Product Description

Even as Disney has reveled in the success of its high-end animated features, it occasionally sneaks a lesser effort into theaters, based on one of the many TV shows with which it dominates daytime TV. This one is based on perennial Disney favorite Goofy's adventures in domesticated bliss. Goofy is now a single dad; when son Max gets blamed for a prank gone wrong at school, Goofy blames himself and decides that, for his vacation, he's going to get away with Max alone. Of course, this is no treat for Max, who has just met the girl of his dreams and harbors no wish to spend the summer touring America with his square dad. The vacation is one disaster after another, though they aren't particularly funny disasters; the culmination involves Goofy's efforts to get Max backstage at a big rock concert. Strictly for young fans of the TV show. --Marshall Fine

Customer Reviews:

  • Goofy Movie Fun For All ages
    The Goofy Movie is a great addition to any home collection. Goofy and his son Max go on a trip full of fun, music and laughs. On the way to some of Goofy's favorite places they run into some very humorous adventures that bring them closer as father and son. It is a great movie with excellent music that keeps you humming even after it is over. My daughter and I have watched this movie numerous times and we still love it. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good laugh and great songs....more info
  • Why no widescreen?
    I won't give a summary of the movie (many reviews have already done that) but I will say this. Why no widescreen? I believe the Region 2 version of this DVD got a widescreen presentation (though I'm not sure if it was enhanced for 16X9 televisions...), but why do the people stuck with Region 1 DVD players get stuck with the full screen version? I've seen the widescreen edition and it looks much better! The full screen version just looks like the sides got chopped off... the scenes feel a bit cramped. Aside from that flaw, this is a great DVD and worth buying, or at least renting. It also has an episode of Goof Troop as a bonus feature and a few other bonus features too. 4 stars only because of the absent widescreen version. Otherwise the movie is worth 5 stars, I just wish to see it in its original aspect ratio. :(...more info

  • Good Honest Storytelling.
    Well this movie came to a big suprise. I'll admit it, I'm 20 years old, and I LOVE this movie. Most family films tend to have shallow scripts, and mindless slapstick that are just meant to entertain insted of entrall, this movie is so much better than that. This movie illustrates best how unconfortable it can sometimes be to grow up when you're a teenager. And, most importantly, this movie shows us a honest story about the relationship between a father and a teenage son. Like in all good stories, the characters in this movie go on a physical and mental journey. Honest situations and true-to-life characters (other than the fact that they are talking dogs) make this very enjoyable.

    Unfortunately the DVD is almost featureless, and doesn't even have widescreen.

    It claimes to reccomended for all ages, and it's right. This is truely something everyone can enjoy. Most Highly Reccomended....more info

  • Great movie, but not-so-great DVD
    Since this is one of my favorite Disney movies, I decided to get the DVD and see if it was worth the money, but unfortunatley it wasn't. One of the biggest problems with the DVD is that the film is not presented in its original aspect ratio. Another problem is the special features included. Out of all the stuff included, I was expecting a "making of" featurette, but Disney was too lazy to include it, not to mention one was already made back during the film's release and aired on the Disney Channel. Everything else seems ok, the VHS version of this movie is probably two times better. In other words, this is a great film, but the DVD is simlpy stupid....more info
  • Surprisingly Great Movie
    Amazon's in house reviewer above said "strictly for young fans." No, this is also for any adult who loves animation. I didn't like Goofy until i saw this movie. But I loved the way they wrapped a clever-thoughtful guy inside the awkward exterior. It gave me a new perspective.

    I'll admit a couple of the songs were a bit painful, but there are so many great gags and great sequences in this story I couldn't help but be impressed. This is way better than some of the high-budget princess movies Disney was grinding out at the same time. And this was done by Disney's second string animators... wow!

