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.

A pleasing and entertaining sports film, and one that can be appreciated by a wider audience thanks to its solid writing, and strong performances.

A light-hearted classic kids' sports movie.

Harmless enough, but its schematic retread of a screenplay and its lethargic acting detracts from the unassuming, passable entertainment it might have been.

Very lame ice-hockey flick.

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.

I chose to work as a cashier at a gas station over being an extra in this. I chose wisely.

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.

Those not yet wise to formulaic pablum are likely to enjoy this ice hockey kiddie ensemble comedy. But their older escorts might want to bring a novel and a flashlight, or a Walkman or portable television with earphones.

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.
January 1, 2000
The script by Steven Brill is pure formula and totally predictable. He takes absolutely no chances.

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.

A poorly directed and utterly predictable yarn aimed at the small fry, who will probably be entertained by its simplicity.
