The single most phenomenal movie I have ever had the pleasure to watch

2020: From start to finish, this movie carries you on a wild wide of imagination and fantasy, with an outstanding plot, real characters, and a message you;ll never forget. Not to mention the stellar effects and choreography. It should be the cornerstone of every family movie library. An outstanding binding of true American patriotism and respect for cultural heritage has nee before been achieved to this extent. Watching this masterpiece of cinematography has been an experience I will never forget. 10/10, would recommend, watch with your family and everyone you know. Get those up, the world need to know the story of Kyle O'Relliy/Johnson!

Updated 2021: After watching this masterpiece for a second time, I couldn't help but be astonished at the earth-shatteringly realistic depictions of the colorful Irish culture. From the time honored tradition of cobbling, to the plethora of wonderful Irish recipes involving potatoes. Truly a great educational resource for those wishing to learn more about Irish culture. Especially those exciting games, boy did they look fun! And while all this was happening, they still managed to keep Kyle's character uniquely American. As a Clevelander myself, I couldn't help but admire the beautiful blend of the two unique cultures. Again, an absolutely must watch, and now a favorite St. Patrick's Day tradition!

Updated 2022: Third times a charm (get it!)! This movie truly never loses it's cultural significance, especially now in a time so divisive and full of hatred. So many people would do well to learn the message this movie so artistically and touchingly expresses. Looking at you Putin. These core American values should be taught and learned by all, for they are crucial to a good society. Nothing would ever go wrong in a society truly American. Kyle's acceptance and prioritization of his American values over his heritage is a powerful example we all should follow. Truly inspiring, this movie. I've never seen anything quite as remarkable as this.

Pretty Good For a Disney Original Movie

I've never been a big fan of Disney Channel Original Movies but after seeing 'Motocrossed' and liking it, I decided to give 'Luck of the Irish' a chance. I wasn't disappointed. While I didn't like it quite as much as 'Motocrossed', it was still a good movie. It has a great lesson for kids: You should be proud of your heritage. Ryan Merriman also did a great job in this film. I have always been a fan of his work and this movie was no different. The other actors were good as well, though some of them had less than perfect Irish accents. The actor who played his best friend (Glenndon Chatman), however, was painful to watch. His acting was stilted and unbelievable. Now, as far as the plot was concerned, I thought it was pretty creative. It held my attention, anyway. I thought some scenes were a little silly and some of the Irish stereotypes were a little over the top, but I'd have to say that all-in-all, the movie did what I expected it to do. I especially like the ending; it was quite touching. But I won't spoil it for you. I recommend this movie for families to teach their children about being proud of their heritage and wanting to learn about their ancestors. I give this movie 7 out of 10.

Best Disney Channel Movie Ever

This was by far the best "Disney channel original movie" ever. It is funny, good plot, and a great cast. The special effects were kind of corny but so what. This movie is a great family movie and I could watch it 20 times over before I get bored. A personal favorite.This movie is a thousand times better than Cadet Kelly and 10 times better than The Even Stevens Movie but not as good as Get A Clue. A funny, clever, lighthearted movie. Even teenagers will like this movie and that is saying something. This movie probably could have made a lot of money if it had come out in theaters, because Herbie fully loaded did and if Herbie can do it than the Irish sure can. This movie also teaches you a lot about Irish heritage and if you watch close enough you can learn some stuff.10/10
