|GREAT uplifting movie. LOVED it.||texasjasmin 09/22/2012 |
| I have seen this movie 2 or 3 times and love it every time I watch it. Will watch it again when it comes on.|
|an endearing film for the whole family||findingavoice 01/14/2007 |
| This is one of those films that lifts one's spirits - - a joy with every viewing. As it explores the stresses within a family it creates a new connection among the principals as a result of the father's effort to save an injured horse and the daughter's love for and belief in both her father and the animal. |
Everyone contributes to this cinematic delight, but Dakota Fanning and Kurt Russell provide the basic elements that make this unlikely success story a heartwarming experience. The horse is pretty special too.

Now college student Scott (John Gatins)–after gambling away his tuition funds–comes into the shop to pawn his Rolex watch and finds the dead owner and the gold coin that brings good luck. But that luck changes quickly when the Leprechaun returns looking for his coin and will stop at nothing to retrieve it. And the assaults continue as the coin passes from person to person.
