Movie Info

In this made-for-TV comic fantasy, a teenager finds he's going through some unexpected changes thanks to a little secret his folks have been keeping from him. Kyle Johnson (Ryan Merriman) is a typical American kid who likes girls, plays basketball, and does well with his schoolwork. But one day Kyle learns that his good luck isn't just an accident -- it seems Kyle's mother is actually a leprechaun, and much to Kyle's annoyance, he finds he's turning into one of the little people himself. Luck of the Irish also features Alexis Lopez, Glenndon Chatman, and Henry Gibson.more

Audience Reviews for The Luck of the Irish


I always enjoyed the core story here, lots of Irish heritage around cookie cutter characters is always enough to entertain. Yet the dialogue is weak and sometimes corny, and the acting isn't very impressive.

Sweet movie! My favorite part was when the bad leprechaun shrunk and fell into Lake Erie... He thought the little kid said "Eire" (whatever that means). Gooood family fun for the kids. ;) It syncs up to Skillet's new album perfectly. Kind of creepy...

I love this movie for many reasons like the fact that I am Irish and I play basketball and believe in luck
