Storyline

It was a normal night in Las Vegas, Nevada, all the lights were flashing brightly, until a man with one hand, one eye, and one leg walks into a pawn shop with a statue of a hideous looking Leprechaun. The owner claims it's a good luck charm. The statue also wore a medallion around it's neck. The careless pawn shop owner took off the medallion setting the Leprechaun free, along with his pot of gold that everyone wants and like before, he'll kill anyone who goes near it. Driving into town that night was a young man named Scott who was off to L.A. to go to school. Along the way he meets a sarcastic, but friendly, girl named Tammy. Scott tries gambling but loses everything, so he goes to the pawn shop to pawn his Rolex watch. At the shop, he finds the dead owner and one of Leprechaun's gold coins that grants a wish to its finder.

Easily my favorite of the series. It's the most fun!
4 February 2009 | by Dragoneyed363See all my reviews

After getting the Leprechaun trilogy as one of my gifts for Christmas, I decided to watch them all right away, because I had been dying to view the first. Leprechaun 3 was just overall so much more enjoyable than I expected it to be. The cast and crew just had so much fun with all the material and since they knew they weren't going to make a star-studded masterpiece, they went with the best option and created a hilarious and exciting "camp gem", unlike the second one which took itself too seriously, and look how that turned out.

Leprechaun 3 is just non-stop laugh out loud entertainment. With rhymes like the leprechaun makes in this one, you can't help but laugh your tail off at how cheesy and humorous the whole film is. Also, I guess since the acting wasn't as low as you can get in some movies of this caliver, it made the movie even more tolerable and likable, and since the leprechaun was more lovable, the film was more lovable. Plus, the main guy in this film is not too bad on the eyes, such as eye candy Jennifer Aniston in the first.

Overall, there has got to be something anyone and everyone could like about this film. It deserves higher appreciation than the first and second put together for being so incredibly fun and humorous, like I have already mentioned, and is worthy of any positive reception it receives in fact, in honest my opinion.
