Movie Info

Corey Haim plays 13-year-old Lucas, a bespectacled, bookish type who attracts school bullies like a magnet. Lucas befriends 16-year-old Maggie (Kerri Green); she wants to be "just friends," while he'd like a more meaningful relationship. The boy introduces the girl to a world of intellectual pursuits of which she'd been previously unaware. She enjoys the attention, but is physically attracted to football jock Cappie Roew (Charlie Sheen), and becomes a cheerleader to be nearer to the young

It's hard to think of another movie where so many young performers have so forcefully announced themselves to the world.

A realistic look at a teen's coming-of-age.

Haim is engaging in this tale of a lonely teen.

Highly entertaining. A movie for the underdog in all of us.

Audience Reviews for Lucas

Lucas is cute for maybe two seconds and then you sort of want to through a rock at his nerdy head. I think it's funny that Charlie Sheen is supposed to be this Hottie Mchotterson and Wino is this geeky tomboy. Total role reversal. And Jeremy Piven! Whoa, time warp.

This romantic teen comedy is charming and heartfelt, I really like it. Plus, it has a great cast. I highly recommend it.

Wow, can't believe this movie wasn't a big hit back in the day. But then again THE kind of movie I'm the biggest fool for are coming of age films, so perhaps I like them better than most do. I thought this movie was excellent. I'd heard of it but actually didn't have it planned to watch it tonight, but it caught my eye and I was glued. Definitely watch it if you haven't ever seen it and you enjoy coming of age films!

Sweet coming of age comedy that perfectly captures the awkward high school years. Shatters "teen movie" clichés every step of the way. Corey Haim, who heads a talented cast, is excellent as the bespeckled, picked upon title charcater. Winona Ryder's film debut.
