Storyline

Gordon Bombay is forced to withdraw from the minor hockey league with a knee injury. Much to his surprise, he is given the job of coach of Team USA Hockey for the Junior Goodwill Games in California. With most of the Ducks and a few new players in tow, he sets forth for LA. All appears to be going well for a while, but the hype of Hollywood starts to get to Gordon, and he is distracted when Iceland, the favourites to win the title, appear on the scene.

Trivia

The scene after the first game with Iceland where Coach Bombay makes the team do sprints is based on Herb Brooks' 1980 US Olympic team when they tied the Norwegian national team in an exhibition game. The team skated for about an hour even though the rink manager had turned the lights off. See more »

Good fun!
2 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A friendly sequel that (like the original) overcomes its decrepit underdog theme with likable humour and genuine chemistry between its actors. This time round the team and coach Emilio Estevez head out to L.A.'s Junior Goodwill Games and a face-off with the black-clad Icelandic team.

When the hockey sequences kick in, the movie has real energy: Sam Weisman's speedy direction and an exciting score by J.A.C. Redford really got me caught up in the action. The plot essentially rotates three different scenes - game, montage, moralising - which does wear a bit thin at times, but the film sensibly gets back out on the ice before boredom can set in.

I've got a real soft spot for this series. This is the least of them, but it's fun all the same.
