Description

When people think of inspirational '90s football movies, one sticks out like a very short thumb. That's why inaugural Shat on Fantasy Football League winner Stephen "Happy Harry" Jenkins decided to commission the 1993 Sean Astin hit "Rudy."

Have the years made us too cynical to appreciate the story of an underdog whose greatest achievement was simply getting on the field, or can the Jerry Goldsmith score and a few outstanding performances still tug at our heartstrings? 

Gene questions the casting of a creepy Jon Favreau and the decision to fast forward through Rudy's Vietnam years. Ash reveals how to decode the movie using hairstyles, and guest host Kevin Brackett points out the parallels with 1994's "Forrest Gump."

The Shat Crew also discusses Astin's Samwise typecast, explosive foreshadowing, the misery of Notre Dame, and how close this sweet drama is to being a terrifying stalker film.
