    Product Details

    Description

    Based on a true story, this is the comedic saga of four Jamaican athletes going to extremes to compete as bobsled racers at the Winter Olympics. With few resources and virtually no clue about winter sports, it's an uphill course for this troupe from the tropics who are sliding on thin ice as they go for the gold in Calgary, Canada.
    Refusing to let anything stand in their way, these four Jamaicans enlist the help of a down and out ex-champion American slider named Irv. Unavoidably drawn back to a sport he had come to loathe, Irv is faced with coaching a team of complete novices. But once committed, he is determined to turn them around and to somehow right the wrongs of his own failed career. It's a bumpy ride but with pride, determination, and dignity, the bobsledders make their impossible dreams come true.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Classic Comedy for the family This is a very funny classic of 3 Jamaican sprinters robbed of a chance of competing in the 100m at the olympics (& a friend) trying to compete with the worlds best bob sledders at the winter games. Everything is against them - the drastic difference in weather conditions, the attitudes of other nations, prejudice of the governing body....oh & the fact they havent got a clue what a "bobsled" is. John Candy puts in a good performance but its the farcical antics of the team practicing & going to the winter games that make this. Very safe family film (no bad language etc) & a must see classic. Whilst this is based on a true story it is only very loosely based. In reality there was no prejudice & no record winning start/run so whilst the film tugs at your heart strings in places it's all for effect - sit back & enjoy 21 August 2012
