Best sports movie ever. Own it and watch it every year. The odds of getting in the U of ND are extremely remote and, seemingly, even more impossible for Rudy & his limited credentials. But Rudy doesn't listen to the naysayers and doggedly pursues his singular ambition of playing for Notre Dame. A true testament to the American Dream and what makes this country unique. Hope we can hang onto the dream that anything is uniquely possible in America if you're determined to achieve the seemingly impossible. Stop listening to the people who you're a societal victim and reach down deep inside and go for it! That's what Rudy did. You have to want it. No one is going to hand it to you. Least of all government.

Rudy is a classic feel good story of inspiration and never giving up on your dreams, no matter what anyone else says. Sean Astin is perfect.

Greatest movie of all time. Acting is splendid and Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau start their amazing careers here.

Rudy is a film that should inspire all to work as hard as you can when you come up with a goal. The film was well constructed even though it was predictable. I don't know, I just didn't care for the character as much as I should have...he seemed a bit annoying to me

Like most sports movies, it's fairly predictable, but an enthusiastic performance by Sean Astin, and a downright inspirational story make this one of the best football movies of all-time.

It is a classic movie and a true story. It show how he wouldn't give up on his dream if all his family, friends,and girlfriend give up on him.

Hate football but half the movie wasn't even true like the scene where the football players put their jerseys on the coaches table and that was not true this movie is horrible on so many levels

This movie is the very definition of warm and fuzzy. It is the quintessential underdog story. Loved it. RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!

Schmaltzy sentimental real life story blah blah. Sound terrible? It isn't.

While it huffed and puffed trying to reach the cinematic heights of Anspaugh's earlier film Hoosiers, it's still a heartwarming, albeit schmaltzy, sport film with Ned Beatty on his games as usual.

Fairly corny, but still an effective and uplifting story about not giving up and following your dreams through. Don't let anyone tell you you can't do something.

Best sports movie of all time!!!

A charming little sports picture about a young man determined to play for the Notre Dame University Football Team no matter the cost & despite his stature.

Sam Austin is terrific as Rudy with that baby face & sensitivity needed for the role.

I found it a little flat & uninspiring but I could see that how it would appeal to most audiences. Rather sentimental but overall entertaining.

A moving movie that is ruined by the knowledge that it's simply not a true story... but redeemed by Goldsmith's score, which crystalizes wonderfully in the final game.

Definitivamente la mejor película de futbol americano por excelencia que he visto en mi vida, una gran historia, excelentemente llevada, no te aburres en ninguna parte de la película, escenas de mucha pasión y completamente conmovedora y apasionante
