Eddie the Eagle

Eddie the Eagle

Taron Egerton (hot off Kingsmen: The Secret Service) and Hugh Jackman star in this shaggy, inspirational tale based (loosely, really) on the story of British ski jumper Eddie Edwards, whose tenacity (and not his somewhat dodgy skill) landed him a spot in the 1988 Calgary Olympics. It's all paint-by-numbers sporting biopic filmmaking, but Egerton does his utmost to inhabit the dorky, lovably uncharismatic skin of Eddie. It's hard not to cheer a bit as Eddie follows his extreme underdog dreams of Olympic infamy. FULL REVIEW: Sporting biopic sticks strictly to the bunny hill, but it’s a crowd-pleaser nonetheless by Devin D. O’Leary (2/25/2016). 105 minutes PG-13.
