Address Comments To:
COOL RUNNINGS is a very enjoyable film, with good acting performances by Leon, Doug E. Doug, Rawle D. Lewis, Malik Yoba, and John Candy. The film is a bit predictable, as most people are familiar with the story, but it is still quite enjoyable. After a summer of offensive releases such as HOCUS POCUS and MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK, Disney returns to a successful formula with COOL RUNNINGS, a very positive family-friendly film which promotes friendship, acceptance, integrity, and teamwork, as well as the importance of the support of family. The film also teaches an excellent lesson on competition and the relative importance of winning. A small amount of relatively mild foul language mars this otherwise very enjoyable film. COOL RUNNINGS is good fun and should be a hit.
