Leaping lizards, this is a cute movie!
23 October 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Michael Dennehy lives on a piece of land in Ireland that is the underground home to leprechauns and fairies. He gives tours of his land and ignites the imaginations of those who visit the farm about the fairy folk. His son, John, however, has moved to Denver, where he lives with his wife, son, and daughter. Knowing he will inherit his father's land, John is making plans to build an amusement park on the leprechauns' turf. John flies his father to America for a visit. In reality, however, although he wants to see his dad, John is planning to begin a survey of the land. The fairy folk want none of it and sneak in the old man's luggage on his trip to the new world. There, it is the mythical folks job to convince John and his family that they exist and that their land can not be disturbed. Not an easy task, this one. This is a nice family movie, especially for elementary aged children who can appreciate the slightly more sophisticated plot. The fairy folk are very tiny but cute and all of the actors do their parts quite nicely. The settings are definitely a plus since we get to view the beautiful Ireland and the mile high city. One caution is that there are some scary images involving the darker mythological creatures who also have made the trip across the ocean. However, a finger on the fast forward will pass these scenes by quickly, if a child starts to wimper. All in all, this a nice family friendly film, certain to perk up interest in the folklore of Ireland and to put a smile on the faces of those who sit down to watch it.
