Gordon Bombay, a hotshot lawyer, is haunted by memories of his childhood, when, as the star player in his champion hockey team, he lost the winning goal in a shootout, thereby losing the game, and the approval of his coach. After being charged for drunk driving, the court orders him to coach a peewee hockey team, the worst in the league, Gordon is at first very reluctant. However, he eventually gains the respect of the kids and teaches them how to win, gaining a sponsor on the way and giving the team the name of The Ducks.

I thought that this was a good movie. It was a movie that you could sit down with the entire family, and still have a good time. It is a typical story line, and you pretty much know the end, but still, it is a fun journey from the beginning to the end of the film. This is a movie that everyone should see with their kids.
