Plot: Rudy has always been told that he was too small to play college football. But he is determined to overcome the odds and fulfill his dream of playing for Notre Dame. Runtime: 114 mins Release Date: 22 Oct 1993
This movie was dubbed a football version of "Rocky" except for one exception --it is an actual true story!! If you can watch "Rudy" and not have a lump in your throat during several scenes, especially the ending, then you are a hard to please critic!! This movie deserved much better than the 7.1 than the "critics" gave it. Sean Austin did a magnificent job playing overachieving Rudy and for those who ridiculed the fact that he only played a few seconds at the end of a lopsided game missed the whole point of the story. Rudy's dream was to play football at <more>
Notre Dame and earn everyone's respect including his doubting family . With his lack of talent for both academics and athletics, the mere fact that he was even admitted into Notre Dame after struggling so hard to get good grades at Holy Cross the Junior College Rudy went to in an attempt to prove himself worthy of Notre Dame since he had been out of High School for several years and made poor grades in High School. He overcame his learning problems that had held him back in High School and this was a monumental achievement in itself. The scene where he was finally admitted into Notre Dame on his final attempt he had been rejected 3 earlier times was uplifting indeed. Rudy overcame reading difficulties thru hard work much the same way he overcame his lack of size to make the Notre Dame's football team --thru a gut-busting, never quit attitude. His teammates were so impressed with his attitude that they forced the coach Dan Devine, a real jerk in the movie to dress him for the final game. The final scene where the entire stadium was hollering "Rudy, Rudy, Rudy" in an effort to get him into the game at the end was spine-tingling! Rudy busting thru the line to sack the quarterback at the end of the game and get carried off the field with the stadium going nuts chanting his name---Well, movies don't get any better than this. And all this really happened!! Amazing how one of the best stories ever told in movies involve an "average Joe" who achieved his dream thru hard work----a Horatio Alger story indeed--10 out of 10 definitely ---For some of you "critics" that rated it worse than a "7" --you should take a class in movie critic reviews --you definitely would flunk my class if you gave this one a worse score than that!!
Rudy is a story that pulls at every heart string and emotions you possibly could have. Why? Well it doesn't have to do with the actors, though they are all great. It doesn't have to do with the filming, it isn't what draws us in. It is one thing. The one major fact.The True Story. To watch and see how Rudy overcomes every obstacle he faces. To see how Rudy truly triumphs, even if it isn't the best possible success for someone, for Rudy it is everything.This movie is a story that teaches a lesson. It is about football, but it is about believing. Never giving up. Always giving <more>
it your all.Rudy is a movie that gives us something to believe in. Believe.
The Most Inspiring Movie Ever!!!! (by don_the_bomb)
RUDY is the greatest football movie of all time. Wait, did I say 'football movie'? I meant movie. Period. Between the gut-wrenching acting by Sean Astin, tear-jerking moments of the climax, the miraculous true story of a short man fighting to make his lifelong dreams come true, you'll be rooting for Rudy throughout the film. Rudy's dream is a selfless act of triumph that can do nothing but good for the entire human race. You can't help but ride right along with Rudy for the roller-coaster of emotions that ensues, leading up to the greatest moment of his life, a moment that <more>
will resonate in the very fiber of your being. This movie shows that dreams really can come true. If you put your mind and body to it, and if you have a big enough heart, you too can accomplish anything! After watching this movie, I was inspired to try just that much harder at everything I do, in hopes of one day becoming half the man that Rudy is. This movie is genuine, heart-felt emotion that will touch the inner depths of your soul. From the biggest person to the smallest, one and all will be reaching for the tissues after enjoying, nay, living, every moment of this film. Warning: don't watch the movie alone. You'll want the extra arms in the room for when you're hugging each other in celebration, and an extra voice erupting with cheers for the single greatest movie hero of all time: RUDY.
