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

This movie is just about rock bottom. It spits in the face of the great sport of hockey. Every game scene is unrealistic or just to dam slow to be real.The characters are dull and forgettable and I know the movie is a comedy but guess what it fails at that to.
*To hockey players a few scenes imparticular bug me are the shoot out scene because no one does any of those moves or the goalie takes slapshots form 50 feet. Its annoying to see terrible actors playing even worse hockey players. Also the scene where Russ Tyler comes 40 ft out of the net takes his helmet of and shoots a knuckle puck(Fakest shot ever) and scores a terrible goal to tie the game. The final scene that takes the cake is when the cowboy hockey player from Texas takes goes into the shoot out he does two moves both used in real hockey unfortunately there so out of context they look pointless and accomplished nothing.
The first move was the Michigan where he picks it up on his stick. This move is used usually to pick the puck up from behind the net and score. The second move is the "through the legs" which is normally only used to get around a defensman.
All in all this movie is terrible the only reason it isn't given one star by the decent performance of Emilo Estevez
