Movie Info

In this sequel to the kid-friendly sports comedy The Mighty Ducks, Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) takes one more shot at a career as a professional hockey player, but a severe knee injury sidelines him for good. However, his success coaching a rag-tag pee-wee hockey team in Minneapolis (as chronicled in the first film) has attracted the attention of a major sportswear firm, which hires him to coach the United States team for the Junior Goodwill Games. Gordon reassembles most of the Mighty Ducks along with several new players, including a huge bully who is great on defense (if low on social skills), a figure skater who knows how to move on the ice, and a hotshot goalie who happens to be a girl. However, the excitement of a trip to Los Angeles and a large dose of overconfidence puts the team at a severe disadvantage when they're pitted against the top-ranked Icelandic team. D2: The Mighty Ducks features cameo appearances from hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, champion figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, whose athletic career has never involved ice skating.more

Audience Reviews for D2: The Mighty Ducks


Decent follow-up to The Mighty Ducks, D2 is a decent film that is entertaining but lacks something that made the first one such a memorable family sports film. D2 is less memorable, but is still somewhat entertaining. The cast here are decent and they do what they can to keep the film entertaining. D2 is not a perfect film, and leaves a lot to be desired. However the film is good for a sequel, but it could have been done better. I enjoyed the film; however it's not as fun as the first film. Overall I found the film to be mildly entertaining with decent performances and a decent story. The film never really is anything memorable or great, but for what it is, it manages to be quite entertaining. Originally seeing this when it first came out, I thought it was terrific, but with age you start to notice that films like this aren't that phenomenal, just mildly entertaining. For a sequel, D2 is much better than the third film and is fun to watch, but is never great. Despite the fact that the film has a few restraints with a so-so script, D2 is a good little film to watch as a family. I enjoyed the film, but preferred the first film overall, and like with every series, I thought that the sequel wasn't as solid as the first. D2 is entertaining, but it could have been a lot better, at least it's not as bad the third film, which was a train wreck of a film. For a sequel, this one is entertaining and despite its flaws, it's a lot of fun to watch with your family.

Saw it again!!! My favorite of the 3 films. God I love this movie, never get tired of it, I love them all. One of the best sports inspirational movies of all time for me.

After hurting his knee in an accident in the minor leagues, Gordon Bombay returns home. Jan has been promoting him as a good coach, and now, he has become the coach of Team USA. The Ducks are gathered again and joined by five new players- Dean Portman (a big enforcer), Ken Wu (an ex-figure skater), Julie Gaffney (a REALLY good goalie), Luis Mendoza (a "speedster"), and Dwyane Robertson (a cowboy, good puck handler). They are up against the world- including the big boys from Iceland. Can they win against the world?

I remember LOVING this movie when I was a kid. Liked all the new additions, but I'm going to have to rewatch and rejudge.
