The second couple is a leprechaun named Mickey and a trooping fairy named Jessica, whose newfound love for each other is challenged by long-running blood feuds between their species. Their side of the story is essentially a LighterAndFluffier retelling of ''RomeoAndJuliet'', but as a whole this film is not as Light and Fluffy as it sounds, staying clear of TastesLikeDiabetes territory.

A MadeForTVMovie by Hallmark, about two couples who are dealing with very different romantic strife and yet have a large amount of impact on the others' stories.

The first couple is a man from New York, employed by a developer company to look for land in Ireland to use for resorts, and Kathleen, the plucky and surprisingly not redheaded Irish woman he meets there.

The second couple is a leprechaun named Mickey and a trooping fairy named Jessica, whose newfound love for each other is challenged by long-running blood feuds between their species.

The fairies' side of the story is essentially a LighterAndFluffier retelling of RomeoAndJuliet.

Not as Light and Fluffy as it sounds, staying well clear of TastesLikeDiabetes territory.

A 1999 two-part MadeForTVMovie by Hallmark, about two couples who are dealing with very different romantic strife and yet have a large amount of impact on the others' stories.

The first couple is a man from New York, York (Randy Quaid), employed by a developer company to look for land in Ireland to use for resorts, and Kathleen, the plucky and (and surprisingly not redheaded redheaded!) Irish woman he meets there.

The fairies'
species. Their side of the story is essentially a LighterAndFluffier retelling of RomeoAndJuliet.

Not
''RomeoAndJuliet'', but as a whole this film is not as Light and Fluffy as it sounds, staying well clear of TastesLikeDiabetes territory.

** MagicalUnderpinningsOfReality: And their job is so essential that when they become distracted from it by their war with the leprechauns, [[CosmicKeystone the world's natural weather patterns collapse into chaos]].

* RuleOfDrama: The plot of the StarCrossedLovers just happens to threaten all of existence, or at least everything living, thanks to the war between the fairies and leprechauns distracting the former from their duties so that the world's weather goes haywire.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Both sets of the fairy lovers' parents, at the end of the film.
* DeadpanSnarker: The fairy Chancellor.

* DuelToTheDeath: [[spoiler:Mickey and Grogran.]]
* EverybodyLives
* FakingTheDead: Mickey and Jessica, as a last-ditch attempt to get their families to reconcile. [[spoiler: It works, but only after they die for real. Then [[UnexplainedRecovery they get better]].]]
* [[FeudingFamilies Feuding Species]]: the Fairies and the Leprechauns.
* HeroicSacrifice: Mickey and Jessica, twice - first their love [[spoiler:(which doesn't work)]], then their lives.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Hey, [[Series/DoctorWho Cassandra]] is Mickey's mom!
* LargeHam: Pretty much every character gets their chance, but special mention must go to the magma-ish gatekeeper, who is a hammy giant.
* {{Leprechaun}}: Averted to a degree: while leprechauns are stereotypically Irish, wear green coats, and can turn invisible, they are only about a foot tall, are represented by all major genders (or at least one gender plus Mary and the female dancers), and are far from the only mythical creatures living in Ireland.
* MasqueradeBall: Three guesses as to where Mickey and Jessica meet, and the first two don't count.
* MightyWhitey: Lampshaded by Kathleen, who makes a snarky remark about how the American has come to save the Irish peasants from destruction. Jack insists this isn't the case.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The antidote vial breaks because Kathleen apparently couldn't be bothered to keep it somewhere safer than her hand.
* PaintingTheFrostOnWindows: It's what the fairies do.
* ThePowerOfLove
* SceneryPorn: Oh, so much.
* SlobsVersusSnobs: The Leprechauns and the Fairies.
* StarCrossedLovers: Again, Mickey and Jessica.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Mary and the Queen.
* [[WhatTheHellHero What the Hell, Seamus?]]:
-->'''Seamus:''' "I can't [negotiate with the Fairies]. I have my pride."\\
'''Jack:''' "What's that against your son's ''life''?"
