When Emily Woodrow and her friends happen on a treasure chest full of gold coins, they fail to to heed the warnings of a wise old psychic who had foretold that they would encounter trouble with a very nasty and protective Leprechaun.
On his 1000th birthday, a mean Leprechaun gets to choose a bride by making her sneeze three times, then she's his...only the bride he chooses is the daughter of his slave (who fouls up the wedding) so Leprechaun must wait until his 2000th birthday to claim the woman of his nightmares. The descendant of the woman he wanted to marry already has a boyfriend: a brave young boy named Cody, who lives with his swindler uncle Morty and together they run a tour company called Darkside Tours. Leprechaun soon wakes up, kills a bunch of people and kidnaps his bride to be. It's soon up to Cody to save her, and only wrought iron can destroy a Leprechaun. Morty has an idea, but it soon goes horribly wrong when he gets too greedy. Cody ventures into Leprechaun's home to save Bridget, but little does he know that a leprechaun's home has many surprises.Written by

A leprechaun is revived on St Patrick Day by a hobo's bottle of liquor, and then tries to claim the bride he promised he would marry 1000 years ago. She is captured and held prisoner inside his tree-house home, with her slacker boyfriend and con-artist uncle quickly coming to the rescue. But can they outsmart this creature, who makes up in cunning and sadism what he lacks in height and strength?
A sequel to an original notable only for an early appearance by Jennifer Aniston, this is about on a par with its low-budget predecessor. The lead lovers are so utterly lacking in anything approaching acting ability or charisma you'll find yourself cheering on Warwick Davis all the way. He, as the Leprechaun, is about the only component that keeps the film going, and his witty one liners and nasty methods of disposing of anyone who stands in his way are a constant delight. It's just a shame that his restricted growth has firmly pigeon-holed him into roles like this, he deserves more than to play Ewoks and Dwarfs his entire career. Eventually though, even his talents (including a fantastic Irish accent(!) ) cannot save a duff script, and the end result is a entirely forgettable film which is only worth watching as a last resort rental. And there's another four sequels to go after this. Oh, joy.. 4/10
P.S Gets my award for most obvious body double ever used for a nude scene. Watch it, and you'll see what I mean..
