There are several things wrong with the Hail Mary play near the end of the movie, in which the
ball is thrown to a wide-open Lucas. First, it was an illegal football play. There can be only one forward pass per play, and the ball had already been thrown forward to Lucas to avoid a sack before Lucas threw it back to the quarterback and ran down field to make the "big catch." In addition, Lucas was never in control of the ball after it was thrown to him a second time, meaning the pass was incomplete when Lucas dropped the ball. Instead, the players treat the ball as being live, leading to Lucas tackling the opposing player and being injured. Lucas was also playing offensive tackle, and would therefore be an ineligible receiver unless the referee was notified, which he was not. See more »
I'm just being nice to her.
Well, stop being nice to her! I don't want you talking to her anymore, I don't want to turn around and see you walking with her and smiling at her. I don't want her in this car on Friday night. We're not giving her any ride to any goddamn dance, she can put her fat ass on the back of Lucas's bike where it damn well belongs!

...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.
