Super feel good film – you can’t help but smile through out the whole thing! Definitely entertaining!

Eddie The Eagle turns a long-running joke of British sport into a crowd-pleasing story of inspiration. It’s a solid gold winner.

A light-hearted and thoroughly inspiring underdog tale – with lovable performances from Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton.
