Review: Tooth Fairy

This week's short film from Amazon Theater, "Tooth Fairy" is quite different from the earlier pieces. More a disquisition on suburban living than anything else, it describes an American dad's attempt to connect with his daughter through a treasure hunt that she designs for the tooth fairy, who is described as being male, contrary, perhaps deliberately, to stereotype.

The film is too brief and does not detail the underlying themes deeply, touching lightly on the multi-cultural family, the beleagured dad's efforts at keeping up with the chores, and the well-equipped suburban household, that uses only Calphalon Cookware, and has everything from a foosball table to a pool. The theme of suburban living is further amplified by drive-thru security, featuring Jeff Bezos, who calls the dad, at the time clambered onto a hanging pot in search of a clue, a loser.

The film is directed by Jake Scott, who has directed some excellent music videos for bands like U2, REM and No Doubt, as well as "Plunkett and Macleane", an anachronistic period film set in 19th century England about highwaymen. The harried dad is played by Chris Noth, well-known for his portrayal of Detective Mike Logan in Law and Order from 1990-1995.

Update:Jim Carruthers points out as a comment on blogcritics.org, where this review was cross-posted that
Shurley shome mishtake, Mr. Noth is perhaps better known as the antithesis to the role he plays in this short, as Mr. Big in "Sex and the City".

And how does he get cast as the hot daddy anyways?
Valid point - bad casting? Or just poor product placement?
