Cool Runnings Reviews
A Jamaican sprinter is disappointed he didn't qualify for the Olympics. He talks to a political official and hears a tale of an old proposal for Jamaica to have a bobsled team. The sprinter thinks he knows just the guys to form a team and he tracks down the man who proposed the idea to begin with. The coach and teammates will have to overcome a host of obstacles if they hope to become Olympians.

Jon Turteltaub, director of The Kid, 3 Ninjas, National Treasure, Phenomenon, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, and Last Vegas, delivers Cool Runnings. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward but fun to watch unfold. The settings and characters are entertaining and the cast delivers solid performances.

I came across this not too long ago on Showtime Anytime and decided to watch it again for the first time in a long time. This is definitely entertaining and worth a viewing but falls short of being a classic. There are some good lessons in here and some triumphant moments that make this worthwhile.
