Plot
Two children, despairing at the breakdown of their parents’ marriage and their pitiful financial situation, hope that a loose tooth will bring them a fortune. But when their wish is granted by a rebellious tooth fairy, havoc ensues


Review
All the signs for Tooth were good ones, suggesting a quirky kids’ fantasy about a tooth fairy starring a host of British talent, from Stephen Fry to Richard E. Grant, Harry Enfield to Vinnie Jones. But the directorial debut of Edouard Nammour is not unlike a trip to the dentist minus the anaesthetic — extremely painful.


Two children, despairing at the breakdown of their parents’ marriage and their pitiful financial situation, hope that a loose tooth will bring them a fortune. But when their wish is granted by a rebellious tooth fairy, havoc ensues.


This film is a mess both visually and in terms of content (a countdown to Christmas in February?), completely lacking a fairy tale’s essential magic. How the cast were bagged for this is anyone’s guess. Their input is sadly wasted on children and adults, neither of whom will be getting any laughs out of this one.
