So long story short, I was pretty pumped when I heard from Wyshynski over at Yahoo! that Dwayne Johnson would be doing the same thing only on ice skates. Cool idea, right?
"The Rock is going to be an NHL hockey player named 'The Tooth Fairy,' and you can imagine why they call him the 'Tooth Fairy,'" said Ellis. "He's an enforcer-type character, and sometimes when he hits another player their teeth come ajar and land on the ice."OK, so the name is a little on the weak side. Big deal. I'd love to see Walking Tall on Ice. But yeah, funny story ... That's not exactly what the deal is here. It has got the usual 'dumb subplot that probably only your six-year old will enjoy.' Total. Buzzkill.
"Johnson will play an ordinary man who's brought in to try to save the tooth fairy kingdom."Wha ... WHAT????
Turns out that's the gist of it. IMDB.com, the best movie website there is, has a similar summation.
"A guy is forced to serve time dressed up as a tooth fairy."Looks like I got my hopes up for nothing. It also looks like we could be in for another edition of the Love Guru. Ugh. If you're still waiting for the next great hockey movie, it looks like your wait just got a little longer.
