    I just watched Varsity Blues tonight for the first time and enjoyed it very much, but I'm a little confused. I thought I remembered that there was some controversy about a scene in this film where the football players lay down on the street in front of moving cars. The scene was removed after about 2 weeks of theatrical showings because of fears that there would be copycats around the country playing this form of chicken.

    I checked "alternate versions" at IMDB and there is no mention of this. Was this the film that had this scene cut or is my memory faulty?

    That would be The Program.

    Aha! Thank you Greg!

    I really enjoy football movies; North Dallas Forty, Remember the Titans, Any Given Sunday, etc. Is the Program worth a look?

    I've never actually seen it. I just remember the controversy. [​IMG]
