On seeing VB, i thought it'd just be another boring teen film... same plots, same characters. but i was very pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be in fact just a cool film... its hard to describe really. John Voight's performance was impressive to say the least... i've always found him to be a great actor, and this film's performance certainly didn't let him down. the plot line was strong as well - fun, deep - really got you into the film unlike many other movies. Although the ending may have been slightly predictable, it was the obvious choice to make, and left the viewer with a good feeling. i even felt a bit sorry for John Voight! The great story line and great directing, along with a amazing soundtrack (Foo Fighters and Greenday, to name just a couple), leads to this being an amazing film, i would recommend to almost anyone...

This film tells us the story of the troubles of teenage life and the demands but on us by adults. Dawsons Creeks James van der Beek stars with some new upcoming actors Amy Smart and Ali Larter(Whipped Cream). Jon Voight is good, there are some laughs on the way and a good soundtrack. Awesome!

I really enjoyed watching this film,even though i know very little about American Football. The films storyline focuses on a football teams last few games of the season with their new quarterback Jonathan Moxon,played by James Van Der Beek (of Dawson's Creek Fame). The film is full of the expected Amercian ideals of glory and community spirit.This film really lifts your spirits,definately one to buy.

I only bought this film because Paul Walker is in it and didn't expect much but really enjoyed the whole film. All of the cast are excellent, the story has good pace and doesn't drag at all. There are funny moments mixed with touching ones. A great film well worth watching.

This is not the best American football film that you'll ever see but it does have very funny moments. It gives a alternative veiw on the high school hero that is the star Quaterback. You get to see the zero to hero transformation of the long time replacement Qb and how he deals with it. The game action is good, you get too see the action from all sorts of positions. there are characters to love and some to hate, even if the end of the film is very predictable it is enjoyable.

This tells the story of the Coyotes, a small town Texan high school football team. For Moxon (Jason Van Der Beek), things are going slowly. He is the second choice quarter back who spends most games on the bench. However, following a freak injury to the star quarter back, Moxon finds himself replacing him, and perfoms well. After a series of stirring perfomances, Moxon begins to lose interest in football and focuses instead on university. However, the team coach wants his perfect season, and threatens Moxon that if he doesn't play the way he likes, he will sabotage his college transcripts. The coach also drugs players and forces them to play when injured.

The film is pretty good. Jon Voigt's perfomance as the demonic, ranting coach is the crowning glory of the film. Heroes' star Ali Later also shines as the scheming, vixen like cheerleading captain. Van Der Beek's performance however is a little sloppy, and his fake Texan accent is a little annoying. Other than that, the film is a good teen flick, and has a good soundtrack.

You have the right to say: one more high school varsity football film. And it has absolutely all the defects of these films: the kids are unthinkable non-thinking machines. At first at least. The coach is a brute that dopes his players or gives them unethical injections for them to play even when they should not. He is a gross character who treats his players as if they were in a marine training camp and he were a training sergeant as depicted by some films about the Vietnam war. Gross language, blackmailing, violence even are some of his skins on top of the illegal stuff and unethical actions.

But the film reveals two elements that are essential to understand this sport is not exactly and only that. First the fathers are shown as being pure idiots who want their children to play football for only two reasons: because they played football when they were going to that particular high school themselves. They are frankly undrinkable nostalgic-spirited bigots about football. And the second reason is that their sons can earn, or win, a full scholarship in college, alleviating the expense for the family. That transforms football into some kind of narrow-minded culture, not to speak of open institutionalized moral prostitution or slavery.

The teenagers are well obliged, willy-nilly for some, to play the game which means violence, superficial clichés and attitudes including racism against the only black on the team, sexism and hefty male-chauvinistic attitudes, some girls overplaying the game by becoming the prize of each game for the winner. Not to speak of alcohol and other inacceptable practices including public or semi-public sex, driving under the influence, drinking binges and challenges, and even some open and gross misdemeanor.
