Giveaway: 'Tooth Fairy' DVDs

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.


I'm giving away 2 copies of "Tooth Fairy," courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Just leave a comment below, telling me your most memorable Tooth Fairy story.

Good luck, and I'll announce winners on Friday, May 28!

Oh boy, my puppy is losing teeth like crazy. The other night while driving, I noticed something in his fur. It was a tooth! A big tooth. Ugh! The tooth fairy might be searching for that one for awhile as the tooth mysteriously made its way out the window.

My most memorable tooth fairy story is recent because my daughter is 5 and losing teeth like crazy!

She recently lost her first tooth and we have been talking up the Tooth fairy and getting her all excited about losing teeth (cause she was freaking out that she would be totally toothless, so the tooth fairy legend helped). Now, she is one that enjoys getting cards for her birthday and Christmas. Almost more than she enjoys the actual present.

So the "TOOTH FAIRY" decided to make her a pretty card to hold her $1. I knew, err, the Tooth Fairy knew my daughter would love it and want to read it over and over. So, a little note was wrote thanking her for the pretty tooth that the Tooth Fairy would take back with her to recycle into money. The tooth fairy also left a word of encouragement to keep brushing and flossing (three times a day if possible) and to keep smiling, cause clean smiles helps to keep all the Tooth Fairies healthy and strong. She then drew a cute tooth man, because that is how the tooth fairy rolls. lol

The next morning came, and as she lifted up the pillow she snatched the envelope and ripped it open. Then she.......chucked the card to the side and lifted the dollar as if it was a trophy. Smiling ear to ear and screaming "look bubba, sis, I got a dollar from the toof fairy". I told her to bring me the card and we would read it together. I read it and she replied, " Oh I like the tooth the Tooth Fairy drew" and ran off. LOL, I sat there stunned for a second, then tucked it into my desk drawer in case she ever wants to re-read it later.

She has since lost another tooth, but the tooth fairy wised up and only left the dollar.

I've never gotten anything from the tooth fairy (so sad) so I have no tooth fairy stories to tell. However, it would be cool if I at least got a tooth fairy dvd!

I will never forget the tooth fairy leaving 20 bucks under another kid's pillow while she put only 5 dollars under mine. LOL!

I know this giveaway is long gone, but I can't help but leave a reply here. I've liked The Rock ever since his wrestling days. I'm just wondering what inspired the writers and the casting people to put him in a movie like this. I've asked my friends here in Sarasota, and they all gave me an "I don't know". Anyway, I liked his role at the start of the movie. An aggressive hockey player who knocks out dental implants and teeth out of the other players' mouths? That sounds... manly!
