Nominee Golden Gibbo Award 2012 Melbourne Comedy Festival
Irving Blitzer (John Candy) disgraced himself when putting extra weights into his team's bobsled, resulting in his Olympic gold medal being taken away. Derice Bannock fails to qualify for the 100-yard sprint due to a stupid accident. But when Derice hears of Irving living in Jamaica, he decides to go to the Olympic Games anyway…as a bobsledder! In the freezing weather Derice, Sanka, Junior and Yul are only laughed at, since nobody can take a Jamaican bobsledding team led by a disgraced trainer seriously. But team spirit and a healthy self-confidence may lead to a few surprises in the upcoming Winter Olympic Games!
