D2: The Mighty Ducks
When we covered the first Mighty Ducks two years ago, we acknowledged that there was a pretty strong consensus that D2 was the superior film. It had also been at least twenty years since any of us had seen this movie. So it was time to find out how well this one held up to a more objective viewing and whether or not this is indeed the high water mark of the series.
Topics include: why we liked this one better as kids, the missing Ducks that no one even mentions, why 60% of Team USA being made up of ONE team from Minnesota is a little bonkers, a really simple change that would have prevented the plot from essentially being a retread of the first one, Jan's dark backstory, why a third installment was always going to feel underwhelming, and much more!
