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.

There are a few too many inspirational speeches and it's totally predictable, but...
12 November 2006 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee 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.

6/10
