Lucas review

by Rod Garner on 1/2/2009

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.

Product Overview

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.

Editors Note
Note Teenage 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.
Plot Summary
Summary This teen pic takes an uncompromising look at the troubles and "tragedies" of adolescence, when belonging to the in-crowd carries more weight than anything else in the world.| Lucas, a nerdy 14-year-old, has skipped two grades and is having a tough time fitting in with his older classmates. The jocks make fun of him, and the girls barely know that he's alive.| During the summer, Lucas's life is brightened by his new neighbor, who quickly becomes his good friend. Unfortunately, to Lucas she's a lot more than that, and when school begins again he realizes, to his dismay, that Maggie no longer belongs to him alone. Worse yet, when Lucas's jock friend, Cappie, stands up for him in a fight, Maggie falls for the handsome athlete. Filled with jealousy, Lucas doesn't even notice that there's another girl who likes him...
