Movie Review: Luck of the Irish (2001)

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.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

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.
