View Full Version : FAVORITE MIGHTY DUCKS MOVIE


05-09-2006, 10:08 AM
What is your favorite Mighty Ducks movie? This pole will finally put to rest all the wars that were fought over which one was the best. Here is a refresher in case you forgot what each one was about.

The Mighty Ducks (1992)

Plot Summary: Gordon Bombay, a hotshot lawyer, is haunted by memories of his childhood, when, as the star player in his champion hockey team, he lost the winning goal in a shootout, thereby losing the game, and the approval of his coach. When the court orders him to coach a peewee hockey team, the worst in the league, Gordon is at first very reluctant. However, he eventually gains the respect of the kids and teaches them how to win, gaining a sponsor on the way and giving the team the name of The Ducks. In the finals, they face Gordon's old team, coached by Gordon's old coach, giving Gordon a chance to face old ghosts.

D2: The Mighty Ducks (1994)

Plot Summary: 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.

D3: The Mighty Ducks (1996)

Plot Summary: In the third episode of this series, the Ducks get scholarships to Eden Hall Academy, a high ranking prep school. But as freshmen, they will have to face the snob varsity team...

My vote goes to the second one because it introduced the one and only Russ Tyler and the knucklepuck.

And how goldberg and Russ change gear in a matter of minutes when it would take prolly 5-10, and no one notices.

Oh and how at the end no one knows if Julie caught he puck. Look in the back of the net, it should be there if she didn't stop it.

Both realistic. :roll:

A ******** blind boy could play better goalie than goldberg.

But in regards to the question. Definately one. I liked two until the end, when th cowboy lassoed someone. That ruined the movie for me. And that tiny asian beatin up that Iceland Goalie? C'mon. The third one was most realistic IMO. Except that Charlie became awesome in it, when he was the one who had to sit out the year before.

My Vote: #1 is the best

I doubt many 6 year olds who like Hockey hated the first one when it came out. If you are in high school you were probably more like 4 when it came out anyway. The movie is 14 years old already.

The third actually loses my vote on account of total lack of realism. We're supposed to go from believing this is a team that just won the world championship, knocking off the big, bad Icelanders to a team that gets pummelled by the varsity team at their high school? Maybe it's more of a realism problem with #2 and a continuity issue with the third one.

#2 was unrealistic because when is Iceland a power-house in hockey???? Even if it's for kids. The Russian, Canadian or Swedish kids would beat the Icelanders easily.

Acctually it's very possible that the former Junior champs would struggle against guys who are older then them. According to the movie the Ducks were freshmen while the Varsity team were upperclassmen who were coming off straight State championships. And that state is Minnesota, which produces a lot of future NHLers. If there's a HS in Minnesota that is that dominant then their team should be very talented.

They supposedly play in the Junior Goodwill Games in D2. Problem is, that's a program that doesn't include hockey as an event and is supposed to be for kids 8-13 years old. I wanna see some birth certificates if we're supposed to believe team Iceland resides in that age range. I get the distinct feeling we're looking at an under 18 junior tourney there.

Well that's yet another unrealistic thing about D2. D1 and D3 were more realistic.

Another unrealistic thing about D2 is that about 80% of US national team came from the SAME DISTRICT. There was a one goon from Chicago, a chick-goalie from Maine, a cowboy from Texas(yeah right :roll: ) and a Latino kid from Florida who couldn't even stop. The rest of the team was from District 5.

Later they added a Cali kid with a "knucklepuck" who could barely keep himself from falling face first to the ice.

If I was in charge of the Junior National team and Bombay were to give me this team, I'd kick his @$$ and fire him on the spot.

Well, like I said, it's really more of a continuity than a realism issue with #3, but right from the start, I could never get into that one at all, it was just too unbelievable. Which granted, is likely due just as much to the fact that just like most of the actors on the Ducks team, I was 18 at that point.

All I know is I ate the original one up as a kid and the other two didn't live up to that standard for one reason or another.

That picture was supposedly from 2005 from an O.C. photo shoot. I can't verify that though. You want to know where she looked really good though? "The Queen of the Damned." (the vamp movie with Aaliyah, in case the swearing filter bleeps out the last word of the title)
