Throughout the run of this film, I was surprised by how cool it was. A Jamaican Bobsled Team? No way, but this is based on a true story. The idea of course seems absurd but you really end up enjoying this and the fun characters. I was dying laughing when they were doing the cold weather training and I almost shed a tear as you see the team compete in the Olympics. John Candy was pretty funny as the has-been bobsled coach and the actors playing the Olympic team have some excellent chemistry together. This is just a fun, laid-back film, mon. You should check it out.
