D2: The Mighty Ducks
Comedy • PG • 1994 • 1 hr 46 min
The Mighty Ducks are some of my absolute favorite movies
If you don't like D2, guess what? Still not a friend of mine.
This is the best results you could from a sequel about a peewee hockey league and that is the nicest thing I can say about it.
Weaker than the first installment, very predictable but that was Disney and the formula the genre followed. Still watchable and funny.
Classic kids sports movie. Fun to watch even if you don’t like sports much.
Takes the best parts of the first and elevates them to the world stage
An almost exact copy of the original with all the curveballs you would expect from a kids sports movie
Sports movie for kids without too much heart.
Everyone seems to love these movies. I think they are kinda boring. Maybe it’s a lack of interest in hockey…
There’s still some charm here, but it’s more sloppily written than the original and the shoehorning in of wannabe Hanson Bros doesn’t work.
After reckless young lawyer Gordon Bombay gets arrested for drunk driving, he must coach a kids hockey team for his community service. Gordon has experience on the ice, but isn't eager to return to hockey, a point hit home by his tense dealings with his own former coach, Jack Reilly. The reluctant Gordon eventually grows to appreciate his team, which includes promising young Charlie Conway, and leads them to take on Reilly's tough players.
After Gordon Bombay's hockey comeback is cut short he is named coach of Team USA Hockey for the Junior Goodwill Games. Bombay reunites the Mighty Ducks and introduces a few new players, however, he finds himself distracted by his newfound fame and must regather if the Ducks are to defeat tournament favourites Iceland.
The Ducks are offered scholarships at Eden Hall Academy but struggle with their new coach's methods and come under pressure from the board to retain their scholarships before their big game against the Varsity team.
