Screen favorite Emilio Estevez (STAKEOUT, YOUNG GUNS) stars in THE MIGHTY DUCKS, the hilarious comedy that made moviegoers stand up and cheer! Tough trial lawyer Gordon Bombay (Estevez) never loses. But when he's slapped with a community service assignment, he must coach a ragtag team of pee wee hockey players who can't skate, can't score, and can't win! Reluctantly, Bombay takes on the assignment and soon realizes there are more important things than winning. Armed with this new attitude, feathers fly as Bombay and the Ducks battle along to the toughest game of their lives!
Disney had an unexpected hit with this predictable comedy about a smug lawyer (Emilio Estevez) busted for drunk driving and ordered to coach a sad-sack team of hockey-playing kids as community service. The kids triumph over their sundry problems, and Estevez's character grows up a little. End of story. A perfectly harmless movie for kids and adults who are giving their brains a night off. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"The Mighty Ducks" was perhaps written by a computer, but the actual writing credit goes to Steven Brill. He's the genius who also brought us such cinematic triumphs as "Ready To Rumble" and "Little Nicky". Ugh.
This movie has exactly one single piece of creativity to it. Somebody decided to cast Emilio Estevez as an attorney. I have to admit that such an inappropriate casting decision did get a chuckle out of me. Everything else in the film just disappointed me.
Within the first ten to fifteen minutes of the film, both poop and farting have been used in an attempt at humor. I have become exhausted with the experience of watching films that have the mentality of a 5 year old. Yes, these kinds of movies are geared toward kids, but come on...even kids need something more intelligent and witty than bodily function humor. It shows a true lack of any ability to come up with anything more interesting. It's a sign of desperation.
As far as the plot goes, you already know what it is. A lawyer is busted for DUI and is sentenced to perform 500 hours of community service as a kids' hockey coach. The team is made up of a bunch of kids who are usually snotty and causing trouble. They are terrible at hockey but the attorney turns them into a championship-caliber team in no time at all. THE END.
No humor, no creativity, no romance...not even a warm and fuzzy Disney message at its core. Just nothing but boredom. As a final insult, we all know that Disney actually purchased a hockey franchise and named them the Mighty Ducks as a form of promotion for their movies. Corporate America at its worst!
Great movie entertainment! I just love the whole Mighty Ducks trilogy! They teach great values about trust, teamwork, fair play, and as Coach Bombay used to say, 'all that other junk'. It's also very, VERY hilarious! Some parts you can just die laughing, for example when the kids get in trouble from the principal and are put under detention. The hockey games are pretty suspenseful and fun, too!
But there is a reason for the PG rating for this movie. Mostly it's because of language which at times is pretty bad. Also the kids in the movie are pretty naughty at times.Read more ›
The plot is pretty basic. An ex-hockey player turned hot-shot lawyer is forced to coach a losing hockey team made up of misfits. AFter some personality changes in the coach, he finds that hockey is still his thing and that he wishes to bring them to victory.
It's full of fun moments and you get to see a young Joshua Jackson before his Dawson Creek days or his appearance in Urban Legends! And I hate to admit this, but Emilio Estevez does a decent job. I think most of us are used to seeing Estevez as Billy the Kid in Young Guns and it's hard to imagine him in any other role. Especially a parental role!
This movie is a stepping stone for the next two that appear (But not on DVD?!?!). The next one is even more exciting (MIghty Ducks2-D2) with new players and a very cool storyline. By the 3rd movie, it's hard to believe they are high school and not college and you also get to see them grow up a bit.
The Mighty Ducks trilogy is a great set of films and not quite as mindless as the rest of the Disney fare available.
