Travelogue shots of happy Jamaicans dancing in the sun give way to patronising comedy.

Cool Runnings doesn't even rate a bronze medal as either sports film or comedy.

Cool Runnings is a charming tale of determined underdogs, with plenty of laughs, moments of real tension, and five engaging performances.

While the film is cute and charming, it isn't without its copious cliches. All in all, it's pretty much as expected.

A energia do elenco e a inspiradora premissa (baseada em fatos reais) convencem o espectador a ignorar os vários clichês e a torcer desesperadamente pelos bravos jamaicanos.
