Eddie the Eagle

It’s been a week since I sat down and did an “Olympic” Double Feature; bwa-ha-ha-ha!  Anyway, being in a small town we don’t get movies as quickly as the bigger theaters and towns, but that is completely okay, it allows us to have an “Olympic” Double Feature.

First up for me was “Eddie the Eagle”.  A movie about one of the quirkiest Olympian to grace the modern Winter Olympics.  Now, the interesting thing is that this is not the first time the ’88 Calgary Olympics has been the subject for the Hollywood story tellers.  Can you guess the first?  “We are a Jamaican bobsled team…” that’s right, Disney’s “Cool Running”

So, is “Eddie the Eagle” up to the gold standard of your time and money?
