Molar for a Canine Tooth Effects Blooper in Tooth Fairy

The comedy, Tooth Fairy, stars Dwayne Johnson as a loathsome ice hockey player who gets sentenced by the tooth fairies for wrongdoings committed against toothfairydom. To pay for his misdeeds, he must become a tooth fairy. It's a lot easier said than done of course and our hero must pass tooth fairy school before he is set loose onto the world!

Well, back to the blooper. In one scene in the movie, Johnson crashes into an opposing team's player who loses a canine tooth - or is it a lateral incisor? Anyway, the tooth that flies away and shown as a computer graphic animation (below) is clearly intended to be a molar. Molars, of course, are found at the back of the jaw and mandible and not at the front. You can see what canine teeth look like in the diagram on the left. The third picture below shows the source of the loosened tooth.

This isn't your fairy tale tooth fairy. It's actually the one from Hell Boy 2: The Golden Army. Yes, it's a nasty looking one but it's also kind of cute at the same time with that funny horse-like smile. Click here or on the image to place your order.

You're missing the big picture, literally. See the movie poster. The feathers in the wings are backwards. The bottom side of a wing should have the trailing edges of the feathers exposed.
