What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good biopic set in the 1980s about the unlikeliest of Olympians, England's Eddie Edwards (Taron Egerton), who dreamed of representing his country at the Olympics all his life and stopped at nothing to achieve that goal. While more is suggested than shown, there are some innuendos and sexual references, and a pub owner propositions Eddie. In one scene, a group of naked ski jumpers takes a sauna together; their bare chests and legs are visible. Language isn't frequent but includes occasional use of "s--t," "arse," "bloody," "ass," and the like; there are also a couple of scenes in which athletes get injured and/or are hospitalized. Adults smoke and drink in pubs (one drinks so often that the movie seems to suggest he's an alcoholic). Ultimately the story is an inspiring one of determination, courage in the face of overwhelming odds, discipline, and the spirit of the Olympics.
