Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this comic fantasy for the family, 9-year-old Molly Wilson (Danielle Lombardi and Stephanie Lombardi) is relocated to Ireland when her father Howard (Tim Matheson) inherits an estate in the Old Sod. However, the Wilsons soon learn their new home has earned the nickname "Misfortune Mansion," as nothing good ever seems to happen to anyone who lives there. True to form, Howard learns that he'll have a pay a hefty tax assessment if he wants to stay in his new home. Molly decides what "Misfortune Mansion" needs is a leprechaun to bring them good luck, but when he calls out for one, she ends up with Lucky (Warwick Davis), whose name turns out to be ironic. A Very Unlucky Leprechaun was the first feature from director Brian Kelly.
