Have we just been transported back in time, or did our favorite childhood movie just become reality?
Now that the Winter Olympics are in full swing in Sochi, we have all eyes on the Jamaica bobsled team and we are getting flashbacks of our favorite underdog team.
Cool Runnings was that movie you watched on the Disney channel as a kid 25 years ago. Based on a true story, this 1993 movie has only gotten better with age as we re-watch and relive the experience that captured us more than two decades ago.
Telling the story of the first Jamaican bobsled team to ever compete in the Winter Olympics, it won over the hearts of every kid in the 90s.
While a lot of the movie that wasn't completely accurate, it was still a memorable moment of our childhood.
So let's take a look at things you might not know about Disney's Cool Runnings.
Cool Runnings beat some classic movies
In a poll conducted by LOVEFiLM, Cool Runnings was ranked as the number one feel-good movie of all time, beating out Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Forrest Gump, It's a Wonderful Life and Little Miss Sunshine.
The movie was supposed to star Denzel Washington
Washington was originally offered the role of Derice Bannock, but he turned it down. The role then went to Leon and the rest of his history. Eddie Murphy was also offered the role of Sanka, but turned down the offer because the pay was too little.
Drugs had an impact on this movie
Screenwriter Tom Swerdlow wrote Cool Runnings while high on heroin. He made the confession during a Reddit AMA saying that the drug gave him 'structure'.
“It allows you to be rebellious and at the same time, completely structures your time and focus,” he wrote. “It gives you everything and it asks for everything.”
The writer almost died from his drug addiction in 2007, which pushed him to eventually get clean.
The team didn't experience such harsh opposition as depicted in the movie
The movie really made us think that the Jamaican bobsled team faced some pretty harsh opposition, but in reality that wasn't the case. One team even offered the Jamaicans a backup sled so they would have a better chance to qualify.
The characters were fictional
While the story was based on true events, all the characters in the movie were fictional. Producers wanted the movie to stand on its own, so they decided to come up with characters that weren't based on real people.
