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

During the Georgia Tech versus Notre Dame game, Rudy is the only one without a name on the back of his jersey so he can be easy to spot. See more »
When Rudy is signing up for the Booster Club, the camera goes back and forth between Rudy and D-Bob. There are characters talking behind D-Bob who finish a conversation and walk away. They continue to reappear and disappear in subsequent shots. See more »
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 »
National TV broadcasts omit the word "shit". See more »
I found the movie to be inspirational, a little cliched and always interesting. Sean Astin made me believe in the character he played and I also enjoyed Charles S. Dutton. You know how the movie will end, unless you were born yesterday, but its still satisfying and I wasn't ashamed to shed a tear....
