Trivia

Glenbard West High School was used to shoot most of the exterior scenes. The high school's administration agreed to allow Glenbard West to be part of the film only after 20th Century Fox agreed to modify the film so that the original "R" rating was changed to the more family-friendly "PG".

When Maggie drops Lucas off for the first time he leans the seat forward to collect his bike from the back seat and closed the door, not putting the seat back up. Even as Maggie grabs his net and umbrella the seat is still down. But when the camera shifts to the other side of the car, the seat is magically up again. See more »

A Touching and Emotional Teen Drama.
5 December 2003 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Haim gives his overall best performance as the 14-year-old title character who has a crush on new girl Green and they bond during the summer, but by the time school begins, he gets teased by the jocks and Green leaves him out in the cold and has eyes for football hunk Sheen, who has become Lucas's bodyguard. Fraught with rejection and neglect, Lucas attempts to prove himself worthy by trying out for the football team, which he knows is no easy task for a boy his age. Unlike many other teen movies, LUCAS gives us a character that we can actually relate to, and the other characters fit in perfectly. One of the best teen movies of the 80's.
