    I have this joke about The Mighty Ducks. Whenever someone asks me to describe a film, I'll say, for example, it's Mamma Mia meets Leverage meets The Mighty Ducks. I always put The Mighty Ducks in there, as many movies have an underdog element anyway. (If the movie is pre-1992, I use The Bad News Bears instead.) But see, I'd never actually SEEN IT. Not that I haven't seen the formula, because it is a very formulaic movie, and it definitely didn't invent its formula. It's The Bad News Bears with hockey, or Slap Shot with kids, but it's a large percentage of every sports movie ever made. We might question whether handing a bunch of Peewees to someone convicted of a DUI is a good idea, but it's otherwise acceptable family fare, with a good lesson about sportsmanship, and a few fun strategies on the ice. I just can't believe these kids grow up to be an NHL team... 2 years 3 months ago
