The football scenes are involving, the acting is up to snuff, and there is something about those last days of high school that remains a solid background for even the most familiar of stories.
...[Van Der Beek] is solidly appealing...
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...
...Flashy gridiron showdowns....A pungent portrait of a small-town community in the grip of an obsession... -- Rating: B
...Crisply directed....VARSITY BLUES is quite well acted...
New York Times
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).
