A great movie, although it added things that never really happened. and made Dan Devine the "no, never play him," bad guy that he really wasn't. But then, most movies based on real people do these things. It still told the two basic stories, about him overcoming dyslexia and graduating from a tough academic school, and, as a guy who did not stack up at all athletically at that level, getting in one play in one game. If you want to go further into his story, read his book "Rudy, my story," which finally got written a few years ago.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance.

"After high school, I'm gonna play football at Notre Dame." Everyone huddled around the TV laughed at Rudy Ruettiger when he made that statement, except for his friend Pete. And Rudy trudged on, living a life everyone else thought he should, and each day, he died a little more inside. Then Pete died, and Rudy tried to escape. "Chasing a stupid dream...causes nothing but you and everyone around you heartache," his dad said. "My whole life, people have been telling me what I could do and couldn't do. I've always listened to them, believed in what they said. I don't want to do that anymore," said Rudy. This is Rudy's point-of-no-return. This is where the story really takes off, and we (the viewers) are left trying to answer one question, "is this an example of a delusion or persistence of vision?" Whenever I feel like Sisyphus, I put on this movie, and I remember these lines, "In this life you don't have to prove nothing to nobody except yourself. And after what you've gone through, if you haven't done that by now...it ain't gonna never happen." Watch the movie.

You're 5 feet nothing. A hundred and nothing. And you've got hardly a speck of athletic ability. You hung in with the best college football team in the land for 2 years! And you're gonna walk out of here with a degree from Notre Dame. In this life you don't have to prove nothing to nobody except yourself. And after what you've gone through, if you haven't done that by now...it ain't gonna never happen. - Rudy (movie)
