MOVIE REVIEW: Leprechaun 2

"She sneezes once, she sneezes twice, she'll be me bride when she sneezes thrice."

On Leprechaun's 1000th birthday, he gets the chance to make a woman his bride by getting her to sneeze three times. But her father spoils his attempt, so he has to wait another 1000 years before he can try again. He decides to make the woman's descendant his bride, but her boyfriend isn't going to let him have her without a fight.

The film is slow and drags a lot. I was bored and kept wondering when the leprechaun would kill someone. When that finally happened, it was disappointing because the gore was shown off screen.

The acting from the two leads is atrocious. Leprechaun's bride is one of the worst actresses I've ever seen and I could barely watch her - even her scream is terrible. But there are funny cameos from Michael MacDonald (MadTV) and Clint Howard.

This film isn't as funny as its predecessor, but it still provides a few laughs. Especially the scene where they trick the leprechaun into getting drunk. But I didn't find the few laughs I got from this film to be worth witnessing the horrible acting and dull scenes.

Rating: 2/5

I really like this movie... if I remember correctly the writers are the same guys responsible for WRONG TURN 2 and CANDYMAN 3.

That opening quote alone makes the movie great!
