High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer.
Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael "Eddie" Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself - even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.Written by

[showing Eddie the models of the different ramps]
I felll in love with this sport, man. It started with this little baby. This 15 metre little vixen. You manage to land that because it's meant to hook you into the sport, right, so otherwise you wouldn't even bother trying. The 40 meter, when you stack you get bruised, which I don't have to explain to *you*.
The 70 metre, you break bones and you're lucky if you can walk again. The 90 metre. The goddess. Let's just say in the Wild...

A Great Movie that left my Wife and I satisfied, inspired and smiling
A very funny, enjoyable and inspiring movie for the whole family.
A human interest film that are rare these days with so many movies that rely on bravado and special effects.
Based on a true story, which proves if you have dreams from a young age that persist you should follow them no matter what the odds are against them and ignore all the doubters that tell you you cannot achieve them.
The human spirit and believing in one's self are very powerful forces.
Eddie is a character that you cannot dislike.
Hugh Jackman's character helps Eddie achieve his dream since Eddie would not be deterred.
Eddie unknowingly helps Hugh Jackman's character out of his funk and he is re-born again.
We highly recommend this film.
