Absolutely one of the best games of all time! THE best sports movie of all time. NO movie makes me cry more than RUDY! Seriously, I am a grown man and I have no problem admitting that this movie makes me just weep. So good.
Rudy, played by Sean Astin (Goonies & Lord of the Rings), is the story of die hard Notre Dame football fan whose life long dream is to play for the Irish. The True Story. But there are some factors that are preventing our Hero from playing for his dream true. His father doesn’t believe in him, his girlfriend doesn’t believe in him, he has no real football skill other than being a tackle dummy, his grades are horrible and he has limited funds. The only person that does believe in him is his best friend Pete. Then when Pete dies in a horrific accident that is when Rudy decides to follow his dreams a good 4 yrs past high school.
Rudy goes to Notre Dame. Well first he has to take two years at Holy Cross College. Then he finally gets into Notre Dame. He makes it as a walk on player on the team. He is there with the team, he is at practice but he never makes it onto the team. Finally in the last game of his senior year, on the last play Rudy gets in the game. The stadium is chanting RUDY! RUDY! RUDY! Man what an ending! And one of my Top Ten Favorite Movies of all time!
Final Verdict: YES! YES! Own it.
