I find myself watching and re-watching the opening scene of this film, where Nolte storms into the locker room, wreaking havoc on the water cooler (and whatever else happens to be within arm's reach). It's a great beginning to a very good motion picture.
The DVD edition of "Blue Chips" was released by Paramount in March of 2005, and became a welcome addition to my collection of movie discs. The DVD offers up a beautiful-looking Widescreen (1.85:1 anamorphic) version of the movie. Colors are brilliant. No bonus features are offered on the disc however. Not even the Theatrical Trailer, which would have been kind of nice to have.
The 1997 VHS video edition of "Blue Chips" is not really too bad either, although it's not in the preferred Widescreen mode. But the VHS does offer a robust 2.0 Dolby Surround track.
If you collect sports movies, you should probably get yourself a video or DVD copy of 1994's "Blue Chips" for sure. It's worth the price for that opening water cooler-destroying scene and Coach Bell's later basketball-kicking tirade all by themselves. ;)

I taped this movie from cable many years ago and I can tell you that even today the film resonates with me. The movie has so many cameos that I can't name them all. I will say this, however, each and every one of the cast has an integral part in moving the story along. Penny Hardaway's innocence and Ricky's greed and Boudreaux's confidence--each had a pivotal part to play in the film. Like The Program of 1993, this film had remarkable poignancy.
College athletics becomes corrupted by big time sports. For all those who say that college athletics are "more pure" than the pros this film should open your eyes as to what goes on under and sometimes over the table.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and I recommend it to anyone who likes a sports movie. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.
