Their love re-ignites a feud between the leprechauns and the fairies, which escalates into a war. The Grand Banshee warns of terrible consequences and Jack Woods is chosen to make peace.

Seamus Muldoon: [glancing at Jack's photo of Kathleen] Ah, isn't she a magnificent woman?
Mary Muldoon: She's pretty enough - in an ugly, human kind of a way. They'd make a fine couple.
[they laugh]
Jack Woods: OK, OK, *thank* you...

Very good
9 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

A classic Romeo and Juliet story with a twist/different ending. A very good movie. Colm Meaney and Stephen Moore are very funny. This movie was acted well and dialogue was punctual. Whoopie Goldberg was well cast as a leader of mythical beings, with an attitude. A find indeed.
