This movie is a wonderful tale, witty, romantic, etc. The costumes were great and with the all-star cast, they bring the story together in a well-done manner... a real enjoyment to see.

Movie Reviews

Fall in love with Ireland
Tamara Rape | USA | 10/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie literally made me fall in love....with Ireland, it's legends, it's music and especially with a certain leprechaun named Mickey Muldoon (Daniel Betts, a phenominal young actor.) The story was creative while staying true to the old Irish tales, and Shakespear's "Romeo and Juliet" theme was never used to better advantage. There were a few incongruities, and Randy Quaid and Whoopi Goldberg seemed to be cast only for their star-power. Also, while my young teenaged daughters enjoyed the whole movie, the smaller children thought that the sections encompassing the human love story were a bit long. But when the movie focused on the actual "faerie story" it was truly captivating for all involved. The vast majority of the acting was superb, the musical score was enchanting, the special effects were very well done, and the entire experience was extremely enjoyable. I highly recommend this movie for anyone who ever had a romantic bone in their body, ever loved a fairy tale, or ever dreamed of Ireland."
A Wonderful Film - Full of Magic and Whimsey
Kenton Couch | Overland Park, Kansas | 07/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I couldn't beleive two of the negative reviews I saw posted, but was heartened to see the rest were overwhelmingly positive. They should be. This is a lovely, tender, humorous bit of fantasy. The acting is superb, the special effects are some of the best I have ever seen, and the director shows a deft hand in presenting a good script. It is a movie that lingers with you long after you see it, and you often wish there were such a land. Well, there is, and you can visit it every time you watch this movie. Thanks for making this type of movie and for the wonderful job you did on it. Don't let the snobs and other nay-sayers discourage you. The vast majority of us loved it and want more! I'm buying the film because it is a five star work of art."
Suspend Disbelief
Angel by the Coast | California | 10/18/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Before I bought this movie, I read a few of the reviews here on Amazon. Several mentioned that this was poorly made, did not have very good computer imaging, stiff acting, over all not a great movie. Well, I beg to differ. Just as when reading a fairy tale, one must suspend their disbelief. Of course it's not realistic- it's a dang fairy tale. I found the characters to be colorful and enchanting. The story line is classic- about star crossed lovers. The shots of the county and woods are beautiful. The substory about the humans is tender and sweet. The score was a wonderful Irish mix, it made the movie. As for the graphics, I didn't even notice if they were less then perfect because the story is wonderful. Part of the charm is in the imperfections. People waste too much time picking movies apart instead of just enjoying them. This is a movie for dreamers, poets, romantics. If you are a glass half empty kind of person, don't bother. You won't like it anyway."
