Mighty Ducks was one of the many feel good movies of our generation.It arrived during the golden era of children's sports movies in the 90's and quickly made its way to the top of the list.This was probably one of a kind movie because it was the first time that a children's movie was based on the game of ice hockey.There were many children's sports movies based on various games such as Rookie of the year(1994),The Sandlot(1993),Little Giants(1994) but none of those movies were based on ice hockey.They sure were great movies but none of them could match the success of The Mighty Duck franchise and the devoted/cult following that MD had.It without a doubt left it's mark on the popular sport's culture and pop culture landscapes.Even after 22 years it is still considered by many as one the greatest kids movie of all time.The concept that it brought with itself is still hard to match to this day let alone rebooting the franchise which is what the standard operating procedure of most of the Hollywood producers/directors has been recently.The story line was nothing new but the way it was portrayed was just epic.The casts and crew members of this franchise sure did put in a lot of effort to make this one of the greatest movies of all time.
