The idea in itself to let a drunk leprechaun play one of the leads is brilliant. That he can't even count the wishes he is suppose to grant or remember his spells only adds to the fun.

The story is in the same spirit as "Revenge of the Nerds" and Bill the towelboy falls for Krissi the cheerleader. In his way stands Krissi's mom, the jocks and society itself.

Classic scenes include a tennis racket being inserted in someone's rectum and Bill being shrunken and ending up inside Krissi's panties.

This movie was played on TV back in the day and then lost for what seemed to be forever. But the Troma team are reviving it and giving it the release it deserves.

Special features include a hilarious and informative story about the making of Getting Lucky from writer/director Michael Paul Girard.

Enjoy!

I saw this movie once, at least 10 years ago, on 'USA Up All Night w/ Gilbert Gottfried' and I still recall most of the movie. I remember it being really corny, but quite funny. This film is very much along the same lines as "Zapped" and "Revenge of the Nerds" with a 90's twist. And the scene where he shrinks and he's in the girl's underwear is a classic scene that sticks in my memory to this day.

Some movies are so bad, they're good. This one is so bad...................it's abominable. It's the perfect storm of terrible acting, cringe-worthy cinematography, and really poor writing. And, did I mention the terrible acting? I assume this was some kid's high school film project. As such, I guess it's not a bad little effort. If somebody was really trying to make a movie, though, that's a shame.

I should mention a couple of pluses: the story nicely adheres to some traditional morality, and (out of nowhere) the film includes a horseback mounted barbarian. For what purpose, you ask? I have no idea, but it seemed funny at the time. All that can be said of this film is that you will pass 90 minutes of your life without having to think too hard. It was probably perfect for late night TV in the dorms.

A nerd chases his dream girl, and finds help from a tiny leprechaun in a beer bottle, with a debilitating drinking problem.

And it's Troma.

That's all you really need to know. This movie is raunchy and funny as all hell, and anyone who can appreciate Llyod Kaufman's sense of humor should buy this.

If you're a fan of such classics as "Revenge of the Nerds" and "Weird Science", "Getting Lucky" will be right up your alley. It's classic nerd-getting-his-day sort of film that pulls out all the stops and does not fail to entertain. And come on, when a major character of a film is a drunken leprechaun, who can resist?

As a young teen, I really enjoyed this film and I have awaited it's DVD release for a number of years.
This is a low budget teen comedy with a twist!
Personally, I like the oddball music and have always thought that Lezlie McGraw was positively beautiful!
A leprauchaun helps a nerd to get his dream girl!
He, however, helps to get him in trouble too!
Check this rare comedy out!

I watch a lot of low budget movies -- the kind that are so bad they're good. Sometimes it's as much fun to chuckle at the bad acting, cheap sets and gaping plot holes as it is to watch a movie with a huge budget and great effects. There are a few low budget pics that are enjoyable beyond the cheese factor. Getting Lucky is one of these.

To sum up the plot, nerdy Bill wants to save the environment, make enough cash to go to college and date a hot cheerleader. When he finds an alcoholic leprechaun in a beer bottle while recycling all his dreams start to come together. Kind of. Mostly. In a round about way. The plot runs from the absurd to the banal. Plenty of jokes were more relevant when this movie was made, but that's to be expected. It's funny enough to keep the viewers interest.

What's great about Getting Lucky is that there's more to it than just jokes about trying to get into a cheerleader's pants. Yes, this is a sex comedy, with very little nudity, and some seriously funny scenes. The ending has to be seen to be believed. Getting Lucky is one of my favorite low budget flicks ever. If you're a B movie fan, you won't be disappointed.

I just watched the dang Troma movie Getting Lucky. And while we're on the dang subject of luck, let me say that I ain't got any. My dang toilet won't flush, we have a dang pest problem in our house, and I ain't been laid in a few dang months. And I have a dang bladder problem. I had to urinate two dang times just while watching this crappy movie! Getting Lucky is from Troma, of course. I've been a dang Troma fan since Justin Bieber was in dang diapers. Sure a lot of the dang movies they put out are crap, but I loved that dang Poultrygeist movie and a few of the dang Toxic Avenger movies. And Tales From The Crapper starring that dang sexy broad, Julie Strain. However, I did not love Getting Lucky. It's not very dang funny, and there isn't a whole lot of dang nudity for a teen sex comedy. Heck, I've seen more dang nudity in a hemorrhoid cream commercial. The dang bottom line is you ain't getting lucky if you're watching this dang movie.
