Cool Runnings

When three Jamaican Olympic sprint contenders trip at the trials, they join up with another Jamaican to form Jamaica's first bobsled team to find another way to represent their country. This is the true story of four Jamaicans in the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Continuity mistake: When the bobsled team is getting their act together in Calgary, there's a scene of them pushing off with an unpainted bobsled. In the shots of the feet of the guys pushing at the back of the sled, you can see that the lower back of the sled is painted black with green stripes, the colours that they paint the sled in a scene a few minutes later.
