ST. PATRICK’S DAY: The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns (1999)

magical legend of the leprechauns

Erin go bragh from Alcohollywood! To celebrate everyone’s favorite drinking holiday, we invoke the luck of the Irish with the Hallmark TV special The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns, a three-hour epic slog starring Whoopi Goldberg and Randy Quaid! The movie follows a dumpy American visiting Ireland, falling in love, and interfering with the class warfare of magical Irish creatures. Along the way, we see a bevy of beloved Irish and Scottish actors shaming themselves, while terrible special effects and school-play production design assaults the eyes. Luckily, we’ve got just the drink and game to endure the magical legend in time for St. Patty’s Day!
