Finally, I have found it.
10 July 2007 | by (Chattanooga, TN) – See all my reviews

For years I have asked friends, family and strangers if they ever saw this 'ABC Weekend Special' and have only had one person even acknowledge it existed. This person made this acknowledgment only after seeing it air at the same time I did and even she forgot it later on. I knew I did not dream this show/movie. As it turns out it was an ABC Weekend Special per the IMDb. It was shot on video and is about a boy who wishes for "all the money in world" after he catches a leprechaun. When he does this, the doors of a nearby barn fly open and currency of all kinds comes flying out. I really don't think any barn could hold all the money in the world, but it did in this case. The money soon turns out to bring nothing but misery for the boy as he can not spend the loot because "it is his". He tries giving some to his friends but it flies right back out of their hands. The leprechaun tells him, "You didn't wish for friends..." I really don't recall him not wishing for friends either. Maybe I was too young to understand whatever lesson ABC wanted me to learn but I recall learning nothing back then and being very disappointed with the story of the boy who wished for all the money in the world.
