Worst Movie Ever? Check The Trailer for THE TOOTH FAIRY starring The Rock...

Hey folks, Harry here - coming off of a great Fantastic Fest - the first thing I do is start checking out what I've missed while being wrapped up in a cocoon of Fantastic Films! And then I get slapped about the head and shoulders by... THE TOOTH FAIRY. It's one of those trailers that literally looks worse than a trip to a dentist for a root canal. See if you can watch the entire trailer. There's a part of me that wants to see it because it looks like a trailer for a made up movie in a spoof film with trailers for movies that not sane studio would actually produce. So. Parents that read AICN. Would you take your kids to see something that looks like this? And if so. Why?

Tooth Fairy got gnards!

    I said the same thing about "The Game Plan"

    by Mr. Profit

    And look how that turned out. Whatever reason, kids love Dwayne Johnson. So I guess he is doing the movies that will make him money. Everyone has a mortgage... But I wish he would return to more bad ass action. "The Rundown" is underrated.

    I’ve been hearing how this was the end all be all of Halloween Horror movies for a few years and it is most definitely NOT the case. The biggest draw, for me, was hearing that it was an anthology with interconnecting stories ala Creepshow meets Pulp Fiction. Taking a linear story, chopping it up and playing it from different perspectives, doesn’t impress me. I thought this movie was very generic from the lighting, to the direction to the acting. For those of you that think Anna Paquin is attractive, you need to get your fucking eyes checked. Her puggy nose, fucked teeth and wonky mouth killed by boner faster then a shotgun blast to the crotch. This chick should be living under a bridge, especially compared to some of the hot ass that was parading around in this movie. I now understand why Warner Brothers was ready to bury this flick and I think that you’re all fucked in the head if you think this deserved to be released theatrically. This movie was PAINFULLY average in almost every way nor did it have sufficient gore or nudity to keep my interest. Once again a case of internet sites hyping up the work of someone who’s been involved with some large scale movies (X-Men 2, Superman Returns) in the hopes that said Writer/Director will give them exclusives the next time he’s involved with another big budget studio flick and, considering that Singers career is on the downturn with SR and Valkyrie, I don’t think Michael Dougherty’s going to be involved with many more of those.

  • Oct. 2, 2009, 6:57 a.m. CST

    It actually looks good

    by estacado1

    I'd watch it if it was on HBO and nothing else was on. But I'm not going to pay money to go see it. Plus, The Rock should be successor to Stallone in Rambo. He could be one of his distant nephews who is in the Navy Seal and has only heard stories about John Rambo. In the upcoming Rambo movie, Rick Rambo is part of the elite team in fighting the monster-soldier in the jungle together with John Rambo. They form a bond and John Rambo says "I'm too old for this shit, you take over." And in the next next movie, Rick Rambo follows the footsteps of John and goes to Afghanistan to kick AlQaeda ass.

    Open Letter To Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson . . .

    by adiehardfanwithalethalweapon

    Man, you were the next big action star but out of nowhere you turned to pandering to kids? What the hell? Now I can understand diversifying your portfolio for a film or two but you're quickly becoming a new generations mickey mouse. “Can we get the Rock to do the nutcracker?! An old fashioned prince and the popper would just be boring . . . let’s throw some Rock in there! A Rock-y Christmas is where the money would really roll in!” Might I be so kind as to remind you that the 20 to 30 year old male wwe watching audience is what got you your start. And what kinda films would testosterone driven males be watching? Action movies! That’s not to mean I want to pigeon hole you but there’s a tiny bit of love that comes with what I’m saying. You could of had a respectable acting career. An action movie here, a comedy there, a kids movie and maybe even some drama. You in brightly colored tights and fairy wings is NOT what the vast majority of us want to see! Come back to us Rocky. Come back before it’s too late . . .

    It's not even the worst trailer I've seen this year. The trailer for I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER not only made me want to kill everyone involved with that movie. It also made me want to kill complete strangers. <br><br> looks neither interesting nor downright awful. It's just there. Two things, though: a) I doubt that five writers were really needed for this and b) Holy shit! Billy Crystal! The bit at the end was amusing, but someone needs to get him back hosting the Oscars. <br><br> Oh, and unless it includes the words, 'Welcome', 'to', 'the' or 'Dollhouse', it's not the worst movie ever. You're welcome.

    by theeternalhipster

    In my humble opinion.. Southland Tales is the best movie The Rock ever made... He was cast perfectly by Richard Kelley in that movie.. if you don't know what I'm talking about go rent it now... I can't understand why after making a movie with the creator of Donnie Darko he would lower himself to this shite!!!

    A Family Friendly Movie

    by Karuma

    Why all the hate? If you don't want to go see it, don't, but quit being such little girls and trying to put stuff down when it is obvious that they are not aiming this movie at you. And by you, I mean the parent's basement dwelling, anime loving, self-loathing film elitist, who thinks that any movie that does not feature either a super hero, lots of nudity, or a foreign language, is beneath their contempt. Not everything is made for the irrationally coveted 18-49 year old demographic who, by the way, will be taking their 10 year old's to see this movie. And Harry, you ask, would I watch this movie? Of course I would. It stars Duane Johnson, who is almost always in the kind of movie that gets blasted by the posters on this site, but still manages to make money and be the kind of movie that children will watch over and over and adults, who are not jaded by overly zealous critics who think they know everything about what people want to or should watch, will think is "cute". Just back off. Some people like this kind of stuff. Just because you don't doesn't make it bad.

