Storyline

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 Liz Jordan <c9310494@alinga.newcastle.edu.au>

Goofs

In the opening face-off of the final championship game, the referee places the puck on what is obviously a piece of highly reflective polished silver stainless steel, not white ice, that is painted to look like the markings on a hockey rink. You can tell the difference when the camera quickly switches to an overhead view of the players trying to swipe the puck, the surface is now white with no reflections and the markings are all scraped up from use and are dull in color.

C'mon, now, you know you can't resist those cute little kids with hockey sticks! And no one can resist the charms of Emilio Estevez! Put them together, and, damn, have you got one super cool movie! I mean, really, if a senior in high school still finds this flick cool, I'm pretty sure it'll work for anyone! :)
