Nothing in this for kid entertainment

I let my 6 year old watch a lot of different movies. We watched this one and basically, Larry the Cable Guy is just not right for this kinda role, even tho I adore him to death. I do not feel this is appropriate as a kids movie. The story is more about the relationship between the woman, Brooke, and Larry, the tooth fairy. Its a story of a man trying to win back a woman, using kids as his leverage. It doesn't really show any good morals to kids and the aspect and entertainment for the kids, isnt really there. The kids in the movie dont even play much of a role. I was expecting more from this to be honest.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (4):

This charmless, unfunny sequel has little to recommend it. Too many elements make the story confusing. Larry the Cable Guy is a tough sell as a hero, and even though his character matures enough to win back his lady fair, as a role model he's consistently ignorant and coarse.

Obviously made on a shoestring, this one-joke film seems to be an insincere, crass effort to capitalize on the moderately successful original. And it's amateurish overall. Pink tutus can only carry a movie so far.
