The Quack Attack is back, Jack! It’s hard to believe that the beloved Mighty Ducks franchise turns 20 years old this week. The Disney series inspired millions, and even lead to the creation of a real life team. It also inspired countless children to strap sharp blades on their feet and wave big sticks around on ice. That part didn’t always end so well. And finally, the sequel inspired us to be terrified of Iceland for a time thanks to the scary villainous team.
It’s amazing how many actors got their start in the movie rink. If you watch the movies now you see a tinnnnnny Joshua Jackson as little Charlie Conway. He’s so cute, we wonder if his current GF Diane Kruger makes him watch it with her on date nights. There’s also a pre-Nickelodeon Kenan Thompson and Danny Tamberelli. And of course Marguerite Moreau stole our 8-year-old hearts as the butt-kicking Connie. Yeah, she was the one who uttered the immortal “I’m not a lady, I’m a duck!” And to be honest, we forgot what a heart-throb Emilio Estevez was as Coach Gordon Bombay. Head to the gallery below and catch up with you MD favorites, twenty years later. Do it with us now: Quack quack quack!

And we were all like, Emilioooo! According to Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen is doing much better. Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a different guy. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a completely different guy,Ã¢â‚¬Â Emilio told Access Hollywood. Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got his voice back. And I think heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got his focus. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on a new show and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gonna be roasted by Comedy Central Ã¢â‚¬â€œ which I think is going to be hysterical. I think that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really got it together. And heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very excited about the crew of the show heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s putting together.Ã¢â‚¬Â On the flip side, both Charlie Sheen’s roast and Anger Management sitcom are going to be way less entertaining of the man’s just sitting there quietly, drinking green tea and filling out his I-9.
Despite his personal motto involving ducks and how they all fly together, Estevez had some harsh words for his brother in the past, comparing him to Fredo in The Godfather: Part II and joking, “There are times, like these, when I want to take Charlie out for a boat ride.” At the end of the day, though, these two have the same warlock blood flowing through their veins. And in Charlie’s case, let’s hope that’s it.
Emilio Estevez has some harsh things to say about his brother Charlie Sheen at the moment, given Sheen’s recent behavior. Estevez compared his family to the Corleones in The Godfather, specifically the moment Michael Corleone has his brother Fredo killed.
“There’s that thing in The Godfather: Part II of ‘I love you, Fredo, you’re my brother, but don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family,'” Estevez says. “Then Michael Corleone has to have Fredo ‘taken out’ on the boat. There are times, like these, when I want to take Charlie out for a boat ride. Charlie should know that he might have a boat ride in the future. Someone’s got to be Michael Corleone.” We’re sure he’d shoot him out of love, though, it’s all out of LOVE. Just like when Sheen shot Kelly Preston that time. That was out of love, too.
Before Estevez resorts to murder, he’s still optimistic that Sheen will get out of this mess he’s in. Estevez says, “There’s always hope, and there are so many examples of people pulling themselves out of the s— and having a rebirth. So you just pray for him and hope he has that moment of clarity.” Fingers crossed that moment of clarity comes soon, this winning warlock stuff is getting exhausting.

The five stars of The Breakfast Club reunited this weekend for a John Hughes tribute in New York City. Hughes’ death of a heart attack just over one year ago left us a little shaken – even though the teens in his films were a few years older than us, they depicted adolescence in a way we haven’t seen since, and we’re Hughes disciples of the highest order. Not to mention the fact that his trio of high school films, The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, and Sixteen Candles, marked the genesis of The Brat Pack, the group of young actors including Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, who were known for starring – and partying – together during the mid 1980s.
So whatever happened to the Brat Pack? Some of them, like Robert Downey, Jr., have found more success now than ever, and others, like say, Mare Winningham, found that their star burned out before it even got to shine. More often than not though, after a dark period called the 1990s, these actors reemerged and found success on television and in movies and most importantly, on Twitter. Journey with us to a land of prom, record stores and fancy cars and see what became of them…
Common folk eat up comparisons to their famous look-a-like, but what about celebrities themselves? Via makeup, plastic surgery, and sheer coincidence, duplicates of our beloved stars are running rampant all over Hollywood, or in Lady Gaga‘s case, gracing our currency. Here are 20 of our favorite, unrelated, doppelgangin’ celebs. [Photos: Getty Images]
