Broadsheet Trailer Park: Eddie The Eagle

What you may need to know:

1. Yes, really.

2. For the benefit of those too young to remember, Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards was a British ski jumper who came last at the 1988 Winter Olympics. It was a thing for about two weeks back in the day.

3. At one point Edwards held the British ski jumping record. Which is kind of like holding the record for beach volleyball in Mongolia.

4. Directed by Dexter Fletcher. Or Baby Face from Bugsy Malone (1976) as he’s known round these parts.

5. I can’t get stupid sexy Flanders out of my head.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Fly like a turnip.

Release Date:
April 1 (Oh, come on)

    I stood at the top of a ski jump last year, looked down and remembered all the slagging and jokes I passed on about The Eagle and felt so bad. The lad had balls as big as King Kong, those ski jumps are crazy steep and terrifying, he deserves an MBE or something like that from Queenie.
