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

Brandon Quintin Adams and Kenan Thompson didn't get along during filming, which is one of the reasons that Adams chose not to appear in D3: The Mighty Ducks (1996). See more »

Goofs

Adam says he is from Edina, which is a suburb of Minneapolis. In the first movie, his address is mentioned as 450 N. Hennepin Avenue. In reality, Hennepin Avenue is in Minneapolis proper is does not extend into Edina, so Adam would have to have moved between the two movies for this to make sense. (This is also doubtful, as he is derisively called "cake-eater" in both movies; cake-eater is often used disparagingly in the Twin Cities for residents of the affluent Edina.) See more »

There are a few too many inspirational speeches and it's totally predictable, but...
12 November 2006 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

For some odd reason, I liked D2: The Mighty Ducks. Now, obviously, I haven't had the opportunity to see The Might Ducks, you know, the first one? But my friend only had the second and the third, so I'm watching those first and hopefully I didn't have to see the first one to understand the second. But I got the story just fine, not to mention, after reading the summary of The Mighty Ducks, I get the point of the movie.

Basically, Gordon now has the chance to coach his Mighty Ducks again, only this time, they are Team U.S.A. They are fighting against the best Pee-Wee hockey teams in the world, including the very nasty, plays against the rules, Iceland Team. Now, if you've seen The Karate Kid, you get where this is going. Of course, Gordon changes and wants to win instead of have fun, leading the team into stress, and again, if you've seen Rocky, you get the point.

See what I mean by how predictable it was? Not to mention how many inspirational speeches there were, I was getting a toothache from how many there were, they were so sweet, it was unbearable. But I thought that it was a fun family film that the kids would definitely get a kick out of. As silly as it was, it is a good film for the kids, for morals, you know? :-D But, just sit back and enjoy, you never know, you might like it as well.
