18 June 2004 | jellyneckr
Directed by Stephen Herek [BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE], THE MIGHTY DUCKS was a surprise box office hit in 1992 and was followed by two better sequels and a decent animated series. Although not the best in the trilogy, THE MIGHTY DUCKS is still one of the all-time classics of 1992. Emilio Estevez, in what is his best role to date, plays Gordon Bombay, the coach of The Ducks in this family sports comedy. Estevez, arguably one of the coolest actors of the 1980s and 1990s, is the glue that holds the movie together. Without him, it would be little more than any other cliched sports flick. Thanks to Estevez, the movie is better than expected and worth watching. **1/2

Elden Ratliff, who played Fulton, and Garrette Ratliff Henson, who played Guy, are brothers. Elden had to dye his hair and change his name so he would be cast as Fulton.


Les Averman: The Pete-Meister, Mr. Rabble-Rouser! Passing the puck over to Jessie-Roonie, the Enforcer!
Les Averman: Ouch! That hurt! Oh, it's the Connie-Meister...
Les Averman: ...the Velvet Hammer.


When the Ducks are getting fired up before a game, they start chanting 'quack, quack...'. At the beginning of this, Banks is not wearing a glove, but two seconds later, when he jumps on to the ice, he suddenly has gloves on.

Crazy Credits

In the closing Credits, Joshua Jackson's character 'Charlie Conway' is misspelled and listed as "Charlie Conroy"

Alternate Versions

Two versions of the movie's soundtrack exist (along with two representations of the music list in the credits, usually paired correctly but not always). In one version, when Charlie wins the game with his penalty shot, Queen's "We Are the Champions plays for about 70 seconds, then as the bus drives away and the end credits begin, Queen's "We Will Rock You" starts, followed by "We Are the Champions". In another version, the musical score continues uninterrupted throughout the victory scene, and the end credits have "Winning It All" by The Outfield and then "We Will Rock You". (One version of the song list has Rock and Champions, and the other has Rock and Winning.) The US DVD has the Champions versions on its English, French, and Spanish dubs, although the French credits list Winning. The US Blu-ray has the Winning It All version in both its English soundtrack and credits list. One possibility is that Champions was always intended, but the rights couldn't be set up in time for the theatrical release and were arranged by the home video releases (then in an earnest effort to be faithful to the original release the Blu-ray lost it again).
