When Emily Woodrow and her friends happen on a treasure chest full of gold coins, they fail to to heed the warnings of a wise old psychic who had foretold that they would encounter trouble with a very nasty and protective Leprechaun.
On his 1000th birthday, a mean Leprechaun gets to choose a bride by making her sneeze three times, then she's his...only the bride he chooses is the daughter of his slave (who fouls up the wedding) so Leprechaun must wait until his 2000th birthday to claim the woman of his nightmares. The descendant of the woman he wanted to marry already has a boyfriend: a brave young boy named Cody, who lives with his swindler uncle Morty and together they run a tour company called Darkside Tours. Leprechaun soon wakes up, kills a bunch of people and kidnaps his bride to be. It's soon up to Cody to save her, and only wrought iron can destroy a Leprechaun. Morty has an idea, but it soon goes horribly wrong when he gets too greedy. Cody ventures into Leprechaun's home to save Bridget, but little does he know that a leprechaun's home has many surprises.

The original draft featured several scenes and subplots cut out that were even filmed, the love triangle between Bridget, Cody, and Ian was a much larger plot point, and he was a main character who appeared in scenes that took place after his death in the finished film. After Cody dropped Bridget off at the Go-Kart place there was dialogue mentioning how Ian and Bridget had dated in the past, and Ian used to bully Cody around. Scenes at the Go-Kart track included Bridget hanging out with her friend Mandy, and another friend of Ian's named Lyle trying really hard to flirt with Bridget . Lyle took Bridget home instead of Ian and got rejected by her and was lured into a wood chipper instead of lawn mower blades. Ian was set to appear at his place, demanding to know where Bridget was and why his friend Lyle was found dead. After Cody convinced Ian of the Leprechaun with the gold coin, he decided to help him, but he secretly wants her for himself and later tried to push Cody in-front of the go-kart the Leprechaun is driving. He is later fooled by an illusion of Bridget in the Leprechaun's lair in the final act of the film, giving her what he believed was the real coin he stole from Cody but Cody actually gave him the false one, and Ian is killed by the Leprechaun.
This resulted in reshoots where Ian's role was reduced to two scenes, and the characters of Lyle and Mandy were cut out completely. See more »
A direct quote from the first movie reveals the leprechaun's age to be 600 years, not 2000. It is, however, never stated that this is the same Leprechaun from the first film. The fact that the Leprechaun was killed in the first film, supports this. See more »
Leprechaun 2, aka 4 funerals and a wedding, the leprechaun is back and he wants his bride for his 2000th birthday! I know it's silly, but I love the Leprechaun series so much, it's just so enjoyable and fun to watch. Especially if you love horror films as much as I do. Warwick Davis also reprises his famous role as the leprechaun, which is a major plus, since he's really the only one who can do it. You also notice some other "little" stars in the bar sequence that Warwick has made famous throughout the years. Yeah, the story is a little gross, but I think that's why I loved it.
Leprechaun is back to reclaim his bride, she sneezes once, she sneezes twice, she'll be his bride when she sneezes thrice! And he's gonna love her... to death! In today's world, her name is Bridget and she has a relationship with a cute young orphan, Cody, he is taken care of by his alcoholic con artist uncle. When Cody and Bridget get into a fight, Cody comes back to Bridget's house to apologize, little do they know that a friend of their's has just been splattered by a lawn mower, thanks to our friend, the leprechaun! He also makes Bridget sneeze three times and takes her to his haunting layer, but Cody has a piece of his gold! The leprechaun must have it back!
Leprechaun 2 has much more great humor, like the scene where he and Cody's uncle are drinking, and it was just so hilarious to see a leprechaun drunk. "Drink all you want... drink all you can... you can't beat me... 'cause I'm a lepre-can! Mmmph! Chaun!" LOL! I loved that line, please, watch this movie if you are in the correct mood or enjoy the series. Don't take it so seriously, otherwise, you're looking for the wrong kind of movie.
