The Luck of the Irish is a 2001 American Disney Channel original movie. A 15-year-old basketball player Kyle Johnson (Ryan Merriman) is depending on a gold charm for luck as he learns that he is a leprechaun on the side of his mother (Marita Geraghty). He needs to get it back to break a spell controlled by an evil leprechaun named Seamus McTiernen (Timothy Omundson), who stole the coin.
Just realized this movie turned 20 this year makes me feel old. It was kinda fun growing up on it but not really a great movie. The beginning is long and drawn out but once we get to understanding the plot point aka goal/motivation behind Seamus, well the action picked up. Only time we watch it is for St. Patricks Day.
