The premise is, of course, silly and unlikely, but the film still manages to pack an emotional punch at the right moments. As a family-friendly sports film, it mostly succeeds.

I can't believe they made an entire franchise from this movie.

"The Mighty Ducks" is basically "The Bad News Bears" on ice. It is about "Attorney Gordon Bombay" who is made to coach a Pee Wee Hockey team by the Minnesota Court System after being convicted of DWI.
The jokes in this movie are very campy and childish. Some of them make you laugh, but many others make you groan. Most of the jokes do not work.

The limo driver assigned to drive "Bombay" was not well presented. He was just there and unnecessary.
This movie did balance the relationship of "Bombay" and the fatherless "Mighty Duck", "Charlie Conway" and "Bombay's" relationship with the rest of the team pretty well, but I would have like to have seen more of the Coach/Team …
