Leprechaun (1993)

Director: Mark Jones

Stars: Warwick Davis, Jennifer Aniston, Ken Olandt, Mark Holton, Robert Hy Gorman

Dan O'Grady comes home to his wife, after stealing gold from a leprechaun. That night the leprechaun comes to his house to collect his gold and punish the O'Grady's. Dan traps the leprechaun in a crate with a four leaf clover on top. Ten years later, J.D. Reding buys the old O'Grady house, and he moves with his daughter Tory from L.A. to The Mid-West. J.D. hires a local group of guys to paint the house. While cleaning up the basement, the leprechaun was set free from the crate. They all have to kill the leprechaun or turn over all of the gold.

This movie was Jennifer Aniston first movie. Everyone has to get a start somewhere. Her character was pretty annoying. It was a period of time in movie where anyone that was from Southern California was the most uptight, pampered spoiled soul that existed. That whole added character flaw was just too over the top. Ozzie was a "special" or slow adult that was really child-like that swallowed a gold piece because he's just too special. Oh, no.

They just tried to make this movie too funny. It was so far away from funny that the humor was scary. The entire movie took place in one day. She just meet these people, and she is caring for them in hopes to go out with the f*ckable one. Sadness. The make-up for the leprechaun was great as was the acting, but the one liners were killed with Elm St. series. The whole shoe polishing part was a bit too much, and it really did not make much sense to me. He would wipe the shoes then throw them in 
the dirt. It would have been better to just leave that scene out.

Lame movie with lame deaths. This is the first of many Leprechaun movies, so many more to cover. It was not fun. Watch for the fun of it, but it is not a great movie by any means. Enjoy.
