Inspirational underdog story that is as boring and predictable as it is famous. Didn't like it.

Young man from small working town proves to everyone he can become a Notre Dame football player. It's a typical sports movie about dreaming big and overcoming obstacles.

Emotionally resonating and sure to elicit tears in its uplifting third act, Rudy overcomes its sentimentality via a strong performance from Sean Astin as the titular character and its persistent sense of spirit.

More entertaining than the Michigan State annual beatdown of ND, many great themes explored most importantly chasing your dream. Check out Rudy's sack on youtube as called by Don Criqui. Sean Astin delivers a performance worthy of the Heisman.

The viewer is able to grasp onto a completely new idea- that through hard work and determination one can become awesome- and that is an idea that can be taken and used in the viewer's everyday life after watching. Rudy chases a dream that almost seems impossible to any young man that lacks the size, stature and the necessary athletic ability to perform such a task, and eventually leaves the audience with a sense of "anything is possible." This film gives a fantastic example of the "underdog" idea, showing that through heart and determination one can reach the goal once set.

One of the finer sports movies ever made, Rudy is carried by Astin's sincere portrayal of the title character. You never stop rooting for Rudy throughout the film, and that makes it a classic.

A basic film, designed to be inspirational and uplifting, and well... you can't say it doesn't succeed at just that. You mostly know how the general story line will pan out, but there are a few pleasant surprises throughout. It will make you feel good, and makes Rudy a character to like and relate to, and it is truly astonishing to see how determined an underdog can be. It also manages to throw in some great performances and excellent direction. This is a movie to make you feel good, to pull on the heartstrings and just give you a reminder that dreams aren't always too hard to fulfill.

I liked it. The kid was a bulldog. Never gave up.

Strikes inspiration into those who dream big. That they should reach for the stars no matter what people tell them. If Rudy can live his dream, other people can as well.

A feel good story of a David and Goliath. Based on a true story of a boy who just wanted a chance to play for the Notre Dame football team, and the struggles and hard work leading up to the feel good ending.

Based on a true story, it is definitely that of a tearjerker, leaving you feeling as if you can accomplish anything. A feel-good film that you will always want to watch if you need a pick-me-up. Also has possibly some of the greatest movie music of all time; highly underrated.

Rudy is a baseball flick that does not give you anything interesting and just gives you a plot about a guy who wants to play baseball in and for a different place. It is very boring, and is not for kids. Not because it's inappropriate (there is some language) but because it is dull and kids won't find it interesting.

Sean Astin plays a great role in Rudy. Well acted, without a strong cast Rudy still succeeds. The story is believable and amusing. Rudy is a great sports flick that is inspires many.

Cheesy and predictable, the movie was still captivating and made you root for the main character.
