Movie Info

After reckless young lawyer Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) 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 (Lane Smith). The reluctant Gordon eventually grows to appreciate his team, which includes promising young Charlie Conway (Joshua Jackson), and leads them to take on Reilly's tough players.

Critic Reviews for The Mighty Ducks

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (23)

  • While nicely layered with tough, conflicting personal questions, Ducks ultimately flaps off into easy outcomes and pat contrivances. Still it's an overall charmer, and director Stephen Herek keeps it flying with a nifty mix of slapstick and action.

  • Very lame ice-hockey flick.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • The film is remarkably oblivious to the fact that if the team weren't hell-bent on a championship, young moviegoers would be significantly less interested in its adventures.

    May 20, 2003
  • It must be said that this movie is sweet and innocent, and that at a certain level it might appeal to younger kids. I doubt if its ambitions reach much beyond that.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • I can understand why these unknown child actors were involved with this movie but as for the grown-ups, all I can figure is that they were each fulfilling some kind of community service obligation.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Steven Brill, who has a small role in the film, constructed the screenplay much as one would put together some of those particleboard bookcases from Ikea.

    fun film that is still a worthy film after all these years. typical disney formula but done with a lot of flair

    The Mighty Ducks may not be the best family film, but for what it is, it's still a film that's enjoyable to watch with your family. For a Disney sports film, this is actually pretty good entertainment. The film is pretty funny and has a pretty decent cast of actors. Of all The Mighty Ducks films, this is the best film. Though this isn't the best sports film, The Mighty Ducks is still a worthwhile sports comedy that is much under appreciated. This is a very entertaining sports comedy, and though it's not as memorable as many other sports comedies, The Mighty Ducks is nonetheless a good film with good laughs. The film could have improved, sure but as a whole this still a very good, underrated film that though not perfect doesn't deserve the flack it has received. The cast is pretty enjoyable and director Stephen Herek directs an effective family film that is far better than most other Disney films that are just plain dumb such as Heavyweights. Emilio Estevez, although not in his best performance (for his best look at The Breakfast Club and Young Guns 1, 2) is good here. I thought this was better than the usual Disney output of mindless, dumb family oriented films, and this is a good film that is quite enjoyable despite its flaws. I enjoyed this, thought it was very amusing and fun to watch. For what it is, The Mighty Ducks is a much underrated family film does deliver a good, entertaining time for the family. Give it a chance and it may surprise you at how good this film really is.
