Tooth Fairy 2: Better than you'd expect, but you'd expect pretty bad
Before taking over from Arnie in Jingle All The Way 2 (2014) Larry The Cable Guy did another straight to dvd cash grab with Tooth Fairy 2.
Taking over from the Rock he plays.................well basically like every single movie he just plays himself. Nobody could ever accuse the guy of being a broad actor! He accidentally tells a child that the tooth fairy isn't real and gets forced into doing tooth fairy duty for a week. To make matters worse his ex-girlfriend is getting married and he's determined to win her back.
You'd assume this would be dire but truth be told it's actually on par with the original. I'd personally have liked to see Stephen Merchant return but I guess the lower budget didn't allow it.
Family "Fun" full of plenty of silly laughs and some of them surprisingly hit the mark. I even laughed at a fart joke out loud, and hated myself for doing so.
Despite his limitations Larry is a likeable enough character and does a decent job here with the hit and miss script. Sure it's daft, but what in the blue hell do you expect from something like this?
A few laughs are to be had
Excessively silly in places
Ending felt rushed
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
That newspaper was ammazing
It gets dark at night
