Fantastic Movie for the entire Family...one that will inspire you
This is a great movie, especailly for anyone that has a child that is in sports. The lesson it teaches and the message it delivers is one that will only help guide us all through life with deginity, respect and grace even at those moments when we are faced with challenges that are out of our control. It is also a really a great move for the entire family, which is so hard to find.

Very Good Movie
I have heard it said by students at the university where I am employed that RUDY is an "epic" tale. This is a vast overstatement from a generation who feel that Avatar and it's superficiality has greater worth than the classics. I wonder what is happening to our world. Actually we know... yet it still causes wonder. RUDY is a tale of hopes and determination. This type of literature (movie or print) is always of worth to a imploding society. It allows those who are not yet drowned in it to have something to cling to and possibly remain afloat. There is courage and a tenacity in the heart and actions of this young man that is becoming societally obsolete. Family life is accurately depicted as volatile and contemptuous with members who despise RUDY'S dreams due to the fact that their own lives echo nothing of improvement or ambition. RUDY'S unconquerable spirit and actions show them all that they aren't and it burns in them like a coal fire, breeding contempt and scorn for this brother who serves as a wonderful example for us all. More really about dreams than sports, this film will inspire and lift.Read full review

Rudy, A must see Movie!!!
Rudy is based on a true story about a young boy (played by Sean Astin) growing up in a blue-collar family with a dream to someday go to college and play football at Notre Dame. His family and teachers say he's not smart enough, not athletic enough, and why doesn't he accept his fate working in the local steel mill with his father and brothers. He refused to let his dream die and becomes a walk-on player.
The original movie came out in 1993. Sean Astin was in The Lord of the Rings. Ned Beatty portrays his father. David Anspaugh is the director.
Rudy is one of my all-time favorite movies. The acting is wonderful, especially Sean Astin's performance. The fact that it is a true story kept me watching from the beginning to the end. The music score is well written and inspirational.
I would recommend Rudy to anyone, young or old, who has a dream and needs the inspiration to pursue it.Read full review
