Review

Our Score
Family films take a step back 30 years with this dreadful fantasy adventure about a modern-day tooth fairy. Unintentionally playing like a 1970s kids' TV show, it's amateurish and old-fashioned, reliant on weak humour and bumbling performances from a host of minor British stars. Only girls under the age of nine are likely to be charmed by the unanimated antics of tomboyish tooth fairy Yasmin Paige, who teams up with two human children in the real world to restore the lost magic to her subterranean homeland of Fairytopia. Although the brattish Paige is irritating enough, it's nothing compared to the appalling adults. Comedian Harry Enfield is particularly embarrassing as the fairy-hunting villain, while Sally Phillips's fake American accent is like nails on a blackboard. The paper-thin script and sloppy direction only compound the mess, and without any exciting action sequences or effects, there's little to distract from the tale's overall mediocrity.

Summary

A rebellious tooth fairy grows tired of her daily coin-collecting duties and decides to deposit a hefty sum of cash in the home of a young girl and her brother. However, she discovers her actions have jeopardised the plans for Christmas in her homeland of Fairytopia. Children's fantasy adventure, starring Yasmin Paige, Harry Enfield, Richard E Grant, Jim Broadbent and Stephen Fry.
