Overview

Corey Haim plays 13-year-old Lucas, a bespectacled, bookish type who attracts school bullies like a magnet. Lucas befriends 16-year-old Maggie Kerri Green; she wants to be "just friends," while he'd like a more meaningful relationship. The boy introduces the girl to a world of intellectual pursuits of which she'd been previously unaware. She enjoys the attention, but is physically attracted to football jock Cappie Roew Charlie Sheen, and becomes a cheerleader to be nearer to the young athlete. Lucas feels shut out once more, but is comforted to learn that Cappie is not just one more bully but a sensitive kid who sticks up for Lucas when the younger boy is being picked on. Still hoping to impress Maggie, Lucas tries out for the football team himself, threatening legal action when the coach tries to turn him down. This innovative teen-oriented film threatens to come to a hackneyed "big touchdown" climax, but instead goes for a more original finale.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
David Seltzer's excellent film on the relationships between a trio of teenagers is a refreshing break from the run of cliché-ridden movies on this kind of material. The director's script focuses on a young high school kid's crush on a slightly older girl who becomes involved with the school's football star, as it explores the innocence, idealism, perennial infatuation, and alienation of adolescence. All of the characters seem fresh, and it's impossible to tell what will happen from moment to moment. Corey Haim gives a performance of considerable nuance as the "academically accelerated" Lucas, Kerri Green is excellent as the new girl in town, and Charlie Sheen gives one of his best screen performances as the sympathetic jock. Winona Ryder is also notable in her screen debut, as a girl with a crush on Lucas.
