Really really funny.. in the worst possible way.
11 January 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

My favourite thing about this terrible film are the accents.. not since Natascha McElhone's attempt at the Irish accent in The Devil's Own have i heard such terrible Irish accents. The leprechaun clearly has some sort of strange Yorkshire accent (english), though in fairness he does sometimes sound a bit like he's from Cork - but most of the time he sounds like he's a grumpy little ginger man from coronation street.

The next great thing about the film - the location. Looks like it was filmed in California. Looks precisely nothing like Ireland, and the house which is central to it is clearly an American lodge. In the first five minutes there is an American Lincoln limousine with apparently Irish number-plates which show it to be from Kildare.

The story's great... it has it all - leprechauns from northern england, property development, American landscapes... all tied together with a brilliant 5 second refrain of trad flute music which is repeated over and over in an annoying loop. I love this film!
