Trivia

When Mr. Butler speaks with Karen Morgan after the boys' first soccer loss, condensation of his breath is visible (at around 38 mins), so filming was done when the weather was chilly in Montréal. See more »

Can You Say "Mighty Ducks Ripoff"?
13 October 2001 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Other then having already seen the exact same story in the past in a movie called "The Mighty Ducks", this was an OK movie.

This time, the action is on a soccer field, not a hockey rink. But it is pretty much the same. A loser with a hidden past takes on some misfit kids in a soccer team that never wins. He turns out to be a former pro player who lost it all during a gambling scandal.

While it is nice to see Steve acting again, his character is almost the same as in any of his other movies. And the fact that the plot is so obvious does not make this a very enjoyable movie.

Unless you are a Guttenberg fan, go ahead and skip this movie. I hope that Steve can get back to some real roles, like he had in Splash or Short Circut.
