10) Eddie The Eagle – Bo Derek
It’s easy to be cynical about generic ‘feel good’ movies, but it’s much harder to be cynical about something as genuinely heartfelt and funny as Eddie the Eagle.

Eddie the Eagle is an innocent film about a hopelessly naive young man, but its single best scene is its most risque: the one in which Jackman’s frequently soused coach Bronson Peary teaches Taron Egerton’s Eddie how to ski jump, explaining that the key is moving his body as though he’s making love to Bo Derek. Jackman has never looked so ridiculous and, seemingly, he’s never had so much fun.
