Throwback Thursday- The Mighty Ducks (1992)

Quack! Quack! Quack!

For a certain generation, this call means only one thing: The Mighty Ducks (1992).

Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) had a bright future in hockey as a young man. After missing the goal during the championship, Gordon lost interest in the sport he loved. Decades later, after being arrested for drunk driving, Gordon’s punishment is to coach a pee wee hockey team. The team has the worst record in the league and Gordon is not so eager to take on the responsibility of coaching.  But it turns out that the team and Gordon are exactly what each other needs to turn their lives around.

For me at least, there is something nostalgic about this movie. The fact that this movie is 23 years old, well, it makes me feel old. But it has a good heart, a solid message about believing in yourself and it is quality family entertainment.

I recommend it.
