Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton in Eddie The Eagle (20th Century Fox)

Welsh actor Taron Egerton stars as real-life British Olympic ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards. It’s just a smidge better than every other sports anti-hero story, largely because ski jumping is ridiculously silly and also because Eddie just falls down mountains a lot. (There’s also a really funny book jacket that keeps reappearing.) Eddie’s an interesting character because he isn’t even very interested in ski jumping, he just sees it as a shortcut to Olympic glory. Hugh Jackman co-stars as the reluctant coach, a declawed Wolverine with a love of bar fights and a hatred of snooty Norwegians.
