When people say dreams don’t come true, tell them about Rudy
Ever since he was a little boy, Rudy Ruettiger has dreamed of attending Notre Dame University and playing on the Fighting Irish football team. But Rudy’s dream doesn’t seem very practical as his grades are not especially impressive, and standing a shade over five feet tall and weighing a little over 100 pounds, Rudy is hardly built for the gridiron. However, this young man learns to let nothing stop him from realizing his ambitions in this heartwarming true story.
MPAA: Rated PG for mild language.
