I used to absolutely love this movie as a child. I’m not even joking. I would watch this once or twice a week for a month and then take a break and do it again a few months later. I wanted, more than anything, to be Leonard (Sean Astin). When I first saw Rudy years later, I immediately recognized Sean. I’ve looked and looked for a DVD or VHS release of this, but there has never been one that I can find. If anyone out there has a decent copy, please let me know. Or, if you have the ear of any Disney execs, please beg them for a release.

Anyway, the entire thing is on YouTube, so if you’re interested, check it out here.
