A completely predictable but a very adorable and inspiring movie. Great cast! They are both sweet and endearing.

The Billy Elliott of ski jumping. Endearing comedy that culminates in an exhilarating finale at the 88 Calgary Winter Olympics.

Sweet and uplifting! Great "Special Features" - not to be missed! Wonderful to know that a man like this exists in the world!

A fun family movie. Quite uplifting and entertaining. It's a good tale of stubborn determination to follow one's dreams. Placing last is fine. It's more important to try your best and enjoy the moment for they may never come again.

Enjoyable film that is uplifting and has the cliché moments intact. Worth a watch.

Fun movie but not as funny as "Cool Runnings" about the Jamaican bobsled team. Not one of Hugh Jackman's best efforts, but Eddie the eagle himself did well.

Great fun! Very pleasantly surprised by funny scenes, great script-writing, wonderful acting. Also enjoyed the special features, with remarks by present-day Eddie Edwards.

Bronson Peary: Eddie, listen. You got more dedication, you got more heart and spirit than any of those other jumpers out there. Any of them. Oh, Jesus, I spent six months trying to get rid of you, dude. You're like gum on my shoe, you never gave up. I mean, are you gonna give up now, at the Olympics? This is your moment. You're Eddie the Eagle, man. I'm proud of you. I'm proud of myself.

Eddie Edwards: Do you realize that smoking cigarettes is a lot more dangerous than jumping the 90 metres?
