After being charged for drunk driving, the court orders him to coach a peewee hockey team, the worst in the league, Gordon is at first very reluctant. However, he eventually gains the respect of the kids and teaches them how to win, gaining a sponsor on the way and giving the team the name of The Ducks.

By-the-numbers Disney retread
The writers must have had a copy of “The Bad News Bears” running constantly, because this movie is a direct ripoff of that classic. Unfortunately what you are left with is uninspiring, one from column A, two from column B nonsense. I realize its for kids and it is not meant to have deeper meanings, but it is still too predictable and cutesy.
Don’t Hire Ducksworth, Saver & Gross Law Firm
The Mighty Ducks is an incredible movie, check that, f’n legendary. They named a Pro Hockey Team (NHL or National Hockey League) after the team from the movie. In my eyes this movie is a 10 out of 10. But I do question the reliability of the law firm Gordon Bombay worked at, Ducksworth, Saver & Gross. First off, the guy who runs the Law firm’s name is Mr. Ducksworth, seems slimy. Secondly, Gordon Bombay is a drunk idiot who gets a DUI, for what I believe is the 3rd time, and still somehow has a job. Instead of firing him, they suspend him and force him to coach an awful pee-wee hockey team. YOU ARE A LAW FIRM, WHY WOULD YOU NOT JUST FIRE HIM, makes you question if they know any real laws at all. Anyway, Gordo takes over just a garbage team and slowly turns them around with some great flopping techniques “take the fall, act hurt, get indignant” Rolls off the tongue. So Gordo, in an attempt to kiss up to his moronic boss, M. Ducksworth, he re-names District-5 as The Mighty Ducks. Cute at first, but troublesome in the long run. So, this stupid Law firm, then decides to fire Gordon, after he uses he’s lawyerness (which he should be commended for) to find out the Leagues best player Adam Banks or Banksy, was playing for the wrong team. The awful Hawks, and should be playing for the M. Ducks. Banksy’s dad and the vindictive 60 year old pee-wee hockey coach convince Ducksworth to fire Gord, if he doesn’t allow Banksy to play for the Hawks. Gordy obvious tells them to Quack off and loses his Job. So, in-conclusion, DUI = Slap on the Wrist, follow the rules and guidelines of Pee-wee hockey and act with integrity, you get fired. Also, Gordon is somewhere around 27 years old and he’s already a top Lawyer in the firm, so he’s got to be awesome. But sure, fire him b/c a pee-wee hockey team won’t have the best player. I’d hire any other law firm, one that isn’t swayed by POLITICS!
One plot hole I question. Gordon Bombay going off to play minor league hockey at the end of the movie? That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. According to Hans, he stopped playing hockey at 9 y/o after he cost the Hawks a championship (the only one they lost in a 30 year period, Coach Jack Reilly wishes they would take down that 2nd place banner, and you know what he has a point!) So, no hockey from 9 to 27? I don’t care how much natural talent you have, if you don’t play hockey during that time period, you aren’t going to be good enough to try out for the minor leagues.
Coach Reilly kind of rules, dude is like 60 years old, and to my knowledge, his full time Job is to be a pee-wee coach of the Hawks. He has no problem holding grudges for an insanely stupid amount of time. When he first sees Gordy after 18 years, he makes it a point to indirectly call him a huge failure. All b/c he missed a penalty shot goal, shortly after the 9 y/o lost his father. That’s some Bill Belichick level stuff.
You have to question the refs during the games, they let the Hawks get away with some of the craziest things, those kids should be locked up for the crimes they committed on the ice. When the Ducks were just D-5, no ref should have allowed them on the ice without proper equipment. Stupid Goldberg had tape instead of pads, yep, tape! That is insane, but Goldberg is from Philly and likes the Flyers so that rules. Gerald Gardner, age 11 141 pounds, was wearing a football helmet, like get a grip refs! Terry & Jessie’s Dad didn’t give up his overtime for this!
Couple kewl surprises in this movie. One, Pete from pete and pete is in the movie, nice add. Two, in the end credits, they play an absolute JAM, Winning it All by The Outfield, go listen to it. A+ song. And Lastly, Go Flyers.
