Goofs

The school's ice rink has banners hanging from all over the ceiling and an American flag hanging almost flush to the wall. The flag is hanging vertically with the stars in the top right hand corner, when in fact the proper position of the stars, whether a flag hangs vertically or horizontally, is in the top left corner.

Quotes

Coach Orion: Hey, Charlie, we're really backed into a corner here. We hold them for two minutes, we got ourselves a tie.
Charlie Conway: We're up to it, Coach.
Coach Orion: I know you are, but you deserve to win. Not careless, but not too careful either. If you see your shot, take it. Make sure it counts.
[puts a "C" on Charlie's jersey]
Coach Orion: Go get 'em, Captain.

Average movie
6 July 2001 | by TheLastStop41See all my reviews

Over all, this is an average movie. Here are the negative parts of the film. What was the point in putting Emilio Estevez's name on the front cover of the movie box if he is only in about three scenes of the movie? In the first place he should of been their coach through the series. This movie also had a lack of hockey. How realistic is it to come back from 9-0 in one period of hockey? Disney you need to give me a break. Here is also something unrealistic. Don't you think the ducks would be the varsity team? In D2 they went to the junior good will games and played on team USA. They should be able to easily beat the real varsity team. Like Adam Banks said in D2 they were good enough to play against the world. Coach Orion was annoying too. Bad mistake for Bombay to leave. Like I was saying before the movie had a lack of hockey. Throughout the movie you only see them play three games. Here are the positive things to say. The pranks were funny. I especially liked the one with horse turd. Over all I give this movie ** of ****.
