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. In the finals, they face Gordon's old team, coached by Gordon's old coach, giving Gordon a chance to face old ghosts. Written by

In the opening scene, Coach Rielly says to Gordon "Alright Gordon, it's up to you. I don't wanna see any goats around here after the game, you got it? Now you miss this shot, you're not just letting me down you're letting your whole team down too." But then later when we see Gordon skating and thinking about this event Coach Reilly says to him "Alright it's up to you Gordon. Now you miss this shot, you're not just letting your team down, you're letting me down too." See more »
[Gordon has defeated Frank at court]
You really stooped to an all-time low on this one, Bombay.
I'm insulted by that, Frank, you have no idea how low I can stoop.
I mean, I don't mind losing; I'd just like to lose fairly.
Losing fair is still losing, Frank. Gotta go for the "W" every time!
And what about justice, huh? That man, he should be in jail.
It was your job to put him there, so don't take it out on me! Next time do your job, Franky-Boy.

Just recently, I saw D2 and D3, my friend unfortunately did not have the first Mighty Ducks movie, so I had to watch those first then rent this one. The second and the third were pretty good movies, but I felt bad, because it felt like you're getting into a group of friends, and you don't know their history, you weren't there? You know that feeling, and as silly as it sounds, that's how I felt watching the sequels without seeing the first one.
Gordon is a lawyer who has had a little trouble with the lying in his career, therefore, he must do community service. When he sees a group of young pre-teen troubled youths playing a game of hockey, remembering his childhood love of hockey, he volunteers to become their coach in the Pee-Wee games. He starts off on a rocky relationship since he doesn't like kids, but he grows to love them and they do back learning that there is more to a game than just winning, but it'd be nice since they end up in the championships.
I loved The Mighty Ducks, I felt like it was a terrific family film and I'm surprised it wasn't played in my childhood since I was seven years old when it came out, but you know the saying, better late then never, right? I would highly recommend this up lifting story for any family!
