Cool Runnings

Disney's feel-good true-story about the first Jamaican bobsled team, competing at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Canada. Features a gamut of one-liners, a courageous spirit, John Candy awesomeness, and an appropriately heroic ending that pretty much invented the slow clap.

A cute, buoyant sports fantasy, jolted along by a reggae soundtrack and playfully acted by an appealing cast.
