No positive messages in nearly unwatchable computer-animated movie.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dwegons and Leprechauns is an excruciatingly bad movie from 2014 with scary-looking computer-animated characters with annoying voices, iffy humor, and awful musical interludes about, among other things, donuts. Perhaps most disturbing is that early in the movie an elderly man is shown having a heart attack and dying in his kitchen. Between this death and these monstrous-looking (and talking) "Dwegons," the whole movie is one big nightmare waiting to happen. There really isn't anything redeeming about this movie for kids or parents. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
For parents, the iffy humor and annoying voices make DWEGONS AND LEPRECHAUNS pretty much unwatchable. For kids, the scary-looking "Dwegons" and the death by heart attack of an elderly man at the beginning make this film a nightmare waiting to happen. Also, there are quite a few pointless musical interludes filled with songs about, among other things, donuts. Make no mistake: This is an excruciatingly bad movie.
Even if the story was easy to follow (it isn't), it's difficult to stay focused on the action, such as it is. There really is nothing redeeming or remotely good about what's going on in this movie.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
