Hillarious and Inspirational
Everytime I watch Cool Runnings, I still feel the magic and excitement of the first time I watched it. This movie is exceptional. Everything about it works.The acting is powerful, the story is both exciting and moving, the comedy is fresh and enjoyable, and the soundtrack is perfectly suited to support the mood of the movie.Cool Runnings is a perfect family film. People of all ages will be drawn to it and enjoy cheering for the Jamaican Bobsled team. There is some mild use of profanity, but it can be overlooked in favor of the moving story, and the morals that children will pick up along with it. Cool Runnings shows the value of pride, tolerance, and persistance.Throughout the course of the movie we see the team prove to the world through their persistance that they are just as good as any other team, regardless of where they come from. They learn to become a team, learn to take pride in their culture, and do a lot of self discovery.This movie is one of the few that is sure to touch you and to uplift your spirit.

Funny, heartwarming…truly one of my all time favorite films…
By Damian Gunn
`Cool Runnings’ is one of those movies I can watch over and over again and never get sick of it. Based on a true story that is both touching and inspirational, Jon Turteltaub does a magnificent job of infusing enough humor and wit into this script to make it one of the most entertaining movies I’ve ever seen. The story is about a young group of Jamaicans who are vying for a way to the Olympics. Derice Bannock (Leon) has dreamed of running in the Olympics all his life. His father was a famous Olympic runner and he dreamed of doing the same. Junior Bevil (Lewis) lives under the strict watch of his wealthy father who humors Junior’s fantasy about running in the Olympics but doesn’t wholeheartedly support it. And then we have Yul Brenner (Yoba) who lacks a good education but makes up for that with brute strength and arrogance. On the day of the tryouts Junior takes a fall and trips up Yul and Derice ending all of their chances to make it to the Olympics.That is until they meet Irving Blitzer (Candy), an ex-bobsledder who knew Derice’s father when they were in the Olympics together. Irving had always believed that runners would make the best Bobsled team and now he had the opportunity to try that out. With the help of Sanka Coffie (Doug E. Doug) they form the first Jamaican Bobsled team and head off to Canada to compete.They are met with serious scrutiny, not only because they are Jamaican but also because their coach, Irv, is hated among the Olympic community. Irving was disqualified back in his Olympic days for hiding weights in the front of a sled to make it go faster, thus disqualifying, and humiliating his country, his teammates and his coach. Thus, they don’t like him very much and because of that the Jamaicans have to work extra hard to make an impression. The film has plenty of funny scenes but it also has plenty of heart and by the end of the movie you’ll be wiping away the tears and pushing through with a smile. They don’t make many movies like this one, so when they do we need to grab them and never let go. `Cool Runnings’ is definitely a one of a kind film, a film that’s entertaining and suitable for the whole family, and one that any DVD library would be incomplete without!

Fun Caribbean type movie
By Esperanza Reynolds
A Jamaican man has the dream to make it to the Olympics, and while he is the fastest runner in the Island nation, he is tripped and unable to win.He finds out that there is another opportunity, and that is for a bobsled team, something Jamaica has never attempted because… who would ever dream of a team from a Caribbean Island that competes against the best of the best… they don’t even know about snow!!!John Candy is a retired Olympic gold medal winner and he lives in Kingston. The team enlists his services and soon we find ourselves witnessing a rather funny story of a group of athletes going to compete in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where cold is something beyond every conceivable idea of this group of four great athletes.Simply, don’t’ miss this fun Caribbean story of the struggle to achieve greatness.