    It's a road movie, it's a buddy movie, it's a teen romance movie, it's a father-son movie, it's a whacky neighbor movie, it's a satire movie, it's a musical movie... all rolled into one....more info
  • One of the best Disney movies ever!
    I don't know how many times I must've seen this movie, but it's probably the one I've watched the most out of all of 'em!
    You just can't resist watching this movie that is for all ages. Especially if you're a teen, you can understand what it's like having to deal with a parent who just wants to do what's best for you, but you just want to be left alone.
    It's a great family movie, about a vacation gone wrong, but when you think it was bad, it actually turned out good.
    It has great catchy music, the plot thickens, it's a great kids movie that you can watch over and over and over again.
    Buy it now, you won't be disappointed, after all we all love cartoons, especially Disney!...more info
  • Great for the Whole family!
    The very first time I saw this movie was while I was on a baby sitting job. The kids kept insisting we watch "goofy movie! goofy movie!" at first I was like "Oh great, another little kids movie..." but from the very beginning of the movie I was laughing. This is a great movie!

    Six years had past since then and I hadn't seen it in a while until it came on the Disney Channel. Upon seeing it again I knew I had to own the movie.

    The plot is sweet, and though Max shows obvious resentment towards his fathers "goofy-ness" and the obvious effect it has on him too, you get the sense that he really does love his father, he just forgot how to show it.

    I give the movie a 5, because I value family relationships over and above ANYthing else in a movie. Sure it was funny, but the family qualities in this movie are great.

  • Great for teens as well as younger viewers
    The editorial review says that the movie is strictly for young kids-- don't believe it. I'm 14 years old and A Goofy Movie is still one of my favorite movies. I truly think this is the best Disney movie that has ever been made. The songs are catchy, the storyline is something most teens can identify with, and the level of animation is excellent, as is the voice acting. Why this movie wasn't a bigger hit than it was is beyond me....more info
  • love it!
    I love this movie, I watch it with or without my kids. its so cute, it always puts me in a good mood!...more info
  • A Goofy Movie
    My daughter who is 3 1/2 years old almost 4 years old LOVES GOOFY, she will watch this movie over and over again, except she was getting alittle sassy from some of the scenes, so we had to stop watching it for a little bit. It is a cute show and as she gets older there are some good lessons in the movie....more info
  • The best Disney movie ever!
    I have seen almost every Disney movie, but this is one of the best movies ever!(The sequal I didn't like, it had nothing to do with this one.) I can't beleive this isn't a Disney classic! Anyway, the songs are catchy, and some scenes still make me laugh so hard! A very good movie for young kids, teenagers as well as adults....more info
  • Excellent 'Goofy' movie, for what it's meant to be...
    Had this movie been made as a full fledge addition to Disney's classic library, this would not do. But just as a pleasent revisit to one of Disney's all time great characters, it better than O.K.

    The movie deals with a story that I'm sure most sons and dads can relate to, the seperation that begins as the son grows and wants more independence. Max, Goofy's son, has a crush on a girl but a recent event at school leads Goofy to believe that he hasn't been paying much attention to his son. So Goofy plans a road trip for the summer, much to Max's dismay. But before they leave, Max lies to his friends by saying that he is going to L.A to a concert of a popular singer. When Goofy puts Max in charge of the map, he deceives his father by re-routing their trip through L.A., so he can be popular in the eys of his girl

    The movie is well done, no contrived story or anything like that. Had it been inducted into the "Disney Classic" library, a lot more work would have needed to be done as far as quality goes.

    The DVD unfortunately, does not present the film in it's original aspect ratio, but does make up for it by including two Goofy Cartoons, each about 20 mins. The first one is recent, "Calling All Goofs" dealing with a Goof family reunion. And the second one is vintage with Goofy helping Donald and Mickey escape from their angry (and unpaid) landlord....more info

  • Still A Great Movie
    I watched this movie when I was probably 13 and loved it then, and after watching it after I bought it I still love it now that I'm older. It's a classic, and it's hilarious....more info
  • I love this movie!
    A Goofy Movie is cool! The songs are only beat by the songs in "The Lion King".

    In case you're wondering, here's what the movie is all about:
    Max is Goofy's 15-year-old son. He's not exactly the biggest man on campus.
    On the last day of school, Max decides this calls for desperate measures. He performs a concert at the morning assembly as teenage rock sensation, Powerline.
    Everything works out fine...until the principal finds out.
    The principal calls Goofy at work and tells him Max is headed for the electric chair.
    A horrified Goofy takes Max on a road trip. Poor Max has just gotten the date of a lifetime.
    Max tells his girlfriend that Goofy is taking him to Powerline's concert in L.A. (which he's not).

