Movie Reviews

Getting Lucky "The Leprechaun Story"
F. Hammarlund | London, UK | 10/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The idea in itself to let a drunk leprechaun play one of the leads is brilliant. That he can't even count the wishes he is suppose to grant or remember his spells only adds to the fun.

The story is in the same spirit as "Revenge of the Nerds" and Bill the towelboy falls for Krissi the cheerleader. In his way stands Krissi's mom, the jocks and society itself.

Classic scenes include a tennis racket being inserted in someone's rectum and Bill being shrunken and ending up inside Krissi's panties.

This movie was played on TV back in the day and then lost for what seemed to be forever. But the Troma team are reviving it and giving it the release it deserves.

Special features include a hilarious and informative story about the making of Getting Lucky from writer/director Michael Paul Girard.

Fantastic Teen Fantasy Comedy!
John D. Seneca | PLAQUEMINE, LOUISIANA | 02/10/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a young teen, I really enjoyed this film and I have awaited it's DVD release for a number of years.
This is a low budget teen comedy with a twist!
Personally, I like the oddball music and have always thought that Lezlie McGraw was positively beautiful!
A leprauchaun helps a nerd to get his dream girl!
He, however, helps to get him in trouble too!
Check this rare comedy out!"
Leprechauns make everything better!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this movie once, at least 10 years ago, on 'USA Up All Night w/ Gilbert Gottfried' and I still recall most of the movie. I remember it being really corny, but quite funny. This film is very much along the same lines as "Zapped" and "Revenge of the Nerds" with a 90's twist. And the scene where he shrinks and he's in the girl's underwear is a classic scene that sticks in my memory to this day."

"A nerd chases his dream girl, and finds help from a tiny leprechaun in a beer bottle, with a debilitating drinking problem.

And it's Troma.

That's all you really need to know. This movie is raunchy and funny as all hell, and anyone who can appreciate Llyod Kaufman's sense of humor should buy this."
