I was thinking of renting if not buying it. Any thoughts positive or negative?

I thought Var - Blues was pretty good, but I am into that kind of movies.

It had some laughs, but also some plot.

I rented Varsity Blues not expecting very much, but it surprised me by being very watchable. I may even buy it at some point.

Recently watched this DVD again when my brother was in town and wanted to see it. It's a good teen football movie and although the disc lacks any extras it is 16X9 enhanced with a DD 5.1 soundtrack.

Highlights of varsity blues.

1. The Soundtrack.
2. The Whipped Cream Bikini
3. The erection naming in class
4. John Voight. Great Actor.
5. The Strip-club

Verdict.

Buy it. its a great movie.

First off, I'm thinking these must be all guys replying.

Well, I don't really remember it, but I'm pretty sure it was ok.

!!1!!!!!!!!!SPOILER WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I agree, the movie suprised me by being better than expected and very watchable. I disagree with the 'high points' of Jon Voight and Whipped Cream scene

Jon Voight was a little too over the top and his accent was way off.

Spoiler!!!
The Whipped Cream Bikini: OK, your a 17 year old boy, your hormones are ragin', the FINEST girl in school in naked in front of you wearing whipped cream asking you to lick it off, you've had a drink or two, her parents are away, you've got a toadie little girlfriend who you obviously don't really care about and have little in common with (plus you've already basically broken up), "No, I can't. I just wanna be your friend."

Yeah, right. If anyone knows a guy who this has happened to and he followed suit, please tell me. Just not very believable. (Well, maybe if your James Van der Beek)

ccoolidge - I watched this a while ago so I may be way off in my memory, but I think it was a combination of things that made him say no. He was still trying to work things out with his girlfriend, and he knew that the old QB used to date this girl and he was friend's with the old QB, and he knew that she was in a vulnerable position.

Or he's just a big chicken. One of the two.

I thought the movie was great, for the corny dialogue, and the character named Billy Bob. It's great if you are one to like those teenie-bopper movies like that (who doesn't?)

This movie was being shown every other night on tbs or something like that a week or so ago if I recall. Saw it a few times.. just to hear the previously mentioned dialogue, "I don't want your life" also the classic, "we have the chance to play like gods" haha. Now that's quality.

I ended up watching it on TV a few months ago because there was nothing else on. I was expecting some dumb teen movie, but it ended up actually being pretty damn good. I liked it a lot.

You've got to watch the "R" rated version. I can't imagine what was cut to show it on tv. You'll love it

A Great movie... lots of fun, great football, and as mentioned... Whipped Cream... Buy it... no extras, but nice transfer...

It was actually better than what it should have been. It's a definite rental IMO.
