If we all are completely honest we’d all admit to liking silly films every once in a while. A little escapism is good for the soul. It must be stated that there are limits to the silliness of the films. If they cross the line of acceptable silliness, however, then they just become painful. If you watch Tooth Fairy 2 then you will understand what I am talking about.
Larry (Larry the Cable Guy – Cars) and Brooke (Erin Beaute – appearances in television’s Burn Notice and The Glades) are dating. Beauregard Billings (David Mackey), a successful businessman and a guy with political aspirations, has his eye on Brooke. Larry works as a mechanic at a garage. He is accused of being a man-child by Brooke.
One year later Larry and Brooke have broken up and she is marrying Beauregard, who is running for mayor. Brooke broke up with Larry because she felt he was never going to grow up and mature. Larry vows to stop Brooke from making the mistake of marrying Beau. While trying to impress Brooke by volunteering at her rec centre for kids, Larry lets it slip to one of the kids that there is no such thing as the Tooth Fairy. The kids are crushed and Brooke is furious.
That evening Larry finds an invite from the Department of Dissemination of Disbelief under his pillow. While he is asleep he is transported to the Department and there he is transformed into a Tooth Fairy. This is his punishment for saying the Tooth Fairy doesn’t exist. Larry must be a Tooth Fairy and collect 10 teeth in 10 days in his area. If he refuses his best memory will be taken from him.
On the plus side, this is a film that you can rent or buy and watch with the entire family. Nothing objectionable of the language, violence or sex variety. Only thing that might get some viewers backs up is an extended fart scene (but hey, farting gets me every time). What is objectionable is the quality of the film. Farfetched and dumb humour I can take. What I cannot is the fact that none of the characters in the film, even Larry, aren’t annoying. I just wanted to smack every last one of them. In regards to the humour, most of it falls flat. It was a yawner on that level. This is a greater sin that the problems with the logic of the film. Even the grown man looking funny in a pink tutu wears thin after a while if there is nothing else to back it up laughs wise. Gets my vote as an unnecessary sequel.
