“I don’t think I’ve ever not heard someone (who knows the movie) go “”aww”” when Rudy is mentioned. This is one of the most heartwarming sports films ever made. Hell, even without specifying sports films, it’s one of the most heart warming. It’s the ultimate story of an underdog overcoming the odds. Even Will McAvoy feels it.
Sean Astin sure has a knack for playing iconic underestimated characters. Mikey in The Goonies. Samwise in LOTR.
Okay maybe trying to play WOW while watching the movie was a bad idea. I was paying attention, but not enough to think of things to say. Whoops.”
