Cool Runnings 
Disney movie loosely based on a real story
3/4 stars

With out John Candy this movie wouldn't have done nearly as well. John Candy did a fantastic job portraying the Team's coach, Irv Blitzer, who had won a Gold Medal in Bobsled at the Sapporo Winter Games in '72, but was disqualified for making illegal modifications to his sled. Leon, Malik Yoba and Doug E. Doug all did great work in this film. The part I liked was the ending after the crash where the team picked up their sled and walked across the finish line. This movie showed what the spirit of the Olympics is really all about. While a lot of this movie is touched up to make for a funnier story line the end results are based on the true story.
All in all this movie is fun, and it is one that I would recommend to anyone that wants to see some classic John Candy.
