A Great End To A Great Disney Sports Series

Rating:

This Disney film made me much happier than D2 did. I really enjoyed the way it was much more true to the first film than D2 was. This movie used examples from the first film ("He's been the captain since they played in District 5," the announcer utters during the first game.) This time, the team is shy one member (Jesse) but it really seems no different. I do still wonder what happened to all those people who played in the first movie and were never heard from again. Oh well.

In this film, it's almost a rehash of the first film. A team who cannot get it together, get a washed up hockey player who they hate to coach them and they love him...your basic family fun, Disney flick.

All in all this was a great movie, but hopefully Disney realizes that we've had enough.

*** out of ****
