Even if you don't like football or the Notre Dame Fighting Irish this heartwarming story of desire rivals such movies as "Miracle", "Remember The Titans", or "Hoosiers". It has however something that these films don't have, character and devotion, you can't help but love the story of this young man eager to prove all who said he couldn't do it wrong and succeed. It inspires all who watch to believe and never give up. I woke up one Sunday movie not knowing what this movie was, but decided to watch it anyway, it moved me and made me want to play football, even though I don't have that much a liking for the sport. "Rudy" is a story that proves that dreams can come true.
