Editorial Reviews


A surprisingly engaging story of puppy love and friendship in a teen setting, this film focuses on the title character (Corey Haim), who is nerdy but winningly outgoing. He falls madly for a new girl in town (Kerri Green); since school is out for the summer, he becomes her only friend--until she meets his hunky pal (Charlie Sheen). Meanwhile, Lucas ignores the romantic yearnings of another female pal (Winona Ryder, in her screen debut). Written and directed by David Seltzer, this one is a charmer with substance, featuring strong, open performances by its young cast. It's also fascinating to watch today, more than a decade later, and consider what became of these performers: while Ryder grew to be one of Hollywood's brightest lights, Haim descended into substance abuse, as did Sheen, whose predilection for call girls also made him a talk-show punch line. --Marshall Fine

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie March 10, 2010
By Fred H.
The death of Corey Haim prompted me to come and order this DVD. It was one of his best performances; thinking of it made me sad that he never found his footing as an actor during his adult years.

I realize that this is supposed to be my review and not Roger Ebert's, but I can't help but quote a couple of things he said. About Haim's performance in "Lucas": "He creates one of the most three-dimensional, complicated, interesting characters of any age in any recent movie. If he can continue to act this well, he will never become a half-forgotten child star, but will continue to grow into an important actor. He is that good."

Ebert listed it as one of the top 10 films of 1986. I agree with that assessment. It's a quiet, well-written, beautifully acted movie.

RIP, Mr. Haim.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Throw it to lucas!!!!" February 27, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I can relate very well to this film. I saw it my senior year of high school in 1991, but I didn't notice how true it rang for me until today. Like Lucas, I was unpopular but outgoing. Many students looked down on me because I was in special education and was considered 'stupid'. I also had a crush on a cheerleader and did everything to get her attention. And also like Lucas, my heart was crushed when she decided to date a football player. I was even told by one of the teachers to stick with my own kind (he didn't say those EXACT words, but it sounded that way) when he talked to her about me. The good news was the pain I felt healed in time.
That is why I like Lucas. It is a movie I can relate to, and is full of honesty. Unlike a few other 80s teen films, it doesn't stereotype it's characters. Lucas is not a stereotypical geek because he is interesting, Cappy is not your stereotypical jock because he has a good heart and looks out for Lucas, and Maggie is not your stereotypical high school cheerleader because she doesn't act snotty. Looking back on this film now would be a trip through innocence because many of the main stars have had their share of trouble in recent years. Still, if you want to watch a great film that takes an honest look at teen angst, 'Lucas' hits the right buttons.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just looks like an 80's teen movie January 20, 2004
Well, maybe I guess it is an 80's teen movie, but unlike other 80's teen movies this film is intelligent and has a heart.
The other movies from this genre are plot driven. Honestly, how many different titles has the story of "Can't Buy me Love" had? This movie however has taken a different perspective to look at teenage years and took the approach to drive the story from the characters, not plot.
The movie is brave by not taking the easy way out (except for one scene which I won't ruin) and I respect that. It also makes the movie less predictable and more entertaining to watch for us the audience.
I think this movie is the best movie of the teen movie genre. I loved Ferris Beuller, Sixteen Candles, and the other John Hughes greats. Those films were also loads more humerous too, but Lucas aims to do more than achieve laughs and I applaude its efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best teen movie I've ever seen June 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"Lucas" is a rare gem, a movie which is filled with the usual stereotypes (geek, jock, nerd, etc) except that this movie digs below the surface to show us what is beneath the stereotype !
And it also plays against character in that the jock (Charlie Sheen) is actually friends with the geek (Corey Hains). The final scenes of Breakfast Club are awesome because that is when the barriers are broken down, but you must sit thru the entire movie to get to that part. In Lucas, the entire movie is the good part. For those of you who don't know, Kerri Green in her best performance (whatever happened to her anyway?) moves to a new town during the summer and bumps into Lucas (Corey Haines) and they become fast friends, but once school starts she begins to make other friends and eventually falls for the jock (Charlie Sheen) which begins a sort-of competition between the 2 of them to win her heart. Charlie Sheen wins ofcourse and there is an absolutely wonderful seen under a highway overpass between Corey Haines and Kerri Green where he discusses the fact that guys like him are destined to lose due to the laws of nature (this scene is heart breaking because it is so true). However, while many films would have ended there, this film continues because Lucas won't give up. I won't give it away but it involves a football game (these scenes are the only ones that go a bit too far in my opinion) and in the end Lucas does indeed win the competition and the hearts of others, but not in the way you think. The ending of this film LITERALLY gave me goosebumps, I wanted to stand and cheer for him.
This is a great movie with great performances all around. If you ever went to High School or ever fell in love with someone who did not love you back, you owe it to yourself to get this movie, you won't be dissapointed

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Teen Movie April 30, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Let me tell you, Lucas is one of the best teen movies ever! In an age when people think teens have no feelings, and are sex, and party crazy, it is refreshing to see a film like this. A true gem sbout the joys and pains of growing up. Excellent performances. It is too bad Corey Haim made bad movie choices afterward, because I believe he has talent. Anyway, he wil always have this one. Charlie Sheen, and Kerri Green are also marvelous. Do yourself a favor, and check it out.
