Eddie the Eagle (2016)

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

Okay so it's cheesy, but it's so much fun! Both Egerton and Jackman look like they're having a blast and the simple fact that you can't help but root for Eddie in every scene is testament to this films success. This isn't a biopic, but there's enough truth here to show the fella for the hero he is, a real inspiration, Edwards should be remembered as such. Not sure this is the traditional summary that most Olympians would want, but Eddie isn't most Olympians. He was a bit daft, just like this film, but blimey if it doesn't make you smile, massive euphoric fist pumping smiles!!
