The Mighty Ducks (1992)

Director: Stephen Herek
Starring: Emilio Estevez, Joss Ackland, Joshua Jackson
Budget: $10m
Box Office: $51m

Plot: Feel-good underdog antics as Emilio Estevez suffers through community service coaching a hapless Minnesota kids’ hockey team to some sort of glory. He’s a grump who has his heart melted; they’re hopeless but he teaches them to believe in themselves. You know how these things work. It’s a big box of Disney corn, but the little ‘uns loved it.

Mighty Ducks The Movie: The First Face-Off (2013)

Director: Alan Smithee
Starring: James Belushi, Clancy Brown, Tim Curry (voices)

Plot: The first movie ends with Emilio Estevez promising to come back next season and help the kids defend their title. So he did that, in D2: The Mighty Ducks. And then he did it again in, you guessed it, D3: The Mighty Ducks. These films were so successful that they actually led to the creation of a real NHL team (known these days as the Anaheim Ducks), and there was also an animated TV series, which spawned this fourth film, cobbled together from three episodes. It’s set in space, on an ice planet called Puckworld, inhabited by duck-like aliens, for whom hockey is religion and law. Characters included Mallory McMallard, Duke L’Orange and Captain Klegghorn. Star Trek experts Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens were on the writing team. It must have made a change from ghostwriting William Shatner’s Trek novels.

You've obviously never been tortured... not that I have but I can imagine it would be more painful than clicking a button. More

23 Why the clicking?
Why do you think people will click through 40 pages loading? It would be much less annoying to have it as a scrolled list down a few pages. Gave up clicking at 11. Torturous. More
