Emilio Estevez and the original Ducks are back in this fast-moving comedy starring the most popular hockey team in movie history! After the Ducks win scholarships to a snooty private school, Coach Bombay (Estevez) announces that he's moving on to greener pastures with the Goodwill Games. Shortly after the team arrives at Eden Hall Academy, they inherit a new coach who turns out to be their worst nightmare when he strips Charlie Conway (Joshua Jackson) of his position as captain! Then, with their scholarships on the line, they face their toughest rival -- the 10-time championship varsity team! The Ducks and their opponents engage in a series of hilarious pranks to warm up for their battle on the ice. And in a thrilling and climactic third-period battle, the Ducks must prove why they are called the Mighty Ducks! "The quack attack is back!" (USA Today) -- and D3 will have you and your family cheering!|Coach Gordon Bombay and the Ducks are back in Minneapolis fresh from the victories at the Goodwill Games. They have much to celebrate when they find out they've been given scholarships to the prestigious Eden Hall Academy. Once in the hallowed halls of Eden, however, the Ducks, led by team captain Charlie Conway, lose some of their focus. They become the junior varsity of the Eden Hall Warriors, resist an aggressive new coach, and suffer indignities heaped upon them by the preppy varsity team who resent their coming to the school. Eventually the players bond with their coach and face a final test in an exciting showdown game against the varsity bullies. Even in the face of adversaries twice their size, the Duck spirit prevails. The College of St. Catherine, in St. Paul, Minnesota, doubled for the fictitious Eden Hall Academy. For the film, the crew also completely refurbished the Columbia Ice Arena in Anoka County.

For me, someone who grew up in Minneapolis in the 90s it offers a special treat in the form of a lot of footage of Camp Snoopy at the mall of America, (now gone for the far inferior Nickelodeon Universe), and many of the other locations including the arena and the parking lot where they play street hockey having personal connections the significance for me .
Absolutely love the end sequence 5 on 3 with 2 mins to go. (my two favorites were Banks and Charlie through the trilogy) Adam' save on goal and of course the winning goal by ......
Overall its a movie more about maturation and learning life lessons and I think in the end its a main reason why Bombay is only in briefly. To grow up we have to let go of things and sometimes the people we love ...we have to move on.
There's a lot of disrespect portrayed in this movie towards family, however, Charlie does learn his lesson in the end. I wouldn't personally use this as a family movie because it typifies what is "cool" for teens, and that entails a lot of disrespect towards their parents.
You may find it worth your time, but for me, this is a 1-watch movie.
