Rudy

Revealing mistake: Just before the start of the final game which is supposed to be in December we see several shots of the parking lot where it is snowing cold and obviously winter, but yet just before the game starts the camera shows a wide shot of the stadium where you can see rows and rows of lush green trees in the background.

Factual error: In at least two scenes, cars from the 1990's can be seen, despite the fact that the film took place two decades earlier. (00:50:00)

Trivia: The guy who played No. 75 (the one who starts chanting "Rudy") is the only actual Notre Dame football player in the movie. He is Peter Rausch, freshman class of 1987. Rausch was a highly recruited defensive lineman from Fort Meyers, Florida in 1987, but played very little due to injuries and health problems (cataract surgery, appendectomy). Rausch had already completed his eligibility, or his appearance in the movie would have been an NCAA violation.
