Very funny movie. I believe this was the great John Candy's last, too?

It's a comedy that tells a good story and has an uplifting message. There should be more movies like this.

Not his last no, that was Wagons East I think. He died during the making of it and they had to do something with the film to complete his remaining lines / scenes etc. I believe. Someone will post the correct details on here I'm sure.

Remember the guy who wanted to live at Buckingham Palace lol

He didnt know that the queen lived there - Sanka's response was funny 'you would have to marry her, if you wanna live there' lol

Paddy
they had to either use a stand in for some scenes that couldnt be changed or rewrite others to not involve him

^ Thanks for the heads up on iPlayer. Just finished watching it. Really enjoyed it. I had no idea that the original footage of the real-life Jamaican Olympic bobsled team's actual crash (caused by the driver's mistake) was used in this film. Anyway, although it relies a tad heavily on stereotypes, Cool Runnings is fun. So quotable, too.

My favourite:

Yul: How 'bout I beat your butt right now?
Sanka: How 'bout I draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt?

I was so disappointed not to see them in the Olympics this year.
