“Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!” Not many films can be summarized by their own lines, but who can’t help and root for Rudy with the Fighting Irish faithful?  Before he was avenging his old gaffer, Sean Astin tried out for the University of Notre Dame in the 70s. Pre-Swingers Jon Favreau also appears as Rudy’s buddy.  Never a comedic film, Rudy avoids becoming too heavy by instead choosing the innocent, inspirational route of underdog working toward and realizing his dream.  Rudy isn’t about sex or partying, but sports and the little guy are a big part of college, too.
