Accent on Magical!
6 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Awesome magical movie with Irish myth creatures, Romeo & Juliet, some original funny parts thrown in - I give it a 10! New Yorker Jack Woods (Randy Quaid) rents a summer cottage in Ireland, where he has a run-in with a local beauty. Then he has another - he's the 1st human to discover Leprechan leader Seamus Maldoon & his family living there! While keeping his hesitant friendship with them secret, Jack fixes things up with the girl, Kathleen, & falls in love. Meanwhile, Mickey Maldoon sneaks into the Trooping Fairy (aka Fairy) midsummer ball with friends - & falls for Princess Jessica. But as the "Troopers" & Solitary Fairies (aka Leprechans) are natural enemies, neither Seamus nor King Boric (Roger Daltry) is pleased. Nor is Grogan, Jesssica's hothead cousin who wants revenge for the crashed party. When Mickey refuses to fight, his friend does - & is killed, since the Grand Banshee (Whoopi Goldburg) punishes fighting fairies with mortality. Mickey kills Grogan in return, starting war. (Farmiliar - play where the lovers' families are enemies, girl's cousin kills man's friend, man kills him?)The 2 escape their feuding families, but their friends die in battle - & unlike "Romeo & Juliet", Nature falls apart while the Little People neglect it. Jack is asked to make peace - but when Kathleen discovers a shocking secret about him, he has problems & a need for peace of his own. This is a great movie w/action, fantasy, romance, & humor - not to mention Ireland's beauty surrounding it. A classic not to be missed!