    Those of you "hating"

    by NemesisOfZod

    Carry on. Somewhere Universal is bringing the original Bruce out of mothballs just so Dwayne "I'm not The Rock/Now I am Again" Johnson can jump it in style as they film a new version of Happy Days starring him in every role. I don't dislike his body of work, but as a whole it speaks highly of his ability to pick a paycheck over a project. My kids loved the hell out of The Game Plan, and my wife bought it just for that reason alone. This, on the other hand, proves there is not enough brain bleach to wipe clean the viewing of this trailer. And yes, Southland Tales was as incredible as Doom was terrible. Anyone else preparing to state the obvious, there is a talkback for Transformers 3 with your name all over it.

    by blade_walker

    OK I can understand that not everybody likes Jacob's Ladder, but is it honestly one of the worst movies you've EVER seen? I hated Synedoche NY, but it is no way one of the worst films I've ever seen. I can think of a dozen movies that are ten times worse than Highlander MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE, TROLL 2, MAC AND ME, MEET THE SPARTANS, etc.

  • Oct. 2, 2009, 5:09 p.m. CST


    by BiggusDickus

    Happily, I've not seen any of those, but my (badly-made) point was to illustrate the films I'd seen that - I thought - were supposed to be decent based on their trailers and/or premise.<p>Things like 'Meet The Spartans' I wouldn't go and see anyway because they look like total shite from the off.<p>However, if you're seriously telling me you've sat through ten films you felt were worse than the execrable 'Highlander 2', then you, sir, are some kind of stamina god. Mrs. Blade_walker must love you to bits!

    by Jamie McBain

    Stan Helsing, looks even worse than, The Tooth Fairy. It looks like so,ething created the people who btought us, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Meet The Spartans.

  • Oct. 2, 2009, 6:18 p.m. CST


    by BiggusDickus

    Don't be a buffoon. New 'Trek' was merely an average summer blockbuster. Not brilliant and not dreadful. Are you seriously telling us this was so-o-o bad that even 'Van Helsing' would've been a more valid use of your time?<p>No, I thought not.

    FIVE credited writers and directed by Captain Cool

    by Professor_Monster

    Let's see - five credited writers means there were more like 15 on this film - this script was originally going to be done by Ah-nald back in the mid ninties - looks like Dwayne got his backwash. looks like shit- but if it starred a Strips era Bill Murray - I'd be in like Flynn - as long as it wasn't directed by Michael (Santa claus - One Day at a time Captain Cool) Lembeck.

    I like The Rock

    by liljuniorbrown

    He's the only thing that made "Be Cool" watchable. But ,people like him and Eddie Murphy both need to get out of the kiddie movie business for a while. He must be running out his deal with Disney. Hope so anyways. On a different note I would like to see a dedicated talkback to peoples worst movie ever lists. After viewing Twilight the other day, it's in my top five. That was the first time in recent memory that I ever noticed actors wearing make up in a movie. It was worse than the Wayons Brothers in White Chicks. Speaking of which I think I might have just found my number one worst film ever.

    The Rock in "Tomorrowland"

    by Moley Mole

    The Rock has one more Disney movie in the near future, based upon Tomorrowland (I hear it's set in space). Based upon who's writing it (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past) and because it's a Disney film, it will most likely be as ball-less as The Rocks last 3 Disney movies. Sigh...

    by Jamie McBain

    contracted to make with the Mouse, anyway? Or is Tomorrowland the last one? Because if the movie version of It's A Small World, ever gets made, he should be in it.

    Not the worst movie; that is AVENGERS

    by Mr_Satan

    <p>I've had the displeasure of paying for that shit movie. I thought hey it's Connery, Fiennes, Thurman, and Eddie Izzard. OOOh ass kicking commence. But no. It was stir fried shit.<p> <p>I started making fun of the movie to make myself feel better. But it screwed me even then. The jokes I started making were actually scenes in that shit storm. I dare say it's the worst movie in all creation. I dare any of you to watch it and not come back with the same conclusion.<p> <p> And wolves of wall street. An Eric Roberts strait to vid movie was fucking shit as well.<p> I've seen a lot of crappy movies this can't be as bad as those two.

    Kindergarten Cop

    by Hipshot

    Worked because Arnold was playing off a long-established image. The Rock simply doesn't have a long string of badass movies to counterpoint--he's trapped in the same "honest! I'm harmless!" abyss that claimed Eddie Murphy and Ice Cube.

    MCBAIIIIIN! Leonard is Horrible

    by Mr_Satan

    But Avengers still wins. I dare you to watch that abortion of a "film" and not agree. I remember watching Leonard years ago, and wanting to throttle Cosby for molesting me with that shit. Then cam along Avengers and I wanted to pull my eyes out, and deafening myself for having subjected my senses to such tripe. Every time I think about that movie I get pissed to this day. Even more angry than I get when people cut me off in traffic and go slower than when I was driving.
