Overview

In his first feature following the success of television's Dawson's Creek, James Van Der Beek stars as Jonathan Moxon, the back-up quarterback on his high-school football team, the West Canaan Coyotes. In West Canaan, the only thing that matters is football, and the man who matters is the one with 22 divisional championships, coach Bud Kilmer Jon Voight. Mox, as the young "A" student is called, is wrapping up his senior year on his way to Brown University in the shadow of his childhood friend, star quarterback Lance Harbor Paul Walker. With only five games until the end of the season, Kilmer pushes his players too hard, and Lance suffers a career-ending injury, forcing Mox to play and win the game. Now the starter, Mox must deal with his newfound celebrity; the attentions of Lance's girlfriend, head-cheerleader Darcy Ali Larter; prevent his friends and fellow players Billy Bob Ron Lester and Tweeder Scott Caan from self-destructing; prevent Coach Kilmer from crushing everybody; and hold on to his own girlfriend, Lance's sister Jules Amy Smart. Oh, and Mox must also win the championship and prove himself the hero.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
A kind of '90s update of the Tom Cruise teen drama All the Right Moves, this bid to create a leading man status for television heartthrob James Van Der Beek is surprisingly enjoyable, even when you anticipate its every move. Set in a football-loving Texas town, the film scores in its depiction of a small town swallowed up by the allure of the "big game." The film makes an intriguing case for good-looking misanthropes who are wrenched into the mania of hometown sports, but ultimately it says nothing new about teenagers. Sandwiched in with some effective scenes are the requisite boozing, sex and raucous behavior typical of lesser teen comedies, which never elevates the film. This was one of the first productions from MTV Films, who had a sizable hit with this feature, released just after the new year, ordinarily a dumping ground for Z-grade features that studios fear.
