Eddie the Eagle

It was a quiet Friday night at home, so time to catch up on the $1 dollar movies from itunes.  I had never seen Eddie the Eagle and I must admit to quite enjoying this classic story of the underdog doing good.  Eddie is just a young boy with difficulty walking when he sets his sights on getting an Olympic medal. 

So he ends up being a Olympic ski jumper - a pretty scary sport, especially when he was mostly self trained.  You can't help but cheer for him and it made me want to read more of his real life story.  4/5

I like that Jackman is a good enough actor - and excellent actor - to be able to portray Wolverine repeatedly yet not be typecast. That doesn't happen a lot.
