I always thought Dwayne Johnson, aka "The Rock," was a good sport.
Once, I saw him on an episode of "Hannah Montana" (shh, don't tell) wearing lipstick and what looked like Lee Press-On Nails and thought, this guy must be a great around kids ... or just a glutton for punishment.
Well, in Fox's "Tooth Fairy," Mr. Johnson (Mr. Rock?) shows he can play both a good and bad sport in his role as minor league hockey player Derek Thompson, who's known for knocking out the competition's teeth -- and for crushing little kids' dreams.
It's after he tries to tell his girlfriend Carly's (played by Ashley Judd) daughter that the real Tooth Fairy doesn't exist that he gets into the biggest trouble -- tutu-wearing trouble, that is.
He is then summoned by the head fairy (Julie Andrews) via the super-tall and endearing Tracy (Stephen Merchant) to serve a week's time as a real Tooth Fairy to the kiddos.
At first, as Twentieth Century Fox mentions, he "can't handle the tooth," but it's through his efforts to make kids believe that he sees what's missing in his own grumpy attitude.
When we sat down to watch the movie, I wasn't sure what CC would think. So far, the excitement has been her growing baby teeth rather than losing them. And I don't know that she fully gets the whole Tooth Fairy business. But she enjoyed seeing a little girl in the movie who was about her age.
"Where's the little girl, Mommy?" she asked every time Ashley Judd's daughter (played by Destiny Grace Whitlock) was off screen.
I think she saw a potential playmate.
But I was happy to see Johnson's downtrodden, bad sport of a hockey player turn into the warm and fuzzy kids' guy that I thought he was.
He was convincing as a dream-crusher, but also refreshingly heartfelt as a good guy once he realized the, er, tooth.
