No one has posted a user review yet.



A paint-by-numbers story that offers no surprises and a hero and villain etched in white and black with few shades of gray.

We are aware going in that Varsity Blues' cannot be a landmark of world cinema. Yet working within the tired formula, the picture turns out to be not so bad.

Originally, somebody may have wanted the film to be a serious exploration of the dark side of high school sports, but it ended up as just one more sports picture.
