Jonathon “The Mox” Moxon is finishing up his senior year and is a quaterback on the football team. However there is only one problem, he is second-string meaning he will only play if the real quaterback is injured. And guess what? Of course the regular one does get hurt and The Mox finally gets to show off his stuff and lead his team to victory. The only thing standing in Mox’s way is Coach Kilmer who is one of the seemingly toughest coaches anywhere. The only thing the coach cares about is winning at any cost (even injury to his players as we see in the movie).
The movie does have some good moments. Most are comical. The movie is mixed with a great rock / alternative soundtrack (again, tailored to the MTV crowd). The movie deals with some serious issues like fame, drugs, alcohol, crime, etc. but is enjoyable, however, most of the characters were not developed enough.
The video presentation was incredible. It is presented in 1.85:1 widescreen format and is 16x9 enhanced. The image is clear with no signs of any compression problems. Color, sharpness and black levels all seem dead on. Though not the absolute best transfers to date for DVD, it is very good.
Audio of course is presented in DD 5.1 and does a great job. Surrounds and the sub will have a good workout in some of the football playing scenes.
The movie is rated R and runs 104 minutes. Only extra is a trailer.
