New DVD Release ‘Tooth Fairy 2’ a Laugh Riot

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

ToothFairy2_2.jpgThis week’s DVD and Blu-ray release by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment of Tooth Fairy 2 gives some great opportunities to let loose and laugh a lot. As KIDS FIRST! youth film critic Jennifer Huntoon says of her experience screening the film, “There wasn’t a … moment when I did not laugh.” One of this year’s KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Search winners, 13-year-old Jennifer offers an entertaining view of the movie and invites kids and parents to enjoy it together.

Today, I watched Tooth Fairy 2. Ten teeth in 10 days sounds impossible for a brand-new tooth fairy helper, right? Well, Larry Guthrie, played by Larry the Cable Guy, makes it possible. He is on a mission, but not just any mission – a mission to restore faith in the tooth fairy and to keep his best memory. This was an enjoyable movie. There wasn’t a dull moment or a moment when I did not laugh.
The main characters in this film include Larry Guthrie (Larry the Cable Guy;
Cars 1 and Cars 2). Other main characters are Beauregard “Bo” Billings (David Mackey); Brook (Erin Beute), the adorable tooth fairy; and Nyx (Brady Reiter). All of the tooth fairy costumes are out of this world. When I saw Larry Guthrie in a pink tutu and tights for the first time, I started to laugh my head off! That has to be one of my favorite costumes and scenes.
I would recommend this movie for ages 5-12. If parents watch this movie with their kids, they would find it to be funny and a good story. These ages would like this film because of the jokes and comedy. Tooth Fairy 2 ranges from physical and exaggerated comedy to romance and love. There are things like “fart” jokes and funny dancing that even made my mom and me laugh. I knew from the moment I saw Larry the Cable Guy that this movie would be hilarious and I was right.

Even though some of the silly jokes did not fully grab my attention and make me laugh, I would still give Tooth Fairy 2 four stars. This film comes out on March 6, 2012. So if you are in the mood for some comedy or if you are a fan of Larry the Cable Guy, mark your calendar for the release of Tooth Fairy 2 on DVD.

This movie is great for surfers, skate-boarders and Barbie fans.

The main character, Malia, is half human and half mermaid. She enjoys both her water world and human world.

There are times that she has to choose which world is more important to her. She’s very competitive in her human world and sometimes forgets her obligations to her water world.

Malia is in a surfing competition in her human world and does not want to go to her water world for an important ceremony. Her mom is very sad because Malia chooses the human world over the water world’s important day.

Malia has an evil aunt who was put in the wind tunnel because she’s bad. The evil aunt somehow tricks her competitor, Kylie, to help her out of the wind tunnel. This puts the water world into harm’s way. The aunt then traps Kylie in the wind tunnel.

Malia senses that there is something bad happening to the water world. She swims into the ocean to look for her mom. While she’s looking for her mom, she sees that Kylie is trapped in the wind tunnel. Malia helps Kylie out of the wind tunnel and gives up her secret to save Kylie. After this rescue, Malia and Kylie join forces to help the water world from the evil aunt.

There are a lot of excitements with all the twists and turns. Malia and Kylie have a hard time fighting Malia’s evil aunt and the aunt’s electric fish.CheyenneNguyen.jpg

In the end, Malia has to make a decision to be a human or mermaid to save the water world from evil.

There are a lot of funny lines from the sea animals and I was laughing a lot.

This movie shows us how competition is good and bad. If we focus too much on winning, we tend to do the wrong thing to win. This is why we need to look into our skills and what we can do to improve what we have, not focus on our competitors and what they have. If you have a good heart and follow what your heart tells you to do, you will do the right thing.

The music is very upbeat and the story line is very easy to follow. The surfing tricks are awesome.

I give this movie 4 stars out of 5, and recommend it for ages 4-10.
