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
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).
