The cheers in the audience at the end were genuine, which is testimony to the likability (although not necessarily the quality) of the film.

Directed with composure, but no great fervour, the film's conspicuously uninterested in American football, and much concerned with testing the limits and the resilience of the American dream.

The film is so uplifting, I felt like calling up Lou Holtz for brunch.

It's a moderately entertaining film, with a message and content appropriate for the whole family. What it lacks is focus.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

An inconsequential, if moving, contribution to the sports-movie genre.

Inspiring sports film about a real life underdog.

Astin's performance is so self-effacing, so focused and low-key, that we lose sight of the underdog formula and begin to focus on this dogged kid who won't quit. And the last big scene is an emotional powerhouse, just the way it's supposed to be.

Astin gives these familiar doings the charm they need, as he pushes towards a virtually impossible goal.

It's Ruettiger's persistence that his teammates and the film celebrate. For that, Rudy earns a rousing cheer.

For all its patness, the movie also has a gritty realism that is not found in many higher-priced versions of the same thing, and its happy ending is not the typical Hollywood leap into fantasy.
