Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is sure to warm your heart and cool down your summer! Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards - an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper, enlists the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming an Olympian. This heart-warming tale starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman is available on Digital HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD.  
To celebrate the release of the film, I had some friends and family over for an Eddie the Eagle Bingo Night.  It was good ole' fashion fun.  We first watched the movie in its entirety, with no interruptions.  This gave us the chance to see this uplifting, heartwarming story.  The plot took us back to the late 80s, during the Winter Olympics.  It revolves around a guy with a determined heart whose mission was to be involved in the Olympics, and later decides it's going to be ski jumping.  With an unlikely coach who is rough around the edges, Eddie accomplishes his goal.

After we watched the film, we went a second go-round with it.  Only this time we watched it while playing Bingo, searching for picture clues that are in the movie.  We amped it up by wearing "I'm Mum" and "I'm Dad" tshirts and sipping on hot chocolate in themed mugs.  As you can tell from the pictures, the guys were more apt to be the "Mums" for the night.

We used chocolate candy pieces to mark the Bingo cards as we spotted the pics from the movie.  As it was, the guys got more Bingos than the girls. 

The movie itself was endearing to watch but we had a great time as a group, sitting back and enjoying each other's company while we laughed and heartily competed.
