The inspirational follow-up to Hoosiers, Rudy arrives on DVD with a fine 1.85:1 widescreen anamorphic transfer. There are English soundtracks in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, as well as a Spanish Dolby Digital Stereo track. English, Spanish, French, Chinese, Korean, and Thai subtitles are accessible. Supplemental features include three exclusive featurettes, an isolated music score, bonus trailers, and talent files. Considering the real-life Rudy is now a motivational speaker, it is a bit surprising there is not more of him on this release; regardless, the DVD will please those who find strength in this heartwarming tale.

I know this movie has been out for many years and it's a "new classic" but it's taken until 2020 before I finally got around to watching it. Now I know what all the hype is about. Great feel good movie.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have watched this movie at least a dozen times and every time it keeps me enthralled to the very end. I know how the movie is going to end, but Sean Astin so vividly protrays Rudy you not only see his disappointments, you feel them. While he might be better known for the "Lord of the Rings", Astin absolutely shines in this movie. The supporting cast take to their parts like few movies I have seen. This is an absolute not miss for anyone. You don't have to be a sports fan as the sports aspect is secondary to Rudy's quest to be a part of the team. The movie will make you feel part of Rudy's life and celebrate his success.
Each time history changes the media type that we watch movies on, I upgrade this movie! VHS, then DVD, now I upgraded to BluRay (since the price was right).
It is a heartwarming sports story. I catch myself watching it every time I see it on cable, and often put in the video to avoid commercials.
It is a positive message of never stop trying. Set a goal, and do whatever it takes to accomplish it, and change people's lives for the better along the way!
Best of all, it is a TRUE STORY!
