Sequel to popular kids' comedy 'The Mighty Ducks Are the Champions', with Emilio Estevez reprising his role as the ice-hockey coach Gordon Bombay. This time around, the action takes place at the Junior Goodwill Games in LA, as Bombay is invited to lead Team USA to victory over the favourites Iceland, whilst also having to cope with the distractions of an enveloping media circus.
This follow-up to the surprise Disney hit about a hockey team of misfits brings Emilio Estevez back to the role of the kids' yuppie coach. This time, Estevez assimilates his Ducks into the higher-stakes Team USA in the Junior Goodwill Games, an opportunity that could bring fame and money. Entirely perfunctory, this sequel is basically an excuse to revisit the eccentricities of some of the younger characters, extend some of their conflicts into adolescence and showcase their allegedly entertaining but ethically dubious abilities on the ice. Estevez is okay but even he had enough after this movie. --Tom Keogh
