Being the outsider at school is never an easy thing and for 14 year old Lucas who has been accelerated in his schooling it is especially difficult. He is more interested in bugs and symphonies then football and popularity. This all changes after he befriends the new girl in town during summer break, she turns into a cheerleader who only has eyes for the quarterback and Lucas will stop at nothing to get her to notice him. This includes joining the football team! A coming of age film staring C…rey Haim and co-starring Courtney Thorne-Smith, Gary Cole, Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder (in her feature film debut).
Presented in both a 1.33:1 full screen and 1.85:1 anamorphic format the image quality is average. Darker scenes are noticeably lacking in shadow detail and the colors are somewhat muted. There are a couple of spots with noticeable film grain and specks as well.
The audio is billed as a Dolby Digital 4.0 mix but, there is not enough going on in this film to really notice anything special. We also have mono Spanish and stereo French tracks.
Sorry folks no special features to see here.
The film overall was OK, it is a half decently written coming of age tale geared towards the pre-teen set.
