Cool Runnings is on my list of top comedies not just because it has laughs, but because it has heart as well.
I might be a bit biased towards this movie, as it has a huge nostalgia factor to it. Cool Runnings is one of the clearest memories of my childhood- a comedy that felt light and fun even when dealing with serious topics of racism and redemption. The premise: Jamaica has a bobsled team! Based on the true story of the 1988 winter olympics, this movie has a heart of gold- pure comedic gold.
Watching the Jamaican team train in the sun is always worth a laugh, and there are many other funny (and touching) moments throughout the movie. It’s more than just a comedy, with themes of redemption and surmounting obstacles running throughout the movie. Want a nice light evening that will leave you with a perpetual smile on your face? Cool Runnings is the right choice for you.
That’s why Cool Runnings is on my list of top comedies. It manages to inspire and teach life lessons while keeping fun and easy to watch. This movie is perfect to watch with the family, or with anyone of any age. It teaches some good lessons that will help young kids learn a little bit about tolerance and perseverance. One of the best pg rated comedies for children AND adults.
