There's a war goin' on in this bit o' blarney, but it's more than the feud between the fairies and the leprechauns, upon which most of the overwrought tale hangs. It's also a struggle between competing, derivative story lines in this bloated, plodding film that can't decide what it wants to be. It's part Romeo and Juliet, via the seemingly doomed romance of the princess fairy and teenage leprechaun; part contemporary romance, with an uncomfortable-looking Randy Quaid in the romantic lead; and a large part unfocused fable that fills out its Irish stew with a feud reminiscent of Ireland's Catholic-Protestant conflict while throwing in fantastical Braveheart-style battle scenes and Riverdance-like interludes. The most stunning scenes are the fairy sequences that take place in a futuristic castle in the sky (think Wizard of Oz meets Star Wars) and the epic battles with innovative leprechaun bark-and-stick armor. It all makes for a jumble of a long movie, which originally aired as a miniseries on NBC. --Valerie J. Nelson
I was looking out for Count Grogan.
May his Fairy bones rot!
I thought I could drop on him all quiet-like, you know, for a little flattering.
I'll flatter him, quiet or not!
Your brother talks a good fight, Jericho.
If talking was all it took, he'd be Heavyweight Champion of all Ireland!
That's a very energetic way of doing the weeding, Jack.
Seamus. I'm not gardening, I'm practicing my swing.
Yeah. Yeah, my golf swing. You know, this whole area, this'd make a perfect golf course, don't you think?
No doubt, no doubt about it... I don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about.
What are you staring at?
The fairest beauty that ever stood before the eyes of a man since Helen danced her willing way on the wondering walls of Troy!
It's only a gift of words that you shower me, but I have to say that they shine!
Oh You Shine, Princess Mine, You Shine!
