Cool Runnings (1993)

Cool Runnings 2
Buena Vista Pictures

Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, it's bobsled time! This comedy was loosely (very loosely) based on the true story of Jamaica's first bobsled team. Lead by coach John Candy, this lovable fish-out-of-water group of Jamaican sprinters tries to adjust to a new sport, and the cold of a Canadian winter to compete in the Calgary Olympics.
