Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 02/04/1999
"...[Van Der Beek] is solidly appealing..."
Total Film - 03/01/2000
"...An engaging rites-of-passage tale that dares to suggest winning isn't everything..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/05/1999
"...Flashy gridiron showdowns....A pungent portrait of a small-town community in the grip of an obsession..." -- Rating: B
New York Times - 01/15/1999
"...Crisply directed....VARSITY BLUES is quite well acted..."
Box Office - 03/01/1999
"...Voight shines..."
USA Today - 01/15/1999
"...VARSITY BLUES displays a good feel for the rituals and almost religious devotion that football can command in Texas....And the football scenes are well staged..."

Product Description:

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).
