Washington Post
This flick has modest ambitions, but it delivers the goods in a fresh manner. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Unfortunately, Voight is not in every scene, and, when he's absent, Varsity Blues has a tendency to flounder, descending into the realm of formulaic sports movie melodrama. Full Review
Joe Leydon
An unappetizing mix of raucously vulgar comedy and teen-angst melodrama. Full Review
John Anderson
Los Angeles Times
A trashy little movie about drinking, football and drinking, is also one of those films that pretends to moralize about the very behavior it milks for every giggle it can get. Full Review
John Petrakis
Chicago Tribune
If you are willing to overlook the occasional missed block, clumsy tackle or dropped pass, there is more than enough in Varsity Blues to keep you engrossed. Full Review
