Cool Runnings

Who as a kid didn’t watch Cool Runnings? Loosely based on the true story of Jamaica entering a bobsled team in the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics despite, obviously, not having the most appropriate climate to prepare, it has to be one of the most rewatchable films of its type.

Sure, there are inaccuracies when comparing it to real events; the Jamaicans were welcomed rather than ridiculed, John Candy’s character is not based on any real person and the inspirational ending didn’t quite happen the same way as it did in the film, but who really cares? It’s a charming, feel good film with plenty of laughs.
