The outrageously funny comedy hit inspired by the true story of Jamaica's first Olympic bobsled team. They were four unlikely athletes with one impossible dream. Now, with the help of an ex-champion as their coach (John Candy), Derice, Sanka, Junior and Yul leave their sunny island home and enter the chilly winter Olympics to compete for the gold in a sport they know nothing about - bobsled racing!

 A Classic from when I was Young!

| | See all Steve0204's reviews (23)

When I was little my mother used to put this on for me ALL THE TIME. Of course, me being little, I had no idea what it was about. Just bob sledding and Jamaicans. As I got older I carried on watching it and got hooked for a few years just watching the same film over and over again.

Now, if I watch it I still become hooked and the jokes are hilarious. John Candy and Doug E. Doug (Sanka) have to be my 2 favourite characters in it. Just because they are so funny.

A group of Jamaicans set off to become Jamaica's first bob sled team. They go through the high and lows and manage to get through to the finals. Based on a true story I believe.

***** (5) stars!

A brilliant comedy that will have you laughing and caring about Jamaican bobsledding. A family classic that inspires and above all entertains with unbeatable accents,and the hilarious (and stupid) Sanka. The price here is a bargain whichever way you look at it, give this film a chance.

 You know some people can't believe!

JAMAICA we have a bobsled team!!

I *LOVE* this film!! Every Christmas I looked forward to watching it, until I have finally decided to buy the DVD and watch it all year long!!

I love it, and as has already been said, I too get bored with films. This isn't too long, isn't too short. Really holds my attention. Makes me cry but mostly makes me giggle!



 A fantastic film with lots of laughs
