Storyline
When Dan O'Grady returns to the U.S. after stealing some Irish leprechaun's pot of gold, he thinks he can settle down and enjoy his newfound wealth. He thought wrong. The leprechaun followed him and O'Grady barely gets away with his life, having locked the little monster in his basement. Ten years later, J.D. and his spoiled daughter Tory move in. By accident, the leprechaun is released and almost immediately the annoying creature starts to look for his gold, not displaying any respect for human life.

User Review

Well, at least this series gave Warwick Davis steady employment.

Rating:

This movie is not very good, but it is not entirely bad either. It has
its
moments, though overall it is rather stupid. What we get here is a killer
leprechaun so what does one expect? A leprechaun who constantly says "I
want mi gold". Not an unreasonable request for the most part, though he
does tend to go a little overboard with the killings to get what was
stolen
from him. Then again he proves to be quite civil if you return his
property, unless you short change him. This made me almost pull for the
leprechaun to chop open the moron who just had to swallow a piece of the
leprechaun's gold. This is not a great or even a good movie, but there is
enough in here to at least be entertained for an hour and a half. Plus,
Jennifer Aniston is in it too.
