My comment on Luke Was There...
5 June 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought that 'Luke Was There' was a great movie. It shows how some kids (orphans) can get around. How their life can be affected horribly in a blink of an eye. The story line was well written and the performance that Scott Baio gave at such a young age was great. And how that made movie made him excel through movies like 'Bugsy Malone' and 'Zapped!' And TV shows like 'Happy Days' and 'Charles in Charge.' And even though he doesn't make that many television appearances, he's still one of my favorite actors to have ever hit TV. And he's really, really, cute in this film. He's such a sweetheart in this film. Who knew that kind of charisma a kid could give in a heartfelt movie like this one. I mean he plays a sneaky kid, but then again, who isn't?
