“The film has a freshness and an earnestness that gets us involved, and by the end of the film we accept Rudy’s dream as more than simply sports sentiment. It’s a small but powerful illustration of the human spirit.” – Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times
“A sweet-natured family drama in which years of effort are rewarded by a brief moment of glory.” – Richard Harrington, Washington Post
