Entertaining story - loosely based on true events - of four Jamaican bobsleighers who dream of competing in the Winter Olympics, despite never having seen snow.

With the help of a disgraced former champion desperate to redeem himself, the Jamaicans set out to become worthy of Olympic selection - and go all out for glory. One of John Candy's last film roles. Show less
