I'm not writing about this because I'm looking forward to it by any means, but rather just because it's our very first look at anything from this upcoming movie. Our friends over at IMPAwards scored the first poster for Fox's upcoming family comedy Tooth Fairy that stars Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews, and Billy Crystal. Yep, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is still making cheesy family comedies, and instead of playing a failing football player like in The Game Plan, this time he's playing a failing hockey player, how exciting. If you're interested, then check out the poster below.
Here's the actual plot of Tooth Fairy: A bad deed on the part of a tough minor-league hockey player (Johnson, seen above) results in an unusual sentence: He must serve one week as a real-life tooth fairy. The film is directed by Michael Lembeck, the same wonderful director who brought us The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause with Martin Short and The Santa Clause 2 before that, as well as 24 episodes of "Friends." Now you know why I'm not really that excited for this. It may be fun, but I doubt it, in fact I'm pretty sure it'll just be plain awful. Anyway, Fox has Tooth Fairy set for release on January 22nd, 2010 early next year.

Fuck me. Really? I'd sooner watch gnats fuck.

I think Dwayne is doing these family films for kicks, and why not. Most actors who do these films say they end up feeling better, and who cares if it isn't your cup of tea its his let him be.

He's getting payed out the ass by Disney is why.
Kris on Sep 21, 2009
Yeah that great...but he is being a bitch.....sure ARNOLD did comedy but cemented himself as an action star....then went to do comedy...thats what makes it more endearing is when someone does 10 hardcore action movies and then does some comedy TWINS, JUNIOR, ....and then a few family comedies KINDERGARDEN COP, JINGLE ALL THE WAY....but the Rock seems to be doing nothing but Disney fucking flops of shit...and that is wearing thin
CORNBOY on Sep 21, 2009
I agree with Cornboy. Dwayne really hasn't solidified himself as an action star so the comedies he does loses its endearment. Then again he really hasn't solidified himself as a star just yet. He definitely needs many more action films with a few comedies..

I like him better in action. He's a cool guy though. Come back to us Dwayne!

What? a load of family shit.. garbage, the Rock should be doing action gritty film instead of this Disney shit.

I liked Welcome to the jungle/helldorado whatever it was called in the US, the follow up to some extent, Walking Tall. He seems to want to be a boyscout though rather than a action hero

Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson must have the same agent. They both threw away any action credibility they had built up to make these stupid family comedies.

lame. he's actually a good actor, and yet all he does is crappy movies. wtf.
dave13 on Sep 22, 2009

apparently people cant read, this isnt a disney movie. he may have done some in the past, but this is fox, at least read the article before you make an ass of yourself.

I think The Rock is turning gay...
That Awesome Norwegian Guy on Sep 22, 2009
#1, #8 cant you read its not a Disney movie its a FOX movie. plus Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson only did 2 Disney movies The Game Plan and Race to Witch Mountain. while Johnny Depp has done 4 Disney movies Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy and Alice in Wonderland. Dwayne Johnson will come back to action movies he just want to do family movies cause of his daughter.
tazz on Sep 22, 2009
why everyone getting upset u know his coming back to do a action movie. his been casted to start in a movie called "Faster" Dwayne Johnson is in final talks to star in CBS Films' "Faster," an drama actioner directed by Phil Joanou ("Heaven's Prisoners," "Final Analysis", "Gridiron Gang"). http://www.moviejungle.com/newsDetails.aspx?ArticleID=2243

Actually this poster hit theaters two weeks ago... And #14: The Rock has been rumoured to be gay for years - and what's great is that he doesn't care - do some googling on the subject and edumacate youself.

IF YOU SMEEEEEELLL L L L L L WHAT THE ROCK, IS COOKIN' It's a bunch of squash with some peas and corn mixed in with a few raspberries and kiwi. You bloody fairy.

#18...funniest comment I've read on this board...ever I think. I actually enjoy The Rock in comedies more than I do in action films. I think he's better when he's not taking himself seriously, which action films force him to do. For God Sakes....the guy was a wrestler, and a cheesy one at that. He's made for comedies like this....and he is a decent actor, because wrestlers like Stone Cold can't even pull off an action film, let alone a family comedy. I think the Rock is hysterical in Be Cool. That was the first movie that made me notice him because he embraced his role as a gay dude and made him a perfect comedy caricature. As a hockey fan I love the irony of a bruising tough guy hockey player being a tooth fairy. I may be the only one, but I will most likely see this movie.

Austin is a better actor than The Rock dumb ass and is making better movies loved the condemned, reminded me of the action movies from the 90's which i miss
Steve on Sep 22, 2009
You know what all you dwayne "rock" hater's need to shut up. it does not matter whether he does comedy or action he is an exceptional actor and that's more than I could say about hulk hogan who sucked at everything he did even the small stuff. The rock is a real man and some serious eye candy for us women so let him do what he's doing and if he likes it who ru to judge hater. This is to the one who called him a cornboy.
Wanda Billingsley on Sep 28, 2009
I agree about letting him do comedies because he could be himself and using the term losely let his hair down. in be cool it was good to see him get in touch with his feminine side not gay side, but he still had that tough exterior. Austin only made one movie I know of which is condemed, So that's how much u know also did recurring on nash bridges other thatn that he did nada. The rock has done more even did the his debut as an actor while wrestling as the scorpion king intro on the mummy return, then the acutual movie so there. You are just mad cause you can't be him and you are probably a guy who is upset with the world because he was born a GEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So leave the real men alone and stop hating steve.

No Austin actuly done 2 movies and is about to do 2 more. What gets up my ass is that this guy would rather do crap like this instead of wrestling from time to time where he can get millions cheering for him in any given night??? and then you have Austin who sadley has to many bad injurys where he cant do it any more but he would love to do it so much. The Rock never comes back to his WWEfans to give them a cool moment in WWE because he is making shit like this. HE NEEDS TOREMEMBER WITHOUT THE WWE AND THE FANS HE WOULD BE A NOBODY AND AT THE MIN HE IS A NOBODY BECAUSE OF THIS CRAP.
