    WOW! Watching this movie brings back so many memories!! I
    had the lucky pleasure of meeting, partying, and hanging
    out with 2 of these guys AFTER the 88 Olympics. They were
    back in Calgary in 1990, training at C.O.P. and would, (on
    occasion) come into DOOIE STEVENS Nightclub. They were a
    BLAST!! Now, they never really drank, because they were in
    training... but there was one night that i remember...

    We bought this movie several years ago,every time I watch
    it I cry at the end when they carry the sled across the
    finish line. My daughter has just returned from a workcamp
    to Maranatha School for the Deaf in Jamaica, on an evening
    when they were allowd to ask questions about the culture
    her questions were all reguarding the Jamican bobsled team!
    And pictures of push carts are among her photo album!
    Without knowing it this team has inspiried many people from
    many countries to reach for their goals by being themselves
    and following their dreams!

    John Candy delivered the goods and truly is a promising
    star. I really believe that this was the best movie ever.
    Daurice was a classic role and although Sanka was low class
    he was rugged. It was awesome. Top notch film. Saurbran
    is a genius.

    It was great!!! I watched it 3 times now. However I wonder:
    Is it really a true story?

    I LOVED it. I liked the part when Sanka could'nt put on his
    helmet,and so coach bopped the top of his head!!! I also
    liked the part when Daurice first came up with the idea of
    the Jamican Bobsled Team, and he went to go meet his future
    coach and annoyed him so much the coach was about to hit
    them with the pool stick like the same thing he did with
    the radio and they ran like the living heck!!!^_^

    Another clean fun movie. John Candy is hilarious just as
    other movies he did. I met him on the set in Calgary while
    being a stand in for the German Sledder, Gruel. Not to be
    biased but it ranks as one of the best. I can't believe
    that it has been 7 years already.

    This Is One Of The Best Films I Have Seen. I Think Sanka Is
    Amazing, And I Would Really Like To Meet Doug E Doug, And
    Now I Really Would Like To Go To Jamaca, And Kiss His Lucky
    Does Anyone Know How I Can Get Doug E Doug's Autograph?

    Cool Runnings was the best movie! It was really cool! I
    thought it was funny when Doug E. Doug kept wanting people
    to kiss his lucky egg. He was the best!! ^ ^
