What could seem less likely that an olympic bobsled team form Jamaica - a land without snow?

How about a movie about an Olympic bobsled team form Jamaica? But in this case, "Cool Runnings" (Sunday, 8 p.m., Disney) turned out to be a pretty good film.John Candy, in one of his last film roles, plays the coach of these unlikely athletes. It's a nice movie with plenty of laughs. The folks at Disney are cable-casting it as their Sunday night feature-and it compares extremely favorably to what the broadcast networks are airing opposite it.

"Cool Runnings" is rated PG for violence (a barroom brawl as well as a few vulgarities.
