A strange little film that struggles with tone, but overall enjoyable. The cast is super likable. Billy Zane and William Devane are almost always worth the watch. Courtney Halverson is charming and funny, and makes you care about her.
When the movie does physical effects, they work really well. The leprechaun may be a bit odd, but it's also unique. When they opt for CGI though, it really shows, and the cheap effects are winceworthy.
There is a scene late in the movie that wildly drags the tone of the movie into strange on the nose humour that just completely torpedoes the rest of the movie for me.
Still, there's some fun to be had here, if you're not looking for something great. It's a perfectly entertaining popcorn flick to watch on a rainy St. Patrick's Day for some cheesy fun.
