Story about a college basketball coach who decides to lie and cheat his way to win games again after a losing season. Penny Hardaway and Shaq? Really? Ruined the movie casting those two. And then having him coach against Bobby Knight was just ridiculous.

One of the best sports movies of all time!

A cliche with heart, anchored to a rather timely issue brought to light which hasn't been resolved for over 20 years now.

I see what they were goon for but the execution was poor. With minor changes the movie would've been great but overall it's a decent movie to watch at least once.

Nolte is great and the players were pretty entertaining. Makes you wonder about what college sports programs.

3 out of 5. Needed a better ending.

Nick Nolte stars as a basketball college coach Pete Bell in Blue Chips. After his first losing season, he decides to grease the wheels some and acquire three hot new stars for his team. When the players and alumni he bonded with start asking questions and handouts he finds himself trapped and full of regret of what he had done for the game he loves. Blue Chips is a decent basketball movie that has good cameos and a typical performance by Nolte, but does not have the right elements and direction to really take off.

The most realistic portrayal of the recruiting world in the early 90s. Nolte's moral dilemma feels real and I bought it

I can't believe this pulp is a Friedkin movie.

A character asks if Shaquille O'Neal can rebound.
½ March 11, 2015
The screenplay is a cobbled-together mess of shallow stereotypes, disingenuous nobility, and spit-spewing Nolte "goddamnits." And worse yet, Friedkin directs the actual games -- a built-in escape from the Frankensteinian script -- with a clumsy callousness that betrays the essence and beauty of basketball. This movie is a train wreck.

Nick Nolte is fantastic in this controversial film based on true events. This film doesn't glorify the events that take place but is true. The added perk of having O'Neill makes this film enjoyable.

A complete editing mess.

This is a really good, basketball film. Lots of intense on the court scenes, the plot keeps the movie going and so do the actors. Nolte always plays the jerk well, so he was born for this role in my book.
