Product Description

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!

Amazon.ca

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars The definition of a formula movie. March 28 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Famed movie critic Roger Ebert stated in his review for this film that it "might have been written by a computer program". That describes this movie perfectly.
"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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The first of 3 Mighty Ducks films! Dec 3 2002
Format:DVD
I somewhat doubt there will be a 4th Mighty Ducks movie. Think about it, there hasn't been a mighty ducks out since 1996. This was the first of three Mighty Ducks movies to come out. Gordon Bombay was a pee-wee hockey player up until he qutis when he misses a pentiity shot. And about 20 to 25 years later he is a lawyer (who claims he never loses) but he doresn't count a case when he scored with a reporter. His rival is Frank Hundy (Steven Brill) and he decides in a case to pretend to have a meeting with his client when he just wants to keep them waiting. But then Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) is arrested for drinking and dvring. Where in a case where he denfes fimself that the judge finds out that Gordon has trouble with the law. And his boss (Josef Soommer) decides to keep him on play roll but suspend his divers lience and orders Gordon to 500 hours of commuity servce coaching pee-wee hockey. He hates hockey and he doesn't like kids. His first game is against he old pee-wee team (the Hawks) coached by his old Hawks coach Jack Reilly (Lane Smith). If you like this how about you watch the 2nd Mighty Ducks movie.

When he was young, Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) used to play hockey but when he blows a really big game, he quits. Now thirty, he's a lawyer who doesn't know anything about fair play or teamwork. When he gets arrested for drunken driving, he has to perform community service. And not just any community service, he has to coach hockey to kids! His team consists of Charlie Conway (Joshua Jackson), Greg Goldberg (Shaun Weiss), Dave Averman (Matt Doherty), Peter (J.D. Daniels), Gee Germaine (Garette Ratliff Henson), Jesse Hall (Brandon Quintin Adams), Connie Moreau (Marguerite Moreau), Dave Karp (Aaron Schwartz), and Terry Hall (Jussie Smollett). And they are an AWFUL team! Bombay hates the kids and doesn't try hard to coach them, and so of course the kids don't respect or like him at all. Will they ever be able to work as a team with Coach Bombay acting like the good coach he should be? And will they have enough time to make it to the finals against unbeatable team, Hawks? Also starring is Hans (Joss Ackland), Mr. Ducksworth (Josef Sommer), Fulton Reed (Elden Henson), Tammy (Jane Plank), and Tommy (Danny Tamberelli), Coach Reilly (Lane Smith), and Adam Banks (Vincent Larusso).
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Cuz Ducks fly together!!!" July 25 2001
By Sun Ce
Format:DVD
I'm a little old for kiddie movies, yet this movie was sooooo cool. I played different sports when I was younger, but this movie made me wish I played hockey! It's a great kids film; no sex, no real violence (it's hockey...), hardly any swearing, BUT very funny. I haven't been delighted like this since... Since... The Bad News Bears!
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.