    Don't miss this movie! It's one of the lesser-known classics.
    I give it two thumbs up....more info

  • Goofy Gets Goofier!!
    In this delightful tale, Max tries to impress a girl, but everything goes horribly wrong and he gets kicked out of school. Horrified that Max was suspended, Goofy feels like a failure and takes Max on a cross country trip to make up for it. But of course Max is less than impressed, and must somehow make it to a concert that isn't near Goofy's fishing lake to surprise his dreamgirl. This movie has some of the best music, animation, and comedy that Disney can dish out. Very recommended for all families....more info
  • Wonderfully Funny
    This was a great movie for a great price. A "feel good family movie" for everyone....more info
  • A Very Good Movie
    I don't know how this one got by me. We always go see all Disney animated movies in the theatre. I don't think it played very long or was only shown at selected times of the day. Whatever! All in all this was really a pleasant surprise. It was great fun. It was funny. Underneath it all it is a good story of a dad learning about his son and visa versa. The generation gap lives on and will continue to live on and that really is part of life and living. I really liked this movie....more info
  • Freakin Awesome!!!
    Man this movie is one of the best movies ever made. I am so glad that Disney made it. It always makes me feel better and plus it has the best song in the world on it. It is "Stand Out!" It relates exactly to me!!!...more info
  • Good solid business
    good, fast service. came as described. Would do business with this vendor again....more info
  • Who's your favorite possum?
    The title of my review is one of the most memorable quotes (to me, at least) in this movie. Maybe I won't remember the plot 20 years later, but I'll be able to shout "Who's your favorite possum?!" at my sister and she can respond, "Lester!" It was an amusment park (looked kinda like a tavern) that Goofy and Max went to on their 'trip'. I like the song they sing in the beginning when they are in a car.

  • A Great movie!
    Wow, this is truly one of my favorite movies and fave Disney fliks ever, i am a disney lover.

    This is about Goofy's son " Max" who wants to impress his girlfriend " Roxanne" by going to a special concert in Los Angeles played by his favorite sinfger " Powerline" ( who is sort of like a Goofy version of Prince), unknown to Goofy, Goof is actually taking Max on a fishing trip but Max decides to change everything so that he can impress her.

    A highly entertaining, heartwarming and meaningful animated feature full of laughs, insight gags, good animation, great soundtrack and a important lesson about Fathers and Son.

    If you're a disney fan, i suggest owning this movie on DVD and you won't be disappointed :)...more info

  • Love it!
    A Goofy movie is the best movie of all time! The first time I saw this movie was when i was in the 4th grade and I used to watch it over and over and over because I loved the characters and I especially loved the songs! I'm a Sophomore in Highschool now and I just watched the movie again for the first time in a couple of years and I still love everything about it! I want the soundtrack for christmas now! heehee! Bye bye

