Several players from different backgrounds try to cope with the pressures of playing football at a major university. Each deals with the pressure differently, some turn to drinking, others to drugs, and some to studying.
An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling, and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
In small-town Texas, high school football is a religion. The head coach is deified, as long as the team is winning and 17-year-old schoolboys carry the hopes of an entire community onto the gridiron every Friday night. In his 35th year as head coach, Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight) is trying to lead his West Canaan Coyotes to their 23rd division title. When star quarterback Lance Harbor (Paul Walker) suffers an injury, the Coyotes are forced to regroup under the questionable leadership of John Moxon (James Van Der Beek), a second-string quarterback with a slightly irreverent approach to the game. "Varsity Blues" explores our obsession with sports and how teenage athletes respond to the extraordinary pressures places on them.Written by

In the scene where Darcy (Ali Larter) sports her whipped-cream-bikini, shaving cream was used. Whipped cream wouldn't stick right. See more »
When the Coyotes score in the final game to cut the lead to 17-14, the clock shoes 7:07, but earlier in the same drive it had already gone below 7 minutes. See more »

Out of all the MTV movies I've seen, "Varsity Blues" was definitely the best. It's cast did great acting and good portrayals of high school students and teachers. James Van Der Beek is just as good as the football jock as he is as movie buff Dawson on "Dawson's Creek". There is about an F word every 2 minutes and close up scenes of breasts, so this movie is not for kids. I'd say 14 and up. All out good teen movie. I would recommend it strongly.
