Goofs

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 »

More Than Your Average Brat Pack Movie.
9 December 1998 | by (Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is becoming a classic because of the fine, early performances from Winona Ryder, Charlie Sheen, Corey Haim, even Courtney Thorne-Smith of "Ally McBeal".

It is a unique movie with a love triangle where the viewer wants both guys (Sheen and Haim) to get the girl. But of course both can not.

"Lucas" is about the truths of life and relationships, and how the teenage years bring them to the surface. Another interesting element is the use of insects for symbolism.
