James Van Der Beek (Dawson's Creek) leads the action in this exciting, funny coming-of-age story about a small-town high schooler confronting the pressures and temptations of gridiron glory. At first, backup quarterback Jonathan "Mox" Moxom (Van Der Beek) is nowhere close to being a football star. He's perfectly content to stay on the bench and out of the win-at-all-cost strategies of coach Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight in a powerful performance). But when the starting quarterback is injured, Mox is in the game… and in direct conflict with his hotheaded coach and girlfriend. Soon everyone in Mox's football-crazed community will realize there's not just a new star quarterback in town, there's a new kind of hero.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A paint-by-numbers story that offers no surprises and a hero and villain etched in white and black with few shades of gray.
Fresh: Slickly enjoyable!
Rotten: An unappetizing mix of raucously vulgar comedy and teen-angst melodrama.
Rotten: Tired, corn-fed storyline and generic, plug-and-play direction!
