Product Description

Meet Bill Higgins, the nerdy 'Towel Boy' of Middleville High. All he could wish for is to clean up the environment and score a hot date with cheerleader babe, Krissi Chackler. Standing in his way is muscle-bound, meathead Tony Chanuka. Enter the most unlikely hero- Lepky, a four-inch leprechaun confined to a beer bottle, who can't quite master his micro-super powers. Wacky hijinks ensue as Lepky grants Bill zany wishes which lead to unsuspected transformations and screwy situations on the quest to Getting Lucky!


The last great All-American Teen Sex Comedy of the genre s Golden Age. --Mr Skin

a bodacious example of Z-grade cornball schlock. --DVD Verdict

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Lucky "The Leprechaun Story" October 29, 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars leprechauns make everything better! June 17, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shenanigans June 17, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Teen Fantasy Comedy! February 10, 2009
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very funny September 23, 2010
I was worried by the one-star review by the pretentious wanna-be film critic so rather than buy this I got it as a rental. Then I watched it, then I bought it. I could have saved the rental if I hadn't listened to that oaf. Even my wife found it hysterical, and she really isn't into these adolescent comedies, as are my kids and I. Guaranteed 100% free of intellectual content.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect low budget comedy December 28, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.
