Corrected entry: The tournament is a double elimination tournament, as you hear the announcer saying, but Iceland and the Mighty Ducks still play each other in the championship, even though they both lost one game. This is not possible, because in double-elimination, there will always be one team in the finals that is undefeated. (To win the championship, the undefeated team either beats the team with one loss, or the team with one loss has to win back-to-back games).
Corrected entry: When Gordon Bombay calls his team to the bench to apologize for not being there for them, during the game against Germany, he doesn't call for a timeout. Team USA would've been assessed a 2 minute penalty for delay of game.
Corrected entry: When an Iceland player crashes into the goalie and the puck supposedly goes in the net for a goal, when the camera switches to the overhead shot there is no puck going into the net.
Corrected entry: When Gordon walks into the locker room for practice (which Ms. McKay cancels) there are hockey pucks set next to each other on the players stools in front of their lockers. In the next shot where Ms. McKay tells Gordon she has cancelled practice, the pucks are stacked on top of each other.
Corrected entry: After the first loss to Iceland, Bombay makes team USA do Sprints right after the game. This is a reference to the 1980 USA Olympic Team that lost to their biggest rivals by a big amount and had to do Sprints right after as well.
Corrected entry: For a major sporting event such as the Junior Goodwill Games, USA would not pick one team who won state finals as their national team, give or take a few players. For an event like this, there would have been national tryouts.
Corrected entry: During Team USA's second game against Iceland, the flying V fails and the announcer says there's a "four on none breakaway" for Iceland. But you can see that all five Iceland players are bearing down on Goldberg with no USA players to stop them.
Corrected entry: In a shootout you aren't allowed to stop because once you stop you are done, so Fulton's goal and Gunner's shot would not have counted.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of Team USA's first game against Iceland, Banks gets the puck after Goldberg makes a save, and the announcer says "Captain Adam Banks" has the puck. But Adam isn't the captain; Charlie is.
Corrected entry: In one of the first scenes, where the Ducks get their new outfits and are training, Karp's uniform actually has his name spelt wrong on his shirt. It is spelt "CARP" instead of "KARP", but then in the next scene and for the remainder of the movie, the uniform reads "KARP".
Corrected entry: When Dwayne left the bench to rope the Icelandic player, in addition to the 2 minutes he got for "roping", he should've been assessed with a game misconduct penalty for leaving the bench.
Corrected entry: In the final shootout scene, when the final duck player is on his breakaway, you will notice, as the camera view shifts from the player, to the goalie, to the fans and whatever else, the player changes from a lefty to a righty several times.
Corrected entry: It is stated that Dwayne is from Austin, Texas. Austin is very urban, yet Dwayne goes on about cows and chickens etc... and he is sharp with a lasso. They make it seem as though he lives on a farm. Is it me or is he just a bad example of a Texan stereotype?
Corrected entry: There is no possible way that within the 30 second time-out the ducks took, to have what "goldberg" and "russ" do, which was switch pads. There is no way that "russ" could've put on the leg pads, blocker, glove, and other pads in 30 seconds.
Corrected entry: The Ducks have their press conference at the Coliseum, they hang out in Beverly Hills, Bombay is staying in Malibu, and the team's practices and games are in Anaheim. These locations are MILES apart; it would take Bombay over an hour to get from his rented house to practice. Not very good planning on Hendrix Hockey's part.Krista
Russ Tyler: Hey, yo, Team U.S.A., what you gonna do today, a million jumpin' jacks?
Portman: Man, this kid's crazier than me. Just forget him.
Jesse: Man, I'm gettin' sick of you.
Russ Tyler: And I'm getting sick of seeing the U.S.A. represented by a bunch of whining babies.
Jesse: Well, too bad you can't back up that mouth.
