Sean Astin in Rudy

3 of 9
Rudy is a classic tale of overcoming the odds. Cliché? Maybe. That doesn't mean we don't cry when the Notre Dame players and football fans start chanting "Ru-dy! Ru-dy!" And when the teammates throw their jerseys on the new coach's desk, demanding Rudy see playing time? It's the stuff of dreams! These feel-good moments are pretty much why we agree to see football movies in the first place.
