The Luck of the Irish (2001)

A laughably tone deaf attempt to delve into the heritage of White Americans.

Regan Humphrey

Kyle Johnson (Ryan Merrimen) is a lucky guy. He makes impossible shots during school basketball games, he finds money laying around, he aces tests without studying. He’s got everything, except any idea about where he comes from. His parents refuse to talk to him about it, until Kyle’s family coin, the source of his luck, is stolen and suddenly his mother begins to shrink. His parents are forced to tell Kyle the truth: He comes from a long line of leprechauns and if doesn’t get his luck back, he’ll become one too.
