An okay movie.

Funny, but Disney took many creative liberties with the story and allowed actors with bad Jamaican accents.

Oh my gosh, THIS is a funny movie! XD It's a Jamaican bobsled team! How many movies have they made about those?! Apart from the minor instances of cussing, I found this movie to be very enjoyable; definitely a new favorite! :D

An inspiring movie about the first Jamaican bobsled team, the movie stars the late and great Canadian John Candy as their unwilling coach. The movie is light-hearted, and great for any snowy day! The movie follows along their training in Jamaica, with no snow or professional equipment available to the barely official team.

Fun movie. Oddly, there seems to have been at least one other amateur at the Calgary olympics. See "Eddie the Eagle"

Funny & Inspiring! So many fabulous messages: respect yourself, be true to who you are, support your teammates and go for it!
And a tiny window into Jamaican culture; “cool runnings” in Jamaican creole means “peace be the journey.”

Funny, but also heartwarming and a lesson in perseverance and athletic mastery and second chance for Blitzer.
See this one, if you haven't already.

"Let me tell you something. Winning a gold medal is great. It's really something. But if you're not enough without it, you'll never be enough with it."

Coarse Language: quite hilarious but very open with the language, those with kids under 9 should watch this ALONE
