Rated PG-13 · 105 minutes · 2016
Cut from the Olympic ski team, British athlete Michael "Eddie" Edwards travels to Germany to test his skills at ski jumping. Fate leads him to Bronson Peary, a former ski jumper who now works as a snowplow driver. Impressed by Edwards' spirit and determination, Peary agrees to train the young underdog. Despite an entire nation counting him out, Eddie's never-say-die attitude takes him all the way to a historic and improbable showing at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta.

Charleston City Paper Eddie the Eagle hits every underdog-story bullet point Why are movies about inspirational stories so uninspired? In a way, that's a question with an obvious answer. Formulas are formulas because they work. Hell, movie reviews often have a formula, too, and it would be more than slightly disingenuous not to acknowledge that there is value in having certain elements to provide a basic structure and shape. by Scott Renshaw 02/24/2016
