• Tooth Fairy

    We took the kids (who will be ages 6 and 8 this year) to see Tooth Fairy this afternoon. As far as kid’s movies, I’ve seen worse. Nice cameo for Seth MacFarlane. And, Stephen Merchant was a scene stealer.

    Watching it, I thought of a couple of things. First, I thought about how Arnold Schwarzenegger was rumored to make this movie back in 1992-93. But, instead, he went with ”The Last Action Hero” (which got a somewhat bad rap, in the review process, if you ask me). Next, seeing Ashley Judd in it, I thought “Wasn’t it just yesterday that she was running around naked in ‘The Devil’s Advocate’? Where has the time gone?” But, then, I realized that was Charlize Theron and not Ashley Judd. Am I only the third person to get them mixed up? After all, here’s one and here’s another.

    Afterwards, looking at the movie facts, I found out that it was Julie Cooper’s husband airline pilot, Max Horvath, who directed this one. He really had the “G.I. Joe Life-Like Beard” working back in the day. And, I also saw that Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel did the screenplay. In case you don’t know them, think: “Night Shift,” “Splash,” “Gung Ho,” “Parenthood,” “City Slickers,” “A League of Their Own,” and “Fever Pitch” – as they teamed on those as well.

    But mostly, after watching this movie, I can’t help but wonder why it’s acceptable and/or forgivable for an actor to use PEDs to alter his state but it’s a firestorm when a baseball player does it. I know, I know…it’s the stats and the record books. And, I guess that promoting good health choices and body images doesn’t matter…

    Somehow, I don’t think I’m the first person to bring that up when it comes to Hollywood…now that I’ve actually typed out the words.

      Looking for reviews of this to see if I should buy an extra entertainment app for my phone to keep my company during the film for the kids. I would love to read further, but the Ashley Judd comment has be befuddled. Were you high when you wrote this? I’m not one pass judgement or be one of those geeky nerdy film buffs to say stuff, but, she wasn’t in The Devil’s Advocate….ever.

      I don’t know if you imdb’d the screenplayer writers and the director, but, maybe you should just consider double checking things.

      Now that I reread my own response, I realize that I sound like a complete douche and will continue reading your post, it just through me off course.

      Thanks for the info, good to know there are worse things out there than this. I don’t know why but my little nieces love Dwayne Johnson and his movies… again, not sure why.

      Also, one las thing, and this is purely me being antagonistic…but, what are you coming down so hard on PED shoes?…

      Well, the PED culture was/is rampant in pro wrestling, so that would explain it somewhat when their performers make the jump to the big screen.

      For whatever reason, Vince McMahon loves or loved big muscular guys, been that way since the Hulk Hogan days. And since he had made a ton of money promoting guys with that sort of “look” I’d say he’s on to something.

      @ Raf:
      He’s on them too (or at least was when I watched back in the day)

      This may be a stupid question, but how do we know The Rock uses PED’s? I know he’s big, but he is part samoan and an ex football player. I’ve also read he works out pretty regularly. Was there a story on him and steroids that I missed?

      Nobody gets that big, and that ripped, without some help.
