Your family will feel lucky that you brought this one home!
Howard (Tim Matheson) is a less than successful writer, whose books are of the how-to variety. His wife is deceased and he is a single father to Molly, a lively ten year old. When they inherit an large old mansion in Ireland, Howard is thankful, since his former house was about to be sold out from under him. Molly is less than enthusiastic, however, until she discovers a leprechaun on the property! Yet, this leprechaun doesn't seem to have much magic and does not help her out of bad situations at school or at home. Howard, in the meanwhile, has a new love interest. Will Molly find any happiness on the Emerald Isle? This sweet little story features a wonderful performance by Warwick Davis as the lovable but flawed leprechaun. The other stars are also charming and, of course, the scenery is of the put-your-eye-out type. The ending is a total delight. For those who are always anxious to find good films for the whole family to enjoy, you are going to be in luck if you find this one at the video store or library.
