Cool Runnings DVD

Starring Leon, Doug E. Doug, Rawle D. Lewis, Malik Yoba, John Candy

Directed by Jon Turteltaub



Based on a real scenario at the 1988 Olympics, this comedy focuses on the trials and tribulations of the first ever Jamaican bob-sled team and their coach (John Candy).

Derice Bannock is due to qualify for Jamaica's track team but due to an accident his hopes are dashed.

He finds out that a gold-medallist lives in Jamaica, former US resident and bob-sled champion Irv Blitzer (Candy) and persuades him to coach a team for entry into the 1988 Olympics.

However, the team Bannock puts together has never sat in a bob-sled let alone seen snow.
