Have you ever thought about how you are going to approach the whole "losing your tooth" thing with your kids? I know I have been stressing over it. As a matter of fact I couldn't even remember when kids start losing their teeth. If I hadn't been paying attention to my friends on Facebook and their trials and triumphs with missing and loose teeth, then I probably would freak out when my oldest starts wiggling a tooth or even worse...one pops out! However, after listening to parents it seems like the biggest fear and obstacle is remembering to be the tooth fairy! I don't know how many parents I have seen post that the "Tooth Fairy" forgot to pick up the tooth and leave the money. If you've ever been there or if you don't believe in the tooth fairy then I have a movie for you.
Larry Guthrie (Larry the Cable Guy) is a fun-loving dreamer with a serious mission: win back the love of his life before she makes a terrible mistake and marries the wrong man! In his attempt to get back on his long lost love’s good side, Larry visits the school where she works and make’s a horrible mistake… He accidentally tells a child that the Tooth Fairy is just a myth. Crushing the child’s dreams sets off a chain of events that are far more than Larry bargained for including being “sentenced” to become a Tooth Fairy or face having his memories erased for good…PLUS losing any chance of getting back the girl of his dreams! Larry is brought before a 500-year-old Tooth Fairy stuck in a 10-year-old girl’s body (played by newcomer Brady Reiter) for sentencing. The Tooth Fairy demands that Larry make retribution by temporarily serving as a Tooth Fairy and proving that Tooth Fairies really do exist. His mission? Larry must collect 20 teeth in 20 days. With his orders in hand, Larry embarks on a journey to prove the existence of Tooth Fairies and to win back the love of his life.
My Take: OK honestly, I'm a Larry the Cable Guy fan but if you've seen the first Tooth Fairy movie then it's a little hard to go from the Rock in a tutu to Larry in a tutu...LOL. Now as for the kids, it was a funny sight to see. My kids are only 3 and 4 so the movie was a little bit over their head subject wise. They didn't understand the whole tooth falling out idea and why the kids got money from a man in a tutu. I've tried to explain it to them before but it's just not sinking in because they have yet to experience it. On the other hand there were so many other funny parts to the movie that the kids were laughing the whole time. They loved the whole "snow ball" fight with Larry and the kids, the "ferocious" pet pig, and of course Larry dancing at the Bachelorette party (or maybe that was my favorite).
My final thoughts... this is a great movie to share with your kids. You can view it just for a laugh or you can use it as an introduction to the tooth fairy and the whole losing your tooth phenomena. Either way, you're sure to enjoy it.
