"The Mighty Ducks. Perhaps the best live-action series that has been put out by Disney to date. In this, the third movie in the series we see the Ducks receive scholarships to the prestigious Eden Hall Academy. At the same time, Coach Bombay has decided to move on and will be partaking in the Goodwill Games. In going to Eden Hall, the team acquires a new coach who is not as pleasant as Coach Bombay was. In fact, he could be best described as a nightmare. At the same time the Ducks bump heads with the championship varsity team. In the end the two square off in an excellent game of hockey. Leading up to the game, many of the typical hyjinks take place. Aside from the Ducks having their scholarhips on the line and other set-backs, the exchange of pranks between the two teams is simply classic. In the climatic third-period of the game the Ducks will have to prove why they are that quack-tastic. Will they do it?? I can't say, but D3 is a movie you don't want to miss. Disney has done it again with another great movie that anyone in the family can enjoy, so pick up today as you won't be disappointed."
Even none-hockey lovers will love "D3: The Mighty Ducks"!

"First off, I must say this, I've never seen the first two Mighty Ducks movies and I'm not especially a hockey lover. But I must confess I thought this movie was terrific and fun! Mostly aimed for teenagers, this is a great movie to watch! The whole team "Mighty Ducks" have won scholarships to prestigious Eden Hall: Charlie (Joshua Jackson), Goldberg (Shaun Weiss), Fulton (Elden Henson), Averman (Matt Doherty), Julie 'the Cat' (Colombe Jacobsen-Derstine), Russ (Kenan Thompson), Dwayne (Ty O'Neal), Luis (Mike Vitar), Ken (Justin Wong), Guy Germaine (Garette Ratliff Henson), Connie (Marguerite Moreau), and Adam (Vincent Larusso). But there are some changes for the team. First of all, one of the 'Basher Brothers' Dean Portman (Aaron Lohr) is not going to join them. But most important, their coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) won't be coaching them anymore. Charlie can't accept that and even more can't accept their seemingly harsh new coach, Ted Orion (Jeffrey Nordling). The 'Mighty Ducks' have a big game ahead of them against the Varsity team 'Warriors' who are going to be hard to beat. Will they be able to beat them and show them who's the best? With plenty of suspense and humor, "D3: The Mighty Ducks" is certainly worth the watch. Terrific acting done by the whole cast, including the notable actor Joss Ackland who plays Hans, the good friend and mentor to the 'Ducks'. The suspense during the hockey games were sometimes pretty intense, especially the last game between the 'Ducks' and the 'Warriors'. As for the humor, the movie was hilarious, I was laughing most of the time! A few of my favorites parts are when the 'Ducks' play pranks on the Varsity team and when Bombay gives his little 'speech' to the board members of Eden Hall. And a few of my favorite lines is:Cheerleader: Cheerleaders only. Are you a cheerleader?
Linda: Do I look like an idiot? Connie: This ninja stuff makes you look, I don't know, how would you say...
Guy Germaine: Ruggedly handsome?
Connie: Amazingly stupid. Dwayne (while swinging a lariat at one of the Varsity members): It would be more fun for me if you ran. For parents, the movie is rated PG for the reason that there are some bad words sprinkled here and there. Other than that and the game of hockey being pretty rough, it's pretty good! I can't wait to watch the first two movies! I hope they're as good as the third one! If you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend it!"
BEST ONE YET!

"The movies did have the same plot, but the director and the perfect cast made all three movies turn out great. Aaron Lohr looks great in the penalty box. I don't like hockey that much ( not including high school), but these movies made watching hockey a little more fun. The pranks the Varsity and Ducks played on each other were phat!"

"Ok after D2 coach Bombay stops coaching the Ducks because he is still in charge of the junior division.Then the recurring Ducks(everyone except for Jesse Jackson from the original and 2nd mighty ducks)come back to hopefully reform the Ducks with the only Coach they ever knew.Well soon they find out that Coach Bombay is not going to be in charge and then they are sent to an stuck up private school on an free scholarship.Well here's the introduction for the setting of the movie......but you'll have to see the rest.Oh yeah,Quack,Quack,QuackQuack......for the Mighty Ducks like you've never seen them before!Quack!"