Classic tale.....'if you wish hard enough' (by Hammy-5)
Waited two years to see this film, because of being on this side of the pond. Was I disappointed after this long wait?No way. Fantastic story, very well told.Acting, from all concerned, is....well, real. These people are their characters. The look and feel of the movie date back to an earlier time. The film is never rushed and the story is allowed to unfold at its own pace.Did I have a tear in my eye at the end, too bloody right I did. If you don't then you are not human.First class.
good, very good (by jefonline)
You don't have to be a Notre Dame fan, or even a football fan to like this movie, although it certainly makes it more fun to watch. This one gave me a good look at the impact that this particular school has or had when it comes to football in the United States. It's kind of hard to believe that all this actually happened at South Bend way back in 1975. Does that mean that it never happened anywhere else at all in history? That's kind of off-topic here, but it was good to watch nonetheless. This movie shows you what can happen when you decide you want to do something bad enough <more>
and all the *fun stuff* you sometimes have to go through to get there. I though Sean Astin did a stellar job in the lead role, he was a little weird here and there, but I think one of the interesting points about this movie is that in South Bend and a lot of other US cities , football takes precedence over just about everything. I was also surprised to see Vince Vaughn's name in the credits as I definitely did not recognize him in the scrimmage scene. These players aren't professionals, even though some do make it that far, I thought Rudy did a good job shedding some light on how the sport of football rises to the top in terms on national pastimes in the nation. Also, it would have been cool to have actually been there to see the real Rudy make that sack and get carried off the field, but I'm not that old! The one thing I might have changed in this movie was to make the score within a TD or a FG vs. Georgia Tech and put Rudy in on 3rd or 4th down even if that isn't the way it actually happened . I recommend that anyone liking a good sports story take the time to watch this and if you happen to be a fan of the Fighting Irish then you march over to your local video store and dish out the $20 to bring it home and watch it over and over and over again!

Imagine a great painter - a master if you will. What if he or she only painted 3 or 4 works in their career but their work was adored by millions? Angelo Pizzo is like that. His first screenplay, Hoosiers, was widely acknowledged as the best sports movie ever made because, of course.. like Rudy, it's not about sports . It took years for Rudy to follow but it was worth the wait. Years after Rudy, Pizzo wrote The Game of Their Lives renamed to The Miracle Match . If you loved Rudy, make a point to see these other films. You will love them.This film is about the human heart -- it's <more>
about character, hope and dreaming. It has a lot of good lessons to teach us. All young athletes should view this film -- if I were a coach of any sport, I would show this film to my team. You will stand up and cheer.This might be the late Jerry Goldsmith's best original score, in my opinion..
This is a great film about going for your dreams and never giving up. No matter who tells you that you can't do it, no matter how unlikely the chances are, no matter what, make sure you go for your dreams and do everything that you can make them come true.Sean Astin delivers one of his best performances to date. He plays the character of Rudy Ruettiger perfectly! He was an excellent choice for the role and he deserves a great deal of credit for his work as does the true life Rudy . The rest of the cast was quite good as well; Jon Favreau, Ned Beatty, Lili Taylor, Charles Dutton, Robert <more>
Prosky, and Vince Vaughn in one of his first roles . All of the supporting cast was excellent.If you like inspirational movies, or just movies about football although there is much more to this movie than just football , then I highly recommend you see this film. I hope that you enjoy it. Thanks for reading,-Chris
Today's spoiled athletes should take notes (by Agent10)
One of my favorite football movies of all time, this film follows in the long tradition of great sports movies which can uplift the spirit through means other than winning the big game and getting the girl or some other typical Hollywood convention. The music, cinematography and acting was excellent in this film, especially considering the terrible film choices Sean Astin had before embarking on this movie. While this was really an homage to Notre Dame football, a person could really look at Rudy and see a little of themselves inside the relatively small man. Charles Dutton had one of the <more>
greatest speeches in the history of sports cinema, and he should have gained more notoriety for his performance in this film.
To be completely honest, I was actually impressed with this film. It is sweet, but there is an honesty and a strong sense of realism at the heart of this film, which to me, provides the base of its appeal. "Rudy", unlike the majority of films about athletes, paints a picture of the real everyman basically, the jock who isn't a jock and it does so in a way that is plausible from start to finish. Working hard, eating, breathing and sleeping the game does not mean that you will wind up the star quarterback. Rudy's struggles are genuine: his family is poor and has never sent <more>
anyone to college, his grades are sub-par largely the result of an undiagnosed learning disorder , he can't afford his junior college let alone Notre Dame and Rudy is, at best,only a moderate athlete. It is in the way that he overcomes these obstacles not to mention the beautiful performance by Sean Astin which provides the refreshing realism which is at core of this film. "Rudy" is what sports are really all about.
