Trivia On June 6, 2015, the real-life Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards told BBC news that the movie will be ninety percent made up. Edwards said, "I've been warned only ten to fifteen percent of it is based on my life." See more »
Goofs At the 1988 Calgary Olympics, ski jumpers have their skis "v-style" (tips spread apart) while in the air. V-style ski jumping came to competition in the 1990s. At the Calgary Olympics, ski jumpers kept their skis parallel in the air. See more »
