But if you just can’t get
enough of the Games, here are a few Olympic movies that will keep the action
going way past the end of the Closing Ceremonies (be sure to catch that action
tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC).
A former hockey
player-turned-coach makes a bunch of misfit boys into a team of hardworking
hockey players to rep Team USA in the 1980 Olympic Games. You’ll be biting your nails to see if they can take on an
unbeatable team in this triumphant flick.
Cool Running will have you in a fit of giggles and feeling oh-so-motivated at the
same time. This Olympic film is based on the brave athletes who decided to
start the first Jamaican Bobsled team and did the unthinkable, making it to
Canada for the 1988 Olympics. Talk about an underdog story!
Chariots of Fire
A ton of Olympic movies are
based on American athletes, but Chariots of Fire tells the true story of two from different backgrounds who
represent Great Britain at the 1924 Olympics in Paris. This flick will
definitely give you a lesson in what it means to be a hard worker.
The Cutting Edge
This one will have you seriously LOLing. The film centers around one of the
most loved winter sports: figure skating. Kate, a world-renowned skater, and
Doug, a skillful hockey player, must team up to compete in the 1988 winter Games
against another incredible team. But before they step foot in the Olympic
stadium, these talented athletes actually have to get along. Their hilarious
journey will keep you smiling the whole way through.
If you love horseback riding
and all things equestrian, then this is the Olympic flick for you. In International Velvet, Sarah Brown moves
from Arizona to England to live with her aunt after her parents are killed in a
car crash. It may be totally sad, but the rest of Sarah’s story gets better.
She goes on to represent her new home, Great Britain, in the Olympics, falls in
love and finds peace with her new fam.
There’s a mini history
lesson built into this movie, so pay close attention. Without Limits tells the story of Steve Prefontaine, an Olympic
runner who competed in the 1972 Winter Games. You’ll grab powerful messages
though the passionate and talented runner’s career, love and death. Plus, you’ll
be completely inspired to start running.
