Greatest Experience Ever
on May 21, 2012
I loved "The Mighty Ducks" as a kid, and I love it now in my mid 20s. In fact, the only thing I love more than "The Mighty Ducks" is "D2: The Mighty Ducks," so needless to say I was very excited to finally purchase this three pack and fill a gaping hole in my movie collection. The day arrived: the UPS man knocked on the door and I bounded down the stairs like a child on Christmas morning to greet him. He handed me the package and I could immediately tell there was a problem. One of the DVDs was broken, rattling around in its case. "Please don't be D2, please don't be D2, please don't be D2."
I kept my composure long enough to say "So long" to the delivery man then walked back into my kitchen, my heart pounding in my chest, my hands shaking. I opened the package, taking care not to do any further damage. One by one I took the DVDs out of the box and inspected them. That's when I received the greatest news ever. D1 and D2 were in perfect condition. D3 was the broken one.
"But how is that good news?" you might ask.
As I'm sure you know (assuming you've seen the movies), D3 is the biggest piece of crap ever made. It's like the red-headed step child of the trilogy and has no business being associated with the other two masterpieces. First of all, the premise is just ridiculous. I'm all for suspending disbelief when I watch a movie, but come on. I mean, Team USA wins gold at the Jr Goodwill Games, and then next year they're all relegated to the JV squad at Eden Hall Academy?!?! I'm sorry, I just can't buy that.
But I digress. This is not an occasion for anger. No, this is cause for a celebration. Now I can just throw out the D3 DVD and I won't have to quickly skip by it in shame when I'm perusing my collection. In fact I think I'm going to take it a step further. As soon as I finish writing this review I'm going to take the D3 DVD outside and bash it to pieces with my hockey stick. It will only take about two minutes; but I assure you, fellow Mighty Ducks fans, it will most certainly be two minutes well worth it.
