The Mighty Ducks is a 1992 sports comedy movie from Walt Disney Pictures, the first film in The Mighty Ducks trilogy. Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) is a successful Minneapolis defense attorney with an overblown ego and an underdeveloped sense of civic responsibility. When a drunk driving arrest saddles him with a community service sentence, the local "District 5" PeeWee hockey team finds itself with a new coach. Bombay's first day on the job is less than pleasing'the kids don't have a practice space, don't have equipment, and don't have any hockey skills! Now it is up to Bombay to turn this loser group into hockey champs, especially when he finds out what the stakes really are: the team's first game will be against the Hawks, Bombay's old team. To save himself from another great embarrassment, as he did not leave the team in a good way, Bombay has to get his new team to shape up and turn into hockey heroes. Though it opened to mixed critical reviews, The Might Ducks was a great commercial success and inspired two sequels, an animated television series, and an NHL team to be named after the film.
