EDDIE THE EAGLE is a British comedy drama based on true story of an underdog ski jumper trying to reach the 1988 Winter Olympics.

Sex

There are mild sex references as a ski coach tells his pupil to treat ski jumping as if he were having sex with a film star. The scene includes comic references to 'foreplay' and 'rhythm' as the coach pulls comic faces and imitates comic sex noises to demonstrate.

Other references include a woman making a suggestive comment about sharing a cupboard with a man.

Language

Mild bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'bloody, 'bugger' and 'crap'.

Other issues include partial natural nudity as men sit in a sauna.

There is some mild violence as a man is punched on the nose during a very brief bar fight.

Bruises and cuts are seen on a man's face after a skiing accident.

Some characters are seen to smoke cigarettes.
