D3: The Mighty Ducks

Plot hole: There is no reason that Eden Hall couldn't have accepted the Ducks and also kept some of the JV players as well other than they didn't want to hire more actors for the team. Keep in mind, by the times the Ducks actually attend E.H. they only have 12 players (with two goalies). Once Banks gets transferred to Varsity they only have 9 skaters. Surely they could have allowed the cut JV players to rejoin the team since they barely had enough skaters for 2 full lines.

Continuity mistake: Coach Orion throws the puck at the bulletin board and makes a hole in it, but when he walks out of the locker room, the hole is gone.

Continuity mistake: After the first bash brother "strips" in the penalty box, the next time you see him (5 min later) you see him with all his pads on and everything. They never refer to the fact that he threw his pads into the crowd.

Suggested correction: He only threw his elbow pads and gloves into the crowd. We also can't truly tell if he has full pads on since he never takes his jersey off again.

Other mistake: After Guy gets hurt in the warriors/ducks game, the scoreboard is shown. It says that there is 15 seconds left in the third period, when it is really the second period.

Other mistake: In the final seconds of the Varsity/JV game when Goldberg takes his shot, you can see the ref has already signaled it a goal before the puck went into the net and the goal judge turned the lamp on.

Continuity mistake: When Charlie is chasing Goldberg down the road on his roller blades we see him jump over the car - when he lands you can see him fall over but the shot changes before he completely falls over. This happens when they jump off the bridge too.

Continuity mistake: During the Warriors VS Ducks game, Charlie is driving down the rink and it cuts to a wide shot. You can see the puck is dropped and intercepted by a Warrior. In the next shot, Charlie takes a shot which the Warriors' goalie blocks. Charlie couldn't have gotten the puck back that fast, no matter how good he is.

Continuity mistake: During the second period of the Varsity-JV game, the camera flashes on the scoreboard. It is supposed to be the second period, however, the clock numbers indicate that there are 13 minutes left in the third period.

Continuity mistake: During the outdoor ceremony welcoming the Ducks to Eden Hall, you can see Charlie's "C" in a close-up shot. In a subsequent shot of the group, the "C" has disappeared completely.

Factual error: Throughout the entire Varsity/JV game, the Varsity team makes at least 20 penalties that aren't called. They also refer to a tripping call as hooking, even though the Varsity player obviously goes for the JV players ankles.

Audio problem: Right after the final buzzer, Julie the Cat skates out of the goal and pushes off her helmet, yelling "all right". She's smiling and her lips don't move.

Continuity mistake: When Portman tackles one of the varsity team's player through the glass, his helmet's attachment changes, in the face off, it's different than after the tackle.

Other mistake: When Portman is talking to Cole, the straps for his full face shield are missing, but after he checks Cole into the glass, you can see those straps attached to his helmet and face shield.

Continuity mistake: When Portman is talking to Cole, Portman moves down his left hand twice.

Visible crew/equipment: During the street hockey game when Charlie rejoins the ducks with Bombay, cameramen are rolling around filming amongst the players.

Russ: Hey, Biff. One more thing. After we beat you, the Warriors die and the Ducks fly.
