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 saw Lucas for the first time today... more than 20 years since it first came out. I have to admit, I'm a huge 80's fan and even though I was just a kid during the 80's I consider myself to be pretty familiar with the pop culture of the time. However, for some odd reason, I never got around to seeing Lucas. I have to say that, despite the fact that this movie is so old and I've seen movies with similar plots since, this movie still made me teary-eyed. I absolutely adored Corey Haim when I was a young girl and his role as the sweet, vulnerable, yet highly intelligent nerd gave me the fuzzies... the same way he used to when I was young. He, along with the rest of the cast (including Kerri Green, Winona Ryder, and Charlie Sheen), gave a great performance... typical of the 80's teen flicks (with an over-abundance of clichés), but, nonetheless, touching. It's definitely up there with the all time classics: Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink... and any of the flicks including the Brat Pack. Definitely worth seeing if you're in a nostalgic mood and want to revisit the old days of knee-high tube socks and head bands.
