|At 14 years old, Lukas is a bit too small for his age, and far too smart for his high school classmates. He's more interested in symphonies and science fairs than food fights and football. But when Lucas finds himself falling in love with a cheerleader, who only has eyes for the school's top jock, he grows desperate for her attention, Even if it means risking his pride and his neck at the big game.|
"Highly entertaining. A movie for the underdog in all of us. Clint Morris, Moviehole
Editor's NoteTeenage Lucas (Corey Haim) is more interested in the wonders of science and the beauty of insects than football and parties. His problems begin when he falls in love with an attractive cheerleader (Kerri Green of GOONIES) during the summer, but when school begins again she completely forgets him. LUCAS also features Charlie Sheen, Winona Ryder, and Jeremy Piven.

Lucas is one of the best and most underrated movies from 80`s. It is a great look at teenage friendship and love. The movie is perfectly done to where everyone can relate to a lot of the characters, especially Lucas, who was portrayed excellently by Corey Haim in his best performance. I highly recommend this excellent movie to everyone.
