A fun John Candy classic!

Saw this again playing on cable and it brought back the same laughs and entertainment when I first saw it back in '93. Great fun throwback seeing the legendary JC at his best.

An alternative Cinderella story

"Cool Runnings" is a perfectly enjoyable movie from the Mouse, until that ending; which hits me squarely in the chest. But I'll get to that in a second.

This is sports movie bursting with pluck; you couldn't ask for more of an underdog than Jamaica for a bobsled team. Trivia has it that the studio was looking for high-priced talent to headline this movie (Eddie Murphy, Denzel), but lesser-knowns was absolutely the way to go. the team's got chemistry and they personify the unyielding optimism this story needs. And John Candy brings his A-game in a dramatic role and really gives the movie ballast. There's honestly no better word for this than likable.

SPOILERS

Now to address the big finale. Back when this came out, I'd sat through, say, three-quarters of it on two occasions (I can't remember what prevented me from finishing the tape, but it wasn't for lack of interest). So, for years, it lingered in my brain as a spirited Disney sports movie. and when I finally got around to finishing it . . . *THAT*'s how it ends? It's just an overwhelming mixture of painful and heroic and that's what stays in my mind as an adult.

This belongs right up there with "Miracle". It's a great movie.

8/10

A True Classic!

One of those great movies that just gets better with each viewing. I remember watching it as a kid and loving it! Now that I have my own kids, they have a blast watching it too! I especially like how inspirational the message is. There are so many reasons why the team shouldn't be able to succeed, but they still manage to in their own special way.
