Cool Runnings

This 1993 fish-out-of-water comedy is based on the first Jamaican bobsled team to make it to the Winter Olympics. Set in Calgary, Alberta, the freezing Jamaicans (Leon Robinson, Doug E. Doug, Rawle D. Lewis and Malik Yoba) discover that team spirit counts nearly as much as long johns -- and the boys wow the Canadian crowd (even if they don’t win the gold). The late John Candy shines as the disgraced Olympics coach who rallies the team and gets his game back.
