  • You have a football player who isn't physically gifted and is trying to make the roster of a team that has some of the best players in the country (at least when this is supposed to be occuring)
  • I have to say Rudy is one of the most annoying people around and, after the second or third time seeing this movie, I think you'll be tempted to turn off the sound while watching it
  • It's an Ok movie, but there are definitely some limitations to it and, for that reason, I would only recommend it for someone who is a die-hard sports fan

      Synopsis: A young man decides to go to Notre Dame and spends three years on the team’s practice squad hoping he will eventually be allowed to dress for one of the games. What I like about this movie: This is a film that can be inspiring in a way.

      What I don’t like about this movie: I have to say Rudy is one of the most annoying people around and, after the second or third time seeing this movie, I think you’ll be tempted to turn off the sound while watching it: I know I was.

      Also, for a football movie, there really isn’t a whole lot of football;

      just some practices and the ocassional glimpse of a game.

      That part could be a bit disappointing for your average sports movie fan.

      My Final Opinion: It’s an Ok movie, but there are definitely some limitations to it and, for that reason, I would only recommend it for someone who is a die-hard sports fan.

      I do think the average person probably wouldn’t like it otherwise.
