What is most puzzling about 'Eddie the Eagle' is its bizarre commitment to the formula.

Enthusiasm goes a long way in this sort of film and it would be very difficult not to get swept along in the avalanches of it you'll find here.

The film may triumph in that its modest goals are achieved but the struggle to tell a truly interesting story devoid of manipulation was too much for director Dexter Fletcher.

Few films are this delightful and positive - I challenge you not to get swept up in Eddie's story and root for him along the way.

Despite its flaws, Eddie the Eagle boasts a strong cast, good script and, like Eddie himself, a lot of heart. Watch it at least once. You won't regret it.

The film could so easily have made Eddie a figure of fun. Instead it turns an underdog into a very British kind of hero.

Much like the real Eddie Edwards, the film may not soar as high as loftier biopics, but it's a heartwarmer.

There are no revolutionary changes made to the underdog formula, but the movie is special in that it celebrates the pride one finds in the simple act of participation.

It's a fun little dramedy that offers some laughs and some triumphs and some big sappy feelings, nothing more. And what's wrong with that?

It's fluff, but it's charming fluff that ultimately works well.

The overkill indicates an awareness that none of these would-be messages ring true.

The predictability can be a turn-off to some and even the feel-good and wholesome tone can be a bit much but overall, Eddie the Eagle is a fun time.
