The Mighty Ducks

Character mistake: When Coach Bombay has the Ducks practice passing eggs to each other, he tells them "Concentration, not strength." At the end of the movie, when the Ducks say goodbye to Bombay, Fulton Reed repeats this advice to Bombay, but he gets it backwards. Fulton says "Remember: strength, not concentration."

Suggested correction: He said it backwards on purpose. During the game against the Huskies Guy repeated the advice to Fulton to help him with his shot accuracy, however it didn't quite work so Fulton just used his strength rather than concentrating. Hence, the reason he stated the advice in reverse to Gordon at the end.

Continuity mistake: In the championship game, Banks gets knocked out of the game when he is checked into the goal post. If you look at the action after he's gone, you can still see Banks in some of the action. You can't see his face, but you can see his number 99 playing in some scenes.

Trivia: When Gordon and Charlie's mom are looking at the ice sculptures, watch the people in the background near the end of the scene. Just as Charlie's mom starts to walk away, a woman in a beige hooded coat pauses, makes a circling motion in front of her face then points at the sculptures. What she's doing is saying "It's beautiful" in American Sign Language.
