Varsity Blues

Lists: HPR Movie Of The Day, Drama

Brief Synopsis: "In small-town Texas, high school football is a religion, 17-year-old schoolboys carry the hopes of an entire community onto the gridiron every Friday night. When star quarterback Lance Harbor suffers an injury, the Coyotes are forced to regroup under the questionable leadership of John Moxon, a second-string quarterback with a slightly irreverent approach to the game."

Bryan Lienesch57 - The direction and production value is decidedly second-string, but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun with 'Varsity Blues' in its own naive, immature way.
