Varsity Blues eventually fizzles out badly!
...Crisply directed....VARSITY BLUES is quite well acted...
New York Times
Varsity Blues uses all the trappings of the typical football movie-a tragic injury, a goofy linebacker, and a Big Final Game-but does so with a sly and surprisingly biting attitude towards our national sport. Full Review
...Flashy gridiron showdowns....A pungent portrait of a small-town community in the grip of an obsession... -- Rating: B
Rating: 2/4 -- Scenes work, but they don't pile up and build momentum. Full Review
...An engaging rites-of-passage tale that dares to suggest winning isn't everything...
Jon "Mox" Moxon (James Van Der Beek, TV's DAWSON'S CREEK) is the second string quarterback of the Coyotes of West Canaan, Texas. When the star quarterback (Paul Walker) suffers a knee injury just as the team is about to win their 23rd championship in 30 years, Mox is in the hot seat. Mox, however, is more interested in getting accepted to Brown, a view which is at odds with that of the pigskin-crazy town as well as that of militaristic Coach Kilmer (Jon Voight). But when Mox becomes a town hero for his football prowess, will his sights be swayed from his academic pursuits' This surprise hit from MTV Pictures was directed by Brian Robbins (HARDBALL).
