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

When Dwayne Robertson was introduced, he says "It's a great day for hockey." That was a tribute to former Pittsburgh Penguins/Calgary Flames/Wisconsin University Badgers coach and former USA Hockey executive "Badger" Bob Johnson, who died in 1991, shortly after coaching the Pittsburgh Penguins to their first Stanley Cup championship and before he was to coach Team USA in the 1991 Canada Cup Tournament. That was how Johnson greeted his players every day. See more »
Many time during the hockey games, players go off the bench, but no-one comes on the bench in their place, putting too many players on the ice. See more »
Who was that man in the suit with the wet hair? Was it raining?
It's a style, Jan.
You looked like you just got out of the shower.
You came 2,000 miles to make fun of me? You could have done this over the phone.

There are a few too many inspirational speeches and it's totally predictable, but...
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.
