We're celebrating nerd prom with trailers for great nerd movies!
If you were going to do a list of the best slow claps in movie history, surely Lucas would be up there.
Looking back at Lucas is like looking back at a parade of shattered dreams. Corey Haim, Charlie Sheen, Jeremy Piven, Winona Ryder - these actors were going places! They had futures! But look at them now.
Thankfully the movie itself holds up. A bittersweet, softly funny movie about a very pleasant, likable nerd - the kind that existed before Kevin Smith and Asperger's turned the whole scene into a wasteland of anger and unhappiness - tries to win the girl by ill-advisedly joining the football team. Directed by the guy who wrote The Omen, Lucas is just the right kind of sappy, and it's a film all-but guaranteed to wring a tear or two out of you by the end.
