D2, however is one of the few that hold strong with the original Mighty Ducks film. Most of the young stars return in this film, and those who do not are replaced by much more interesting team members, including a bash brother and a hog-tying cowboy.
Emilio Estevez returns as hockey coach Gordon Bombay who's returned to the Ducks after an injury in the minor leagues which has prevented a future in the NHL, although he is quickly back on his feet when he is asked to be the coach for the USA team in the Goodwill games. With the infusion of a few new players, some exciting new drills and a lot of hard work the ducks are back in action and ready to kick some Iceland butt!
A little more silly then the first, but still packs in a lot of fun!
When they get to the Olympics, they face their biggest rival team - last year's championship team from Iceland. They are tough, bigger, faster, and much more competive, especially their coach. The USA team does very well in the beginning, but then they loose to the Iceland team bad. Soon, all Coach Bombay cares about is winning - and the USA team can't stand that! So when they take a day off, they meet up with these street hockey kids who teach them how to really play hockey and what it really takes to be a team. And their spirits suddenly start to grow, especially after Coach Bombay apologizes to them for acting like such a jerk. Finally, it is the championships and they have to face Iceland once again. Do they win? Why, of course!
D2 is much more hilarious than the first, and the kids play more practical jokes and tricks. The hockey games are excellent, even though of course probably most of the hockey players you see on the ice are stunt doubles. Still, a great movie and a must see and a must have if you own and loved the first one! The Quack Attack is back and better than ever!
like to see Scandinavians be defeated in
pseudo-Olympic competions that no longer exist
then you will love D2: The Might Ducks.
After a year of rest and working at Mall of
America, half of the Ducks come back to join
forces with a Magic School Bus-like cross-section
of interracial of hockey players and regional
But even 28 year old Dean Portman and a large-eared
cowboy may not be enough to stop Team Iceland who,
basically, is allowed to cheat.
Even after picking up a black kid from inner city
Los Angeles, can a pre-pubescent racial melange possibly
defeat a eugenically perfected gene pool of aryan
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll never mock skate
So grab some of Han's egg meal and D2 today.
In D2, the Ducks get accepted into the Goodwill Olymipic Games. They get some new players who they aren't getting along with to well in the beginning, but who they sort their differences out with. In the Olympics, they go up against teams from all over the world, but with none are they so competetive than with the favored-to-win team, Iceland.
The coach of the Iceland team is sort of like Coach Riley in D1, but is, I think, more extreme. Coach Bombay has kind of the same "screw up" that he had in D1, but another old man, who is filling Hans' place in his hockey store when the owner is absent, helps Bombay sort things out.
In the end of the movie, Iceland and the U.S are set up in the big final game. Who wins? Well, I can't tell, but it's a great ending.
Summing up, I think that D2 was better than D3, but not as good as The Mighty Ducks.

I love the Mighty Ducks films but this one is my least favorite. I love the whole team USA thing they have going on but it pretty much ripped of the first movie.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
