Getting Lucky (1990)

Getting Lucky, a largely inept and amateurish exploitation flick, follows the adventures of a stereotypical high school nerd in love with the pretty blonde (and bland) cheerleader. Upon finding a leprechaun in a beer bottle, our hero goes on a series of tepid misadventures on the way to the obligatory happy ending. The film is only worth watching for the memorable, eye-opening scene in which the foibles of the incompetent leprechaun accidentally bring the cheerleader to a shattering orgasm in the middle of history class (Lezlie Z. McCraw is at least as convincing as Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally). Beyond this, expect a ridiculous, insipid waste of time with a vomit-inducing final reel that throws in everything from a barbarian to a nest of hornets.
