Overview
You'll love Cool Runnings – 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 – Uncle Buck), four Jamaicans leave their sunny tropical island home and enter the chilly Winter Olympics to compete for the gold in a sport they know nothing about – bobsled racing!

Finding the courage in each other to give it their all, they meet the challenge, and soon become heroes – taking the whole world along for the ride! You'll be cheering long and loud for this unlikely team in this feel-good comedy hit!
