... director David Seltzer has kept it low-key, sweet and personal -- it's like a nice "Afterschool Special."
August 23, 2016
Lucas is as irresistible as its slight, brilliant, bespectacled 14-year-old hero (Corey Haim).

No, it's not a daringly original plot and yes, it is sentimental, but Mr. Seltzer handles his small story as gently as Lucas handles the baby locust he finds in the road.

Explores the downside of peer pressures in high school and the high value given to sports.

It would be tragic if this film would get lost in the shuffle of "teenage movies." This is a movie that is as pure and true to the adolescent experience as Truffaut's The 400 Blows.

It's a poignant and effective character study that manages not only to explore important teenage issues without condescending to the audience, but to offer an upbeat ending without descending into mawkishness.

Having carefully and sensitively drawn an interesting character and put him in an interesting place, the filmmakers start painting with their fingers and ultimately provide a very familiar picture.
