Considering that Dwayne Johnson is known the world over for decimating opponents inside the ring and for starring in a slew of high-octane action movies, it's safe to say that is a pretty intimidating guy. However, the wrestler-turned-actor does have a bit of a soft side.

Although fans are used to seeing him show off his guns in flicks like Furious 7 and San Andreas, Johnson has starred in his fair share of kid-friendly comedies over the years. While the various, mostly violence-free parts have definitely contributed to him becoming one of the world's highest-paid actors, they haven't done much for his street cred as one of the baddest dudes on the planet. Good thing he's still doing all those Fast & Furious movies to balance out his image.

Ahead, have a laugh while taking a look back at five of The Rock's least intimidating movie roles.

The Tooth Fairy

How do you make a guy who serves up People's Elbows for a living look like a harmless, average Joe? Give him wings and call him the tooth fairy. That's exactly what happened in Johnson's less than stellar 2010 comedy The Tooth Fairy. This is one not so intimidating role that The Rock would probably like to forget.

The Game Plan

Johnson serves as a glorified, muscle-bound babysitter in the 2007 sports comedy The Game Plan. Although The Rock got to relive his football days in the flick, his character spends the majority of the time trying to connect with his estranged, 8-year-old daughter.


The Rock may play a powerful demigod named Maui in his latest flick , but the character is nothing more than a big softy who can use magic. Sure, it's probably a bad idea to cross Maui, however, he'd probably just crack a few jokes and give you a hug.

Planet 51

Another animated, kid-friendly role, Johnson got to play a bumbling NASA astronaut in 2009's Planet 51. Hilarity ensues when the Rock's character unknowingly finds a planet inhabited by aliens living in '50s style homes.

Race to Witch Mountain

Last, but not least, Johnson once again plays a jacked, babysitter-like character in 2009's Race to Witch Mountain. The Rock helps a pair of teens evade government agents in this remake of the classic 1975 Disney film Escape to Witch Mountain.
