Now lest you think I have just given away the entire plot of "Cool Runnings," let me assure you that what I have described is not this movie, but virtually every movie of its genre. If the plot of "Cool Runnings" resembles it in (let us say) many details, it has only itself to blame.
"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek.." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand. and his name is Shrek.

It&rsquo s not surprising that Tommy Swerdlow&rsquo s helming debut about three heroin addicts in desperate search of a fix reeks with authenticity. The film&rsquo s director/co-writer was an addict himself for nearly two decades, suffering open-heart surgery and a near-fatal bleeding ulcer as a result. Known for his screenplays for such family-oriented comedies as Cool Runnings and Snow Dogs , Swerdlow has now turned his experiences into A Thousand Junkies , a film geared to a decidedly different demographic. It recently made its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
and my coach. Hey, if it's revenge you want, take it. Go ahead, disqualify me, banish me! Do whatever you want, but do it to me! It was me who let you down, Kurt! It wasn't my guys! They've done everything you've asked of them! And they did it with all of you laughing in their face. Hey, it doesn't matter tomorrow if they come in first or fiftieth. Those guys have earned the right to walk into that stadium and wave their nation's flag. That's the single greatest honor an athlete can ever have. That's what the Olympics are all about. Sixteen years ago I forgot that. Don't you go and do the same.
It all started when two American businessmen living in Jamaica were inspired by a local pushcart derby, according to the Jamaican Bobsleigh Federation. The men, George Fitch and William Maloney, thought the sport looked like bobsledding. They took their idea for a Jamaica bobsled team to the country 8767 s Olympic association.
Susan B. Landau , a producer whose credits include 6998 8767 s Cool Runnings , the 7555 TV-movie reunion Mary and Rhoda , and 6999 8767 s An Ideal Husband , died May 86 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles following a brief illness. She was 65.
They got a fast start that day, but Stokes lost control of the sled at 85 miles per hour and crashed, according to The Guardian. The teammates were trapped underneath the sled. Unlike the inspirational scene in 8775 Cool Runnings, 8776 the team did not lift the sled over their heads to carry it across the finish line. One of the teammates, Devon Harris, told The Guardian they 8775 did what any team would have done 8776 and pushed the sled to the end of the track before lifting it.
Here's the rest of the real story of how Jamaicans learned to bobsled — a sport that athletes from the country will still compete in this winter Olympics :
Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing. But if you're not enough without one, you'll never be enough *with* one.
