Cool Runnings Review

Remember the second miracle on ice, the Jamaican bobsled team? Well after the international joke wore off (I seem to remember seeing a t-shirt or two during college) there was the movie Cool Runnings, which dramatizes the tumultuous road to the Olympics (which did everything in its power to keep the team out) and their thrilling last place finish. Of course, this isn't a movie about winning. It's about winning not being everything; it's almost the anti-sports movie. While the film is cute and charming, it isn't without its copious cliches. All in all, it's pretty much as expected.
