Oh, Eddie may not sound like the breathless sports film of the late winter, with its milk-drinking protagonist and decided lack of edge.

But Egerton is so gosh-darn sweet as the skier, and Hugh Jackman makes such a swell jerk as his trainer, Bronson Peary, that you'll take the ride with them anywhere, even to the top of a 90-meter ski jump (that's 30 stories, by the way).
Eddie the Eagle is in theaters now.
