dmc102: What a fantastic movie!
I watched this movie originally because it was supposed to be one of those “so bad its good” flicks, but when I saw it, it kicked ass! The story was clever and interesting, it never got boring and it had a good start, middle and end. Why do critics put this down so much? Its the most fun movie I’ve seen in ages! Bring on the sequels (could anyone tell me if they are any good?)

DMelli2: I thought 2 was better than this, 3 was okay, 4 was horrible, 5 I thought was good, everyone else thought was horrible and 6 was horrible. BTW, just in case you were wondering what my opinion on this one is, I thought it was kinda bad.

DarkSchumyFan: What a classic this movie is. It’s really pathetic seeing hard-@$$ “film buffs” rip on Leprechaun for having a stupid plot and not being scary at all, and seeing this film in the bottom 100 only makes me love it even more.
While the sequels may(or may not) have been better, none of them can match this film for the sheer amount of “moments” it has. The Leprechaun antics that just split your sides. So many to choose from.
Whether it’s the Leprechaun driving the toy truck, on a tricycle, riding a skateboard, or taking 90degree turns at 100mph in a wheelchair.
My personal favorite though is when the Leperchaun teleports to the back of Tori’s jeep, lets go, can’t even stand up straight(“Whooaaa”) crashes into a fence. Then he gets up and skates off as if he’s been skating profesionally for about 20 years. A close second is the Leprechaun rolling that pickup with a pitchfork on a go cart.

Adam mar: I can’t believe many people hated this movie. I mean, it was funny and not scary, but not stupid. People should give movies a chance just like food.

Dudical: I never knew this movie was a horror.. I’ve always thought of it as a comedy/family film, and I love it. Warwick Davis is awesome, and the replay value of this movie is extremly high. Also, Jennifer Aniston’s bluejeaned ass really is nice… though I never noticed it until I watched this as an adult.
