Rudy grew up in a steel mill town where most people ended up working, but wanted to play football at Notre Dame instead. There were only a couple of problems. His grades were a little low, his athletic skills were poor, and he was only half the size of the other players. But he had the drive and the spirit of 5 people and has set his sights upon joining the team. Written by

The crowd scenes during Rudy's final game were filmed during halftime at a real game between Notre Dame and Boston College during 1992. You can tell by the colors that the Boston College fans wear. See more
In one practice scene, a Notre Dame player is shown wearing a football helmet with the "AIR" logo on front. Schutt Sports did not market the "AIR" model helmet until 1987, more than a decade after this movie was supposed to have taken place. See more
Coach I just wanted to thank you for letting be a part of this football program this year.
Rudy, I never I thought I'd be saying this but it's been an honor.
But I've come to realize that God made some people out to be football players and that I'm not one of them.
I wish God would put your heart in some of my players bodies.
Yea, I have this wish to let my father watch one of his sons play football for the Irish and I was wondering if I could possibly dress for one game next season?
This is one of the few films in which the infamous "Alan Smithee" is given directorial credit for ONLY the commercial TV version. If viewed on VHS, DVD, pay cable etc... David Anspaugh is given his proper credit as director in the opening credits. However the editing for extra commercials on the free TV version is done so heavily -which alters the context- that Mr Smithee is the "director" when this film is shown there. See more
