When you think about it, every team has a Rudy type player. What made him so special out of all of them to get a movie? Why not a movie about the Beer Man or the former Marine now playing for the Dallas Mavericks?

This. Learning the true story really ruined it for me. Plus the whole propped up mystique of Notre Dame and their self-imposed never ending superiority based on nothing more than a myth has led me to harbor an unhealthy and irrational dislike for the school and the movie.
