The tale begins when Derice Bannock (Leon), realizing that due to an accident his chances of qualifying for Jamaica’s 1988 Olympic track team are dashed, scrounges around looking for another sport for the competition. Since ex-United States gold medal bobsledding winner Irv Blitzer (John Candy) now lives in Jamaica, Derice chooses bobsledding, convincing Irv to coach the team. Derice then forms his spirited team and they head off to the Olympics in the grand hopes for competing.

Based on the inspiring stranger-than-fiction true story, this hilarious, life-affirming 1994 family favourite is the perfect cinematic sporting celebration to cheer on in the build up to the Paris 2024 Olympic games.
