Continuity mistake: When Rudy thanks his employer for the key and the blanket, each shot that faces Rudy you can see a large amount of snowflakes falling. However, whenever the shot faces his employer there is only an occasional snowflake that falls. (00:53:40)
Continuity mistake: When Notre Dame are huddling up on the field right before their final game, Coach Devine is giving his pep talk with his back facing Rudy. The very next shot, he's done a complete 180 and is now facing Rudy.
Continuity mistake: When the team captain comes in to talk to the coach about giving up his spot for Rudy so Rudy could dress, the coach has a clock/pen and pencil set at the front of his desk. However, when the captain and all the other players lay their jerseys on the desk, the pen and pencil set is gone. (01:33:30)
Continuity mistake: When Rudy opens one of his rejection letters, he checks his mailbox and heads to a cafe. This cafe is in a building on the actual Notre Dame campus, has no student mailboxes in it, and is not the Holy Cross College campus where his mailbox should be. (00:59:15)
Fortune: I rode the bench for two years. Thought I wasn't being played because of my color, I got filled up with a lotta attitude. So I quit. Still not a week goes by I don't regret it. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walking out, letting them get the best of ya. You hear me clear enough?
Trivia: One of the fans in the stands is actually Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger. He can be seen in the last few minutes of the film wearing a dark colored coat with a thick, light colored collar/lapel. Seconds after the actor playing Rudy runs onto the field near the end of the final game, you can see the real Rudy sitting directly behind the actress playing Rudy's mother. Then about 15 seconds after the game ending tackle, the actor playing Rudy's father turns around and grabs the real Rudy by the coat collar/lapel, then slaps his chest in joyful celebration.
