Worth the money and then some.
A must have!

A bunch of sprinters failing to qualify for the olympics decides to assemble a bobsleigh team.
Easy movie for light entertainment.

  A Classic from when I was Young!

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!

Cool Runnings is a genuinely funny and sometimes moving family film that everyone out there will enjoy. Made in 1993, it features one of the last great performances from the magnificent John Candy and has an unforgettably hysterical performance from Doug E Doug. Based on actual events which tooks place at the 1988 Winter Olympics, the film itlself comes highly recommended.

Now priced at £2.99 from Play.com including quick delivery, you can't really go wrong with this purchase. I certainly haven't looked back - to get such a timeless gem for under 3 quid is such a great offer you shouldn't turn your back on.


  Love it!

  A must watch

| | See all ScorpionWsM's reviews (224)

As soon as I saw this in the top 10 films, I wondered why, but for £2.99 I knew why.

I love tales of courage and sacrifice and this has the lot despite it being a comedy as well.

This is a FANTASTIC family movie, that in the end will move you and make you cheer them on.

I honestly would love to say about the part that actually put a tear in my eye, but I shan't, I shall let you enjoy this wonderful tale of the Jamacian bobsleigh team.

Watch it now.

It's a film that every 90's kid worth their salt should of, adore and watch every year!
And even if you aren't a kid, you should own it, cherrish it and respect the fact that there is no funnier, more enjoyable sports film ever made!

All sing with me:
"Some people say you know we can't believe..."
