Storyline Heading
Five seniors on a high school football team in a small Texas town approach the end of a near perfect season. With mounting pressure from their hard-driving coach and parents, who live vicariously through the boys' victories, the resolve and determination of the young athletes is put to the test as they seek to finish the season as heroes - their way.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Varsity Blues is a movie about high school students intended for high school students. Girls will probably swoon over "Dawson's Creek" star James Van Der Beek; guys will enjoy the football team bonding and partying. Older viewers will likely be bored by the predictable story of a cruel coach and overbearing parents causing difficulties for the teenagers in the story; it's yet another film where only those under 18 are wise. Though it contains a few insights into its West Texas setting, its target audience is unlikely to care about anything but the attractiveness of the stars.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
The unique cultural phenomenon of West Texas high school football could be the stuff of a great American movie...or it could be the stuff of VARSITY BLUES. This story of a high school team struggling with the expectations of parents and coaches is standard teen soap opera stuff, with "Dawson's Creek" poster boy James Van Der Beek guaranteeing a high swoon factor. The setting, however, is largely wasted, with only token attempts to examine the effect on teenagers when an entire town is watching you. Ultimately VARSITY BLUES simply comes down to who will win the Big Game...a pretty ironic development, if you think about it.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In his 35th year as head coach, Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight) is trying to lead his West Canaan Coyotes to their 23rd division title. Uncompromising and omnipotent, Kilmer is deified in the small Texas town, as long as the team is winning.

But when star quarterback Lance Harbor (Paul Walker) suffers a season-ending injury, the Coyotes are forced to regroup under the questionable leadership of second-string quarterback Jonathan Moxon (James Van Der Beek). His irreverent attitude and approach to football come into direct conflict with the coach's inflexible game plan.
