Cool Runnings Is 25 Years Old Today And It’s Still One Of The Greatest Films Ever
Remember that time when four Jamaican bobsledders decided to enter the Winter Olympics? Yes, we're talking about Cool Runnings.
Oh, and it's the 25th anniversary of the film -- feel a little bit old hearing that?
We certainly do!
It's not surprising that it became a beloved film for anyone who was born in the '90s, creating a truly memorable viewing from start to finish.
Cool Runnings is based on the true story of the Jamaican bobsled team that competed at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Earlier this year, three members of that team -- Devon Harris, Michael White and Chris Stokes -- spoke to Today about their experience at the competition.
"It was the second week of the Olympics," Harris said (via the Daily Mail). "We go, hey. We should enter to win a medal.
"In three days, we taught [Chris Stokes] everything we knew about pushing a sled, because he didn't know that much. We only needed three days."
It might be the perfect time to find a DVD copy and relive this incredible story one more time.
