Leprechaun in the Hood (2000)
Leprechaun 5: Leprechaun in the Hood
Nomination Year: 2001
SYNOPSIS: In the distant past (the big-afro 1970s), Mack Daddy (Ice-T) stole a bunch of jewelry and a flute from our old pal, the Leprechaun. He also had a funky special medallion which transformed the Lep into an ugly statue, allowing him to get away with it.
In the present, three young rappers (Postmaster P, Stray Bullet, and Butch) are looking for a break, so they meet up with a local music mogul (Mack Daddy sans afro). He declines to help them, so they break into his place one night and steal gold, jewelry, the flute (which can make even the crappiest musician sound wonderful), and this funky medallion. The Leprechaun wakes up after the medallion is removed, and begins to hunt down both Mack Daddy for past indignities, and the rappers for having his gold. Meanwhile, Mack Daddy needs the flute and medallion back, and the rappers are still trying to hit it big.
The Lep taps into the pimp lifestyle as well, leading to some truly impressive cinematic atrocities.

I Do Not, As You Say, Dig
"If the physical is only metaphysical, then we need a metaphysical option to deal with a physical problem. You dig?"
"That's a Good Plan, Post."
Their dreams shattered, Post and Butch now have to cope with the loss of their career and their friend. But wait! Butch comes up with a plan, the idea for which he got from reading Leprechauns for Dummies! You see, Leprechauns are the Dark Elves of Satan, and if they smoke 4-leaf clovers, you can temporarily stop their powers. But the only way to get close to this lecherous Leprechaun is to roll the clovers into joints, dress up in drag, and get invited to his hotel room.
