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

John Whitmer (the athletic trainer) was one of the actual Notre Dame football athletic trainers. Likewise, the scene with him is shot in the actual training room in the Joyce Center at Notre Dame. 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 »

If this movie doesn't get you motivated, then something is wrong with you. This movie proves that good things happen to people who work hard and don't except the circumstances they are dealt. I've seen this movie more than 30 times in my life, and i still cant get through the end of this movie without getting tears in my eyes. Another thing this movie teaches you is to listen to the people in your life who believe in you and want you to succeed, don't listen to the people who want you to fail and constantly remind you that your going to fail. "The best revenge is success." One of my favorite quotes comes from this movie as well, when the coach dan devine tells rudy and the rest of the team that "Nobody, and i mean nobody, comes into our house and pushes us around."
