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 »
...and "Lucas" is still a charming and sentimental little high school campus comedy with a message about what's important in life (and it ain't football). Telling of a goggle-eyed "shrimp" (Haim) with little going for him, save his indomitable spirit, who tries desperately to win the affection of a pretty cheerleader (Green), "Lucas" is a crowd pleasing blast from the past with its priorities in order. In this day when movies with messages are rare, "Lucas" is a good family flick (for 13 and up) worth revisiting.
