Pull Out the VHS: Best Black Films of the ’90s PART II

Cool Runnings (1993)

“Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time! COOL RUNNINGS!”  Who could forget this popular quote from Sanka Coffie, one of the Jamaican bobsledders played by actor Douglas Bourne (aka, Doug E. Doug). Walt Disney’s Cool Runnings is a fun story that shows the courage of a group of friends (though they didn’t all necessarily get along all the time) from Jamaica who try to compete with the big boys in the winter Olympics. This movie is seriously hilarious, and a nice film pushing for the underdog.
