Irving Blitzer disgraced himself when putting extra weights into his team’s bob in the Olympics, resulting in his gold medal being taken away from him. Years later, Derice Bannock, son to a former friend of Irv, fails to qualify for the 100-yard sprint for the Olympics due to a stupid accident. But when he hears of Irving Blitzer living also on Jamaica, Derice decides to go to the Games anyway, if not as a sprinter, then as a bobsledder. After some starting problems, the first Jamaican bobsledding team is formed and heads for Calgary. In the freezing weather Derice, Sanka, Junior and Yul are only laughed at, since nobody can take a Jamaican bobsledding team led by a disgraced trainer seriously. But team spirit and a healthy self confidence may lead to a few surprises in the upcoming Winter Games.

Film Review

"No people say, you know they can't believe, Jamaica, we have a bobsled team." This chant describes this movie, the funnest movie ever made! From the first minute, to the heart pounding finish, I did not stop laughing. This movie is loosely based in the Jamican bobsled team at the 1988 winter Olympics. It is a true story, just slightly modified, to make room for more comedy. The plot is easy to follow. I could not stop watching because I had to know how it ended. The acting in this movie was incredible. With only one big name actor, John Candy, you would never know that none of the actors never made it big time. Doug E. Doug was the only other actor that ever made it somewhere. He later stared in the T.V. show 'Cosby' ( not to be mistaken with 'The Cosby Show') and voiced Bernie in 'Shark Tale'. The bobsledding scenes were really well done. The camera work was great and the transitions from a movie camera, what would be shown on a TV screen and th…

This film leaves me breathless. It is like a prescription tonic for the credit crunch. John Candy is wonderful. The bob-sleigh team is a true Ambassador for Jamaica. You add in the nasty Germans, the resentful Americans and the whole amateur sports is controlled by professionals nonsense. It all works. I know some very cynical Capitalists who expressed themselves above such candy floss trivia and yet whooped for Jamaica by the last run :-)This is my favourite feel-good film of the 90's. If you have seen it already – do yourself a favour and watch it again. Everyone needs some buttons to help them through bad economic times and I've yet to find better.Cool Runnings Rules!

This is one of the better sports movies I've seen. There were comedic elements as well as a solid plot. The storyline follows the members of the '88 Jamaican bobsled team as they journey to overcome the prejudices of "more qualified" teams at the Olympic games. They have to deal with those people who don't believe they have what it takes because they're "different". They also have to deal with the fact that their coach is looked at as a cheater because of a stunt that he pulled 16 years previous. Throughout the movie the characters are faced with all kinds of challenges, and in the end they manage to pull together as a team and rise above it to beat all the obstacles in their paths.
