Everyone enjoys rooting for the underdog, and there can’t be anyone more disadvantaged than a bobsled team training in the tropics. A lighthearted and often childish tale of Olympic trials and tribulations, bizarrely based on the true story of the Jamaican team’s history-making appearance at the 1988 games in Calgary, with the late John Candy as, unbelievably, the straight man (the down-on-his-luck coach) to the cast of youngsters and canines.
