Pretty good teen flick
on 11 February 2008
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.
