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. Written by

Iceland's team name is the Vikings which is also the name of the NFL team in Minnesota, where Gordon Bombay and several team USA players are from. See more »

When I was six years old I borrowed this movie from my cousin in Montreal and I loved it. I watched it about fifty times and never got tired of it, and then I had to give it back. I saw it again recently, and some things just didn't sit right. First of all, there's no way that an American Midget team like that could beat an All-Star team from Canada. Secondly, the people who did this movie decided for whatever reason to make the most menacing team in this tournament Iceland!!! Iceland hasn't even been to the World Juniors in years! Or made the Olympics. They may have all of ten players in the NHL right now. How did they suddenly become so good? Forget Russia, forget Canada, ICELAND!!! Holy crap what a mistake! And did anyone notice that the team from Iceland had an average player age of about twenty two? That being said, the hockey scenes were pretty well-done for a movie, unlike the abomination Screech Owls series, which took a good series of books and handed the 'acting' credits to a bunch of kids who couldn't skate! And one more thing: Who the hell decided to give JAMAICA a team in an international hockey tournament. That's a joke! If you're gonna get blown out of the water every game you should never have made the cut to get in in the first place! But I loved the movies when I was a kid. Now I think that the first one is the only one worth watching.