  • Simply hilarious! A road trip you won't forget!
    "A Goofy Movie" is one of my absolute favorite videos. I've been marveling over this movie for years. Everytime I watch this film, I can't stop myself from laughing. The funny scenes never get old. The story is about a young boy named Max, who is Goofy's only son. Max throws a somewhat sort of concert at his school meeting and steams up the principal. The prinipal calls up Goofy and completely exagerates Max's skit. So then Goofy decides to take his unwilling son, who just finally got a date with the girl of his dreams, on a fishing trip crosscountry. To make a long story short, everything that could poosibly go wrong does, and Max isn't quite getting along with his dad. Goofy and Max eventually fall off of a huge waterfall before they finally realize that they really love each other. But I'm not going to spoil the ending for you. You'll just have to watch and find out, and I guarantee you that you won't regret it!...more info
  • The coolest Disney movie around!
    I first saw this movie when I was in 4th. grade. My babysitter had it first, but her kids are older and they don't watch it anymore. I watched it two times in a row in one day and fell in love with it! My babsitter asked if I wanted it. I sayed you bet I do! I love the addictive songs and the catchy music! I have the soundtrack too. It's about an uncool teenager, Max (voiced by Jason Marsden) who wants to act cool. But it's hard for him to act cool when his dad is "Goofy." (voiced by Bill Farmer) Everyone in his highschool always laughs at him because his dad always kisses him in front of everyone, and he falls over sometimes. But Max really likes this one girl, Roxanne. (voiced by Kelly Martin) Roxanne doesn't think he's goofy or wierd at all. But Max isn't so sure how to make her like him-except on the last day of school he thinks up a plan with his two buddies. So in front of the whole school he impresses her by doing a dance to his favorite music by the coolest rockstar on the planet, Powerline. (voiced by Tevin Campbell) After that he has to go to the principals office. Roxanne tells him she liked his dance. So they make plans to go to this Powerline party. Then the principal exagerates what Max did to his dad. Then Max finds out his dad wants him to go on vacation with him! He tells Roxanne a lie that he's actually going to the Powerline Concert instead of telling her he's going on vacation with his dad. I won't tell you anymore about the movie or I'll give the movie suprises away! This is a must have!!!!!!...more info
  • One of My Favorites
    I first saw this movie in theaters when I was about 10, but now, 5 years later, I still love it! This story is about Max, a teenage boy who doesn't really fit in, and Goofy, his dad. When Max pulls an outragous stunt to get a girl he has a crush on to notice him, it works! Max gets invited to watch the Powerline (a rock star) concert on tv with her. But when he gets home, Goofy surprises him with a father-son fishing trip across the country. The story tells about Max, his relationship with his father, and his desprate struggle to impress Roxanne. The original music is amazing and the stroyline is interesting and well done. It makes a great gift for any child or anyone who is a child-at-heart....more info
  • "MAX-I-MUM ~ It's The Goof Boy!"
    The wonderfully hilarious animated film `A Goofy Movie' was released in '95 minus all the fanfare that generally accompanies a Walt Disney Production. It is definitely one of the lesser known amongst all the great Disney features, but it happens to be one of my personal favorites. Join Goofy (a.k.a.: Mr. Goof) and his son Max on their madcap vacation trip as they drive across the country on a father/son bonding venture.

    Who could ever forget Max's Powerline imitation, Bobby's "Tower of Chessa", Lester's Possum Park, Bigfoot dancing to "Staying Alive" or the lovely and demure Roxanne. This little gem of a film is an unforgettable adventure that will be enjoyed by the inner Goofy in all of us.

    Well constructed storyline, infectious music, lots of funny sequences and quotable lines of dialogue. Buy this one, multiple viewings recommended....more info
  • second greatest movie ever!
    I first decided to watch this movie because I heard that Jason Marsden (who is the cutest and most talented actor ever!) did the voice of Goofy's teenage son Max. But my best friend and I soon found ourselves watching it twice in a row and singing along with all of the catchy tunes (yes, I'm aware that sounds stupid) and reciting our favorite lines. I also saw the sequel (X-tremely Goofy Movie) and loved it as well. This movie was hilarious and is Disney's greatest accomplishment because it's a movie that both kids and parents can relate to. Next to one of Jason's other movies, "White Squall" (1996) this is the greatest movie I've ever seen. I'm going to buy the soundtrack and a copy of the movie itself. The cast did a brilliant job, the writers should be seriously congratulated, and the songs were terrific. This movie is outstanding and definitely deserves more than 5 stars....more info
  • Good Honest Storytelling.
    Well this movie came to a big suprise. I'll admit it, I'm 20 years old, and I LOVE this movie. Most family films tend to have shallow scripts, and mindless slapstick that are just meant to entertain insted of entrall, this movie is so much better than that. This movie illustrates best how unconfortable it can sometimes be to grow up when you're a teenager. And, most importantly, this movie shows us a honest story about the relationship between a father and a teenage son. Like in all good stories, the characters in this movie go on a physical and mental journey. Honest situations and true-to-life characters (other than the fact that they are talking dogs) make this very enjoyable.

    Unfortunately the DVD is almost featureless, and doesn't even have widescreen.

    It claimes to reccomended for all ages, and it's right. This is truely something everyone can enjoy. Most Highly Reccomended....more info

  • Surprizingly awesome
    I had forgotten how awesome this movie is- even for a grown-up, like me. It could do without all the songs (it was made before Disney wisely decided to ditch all the cheesy singing,) but it's brisk, double-layered humor more than makes up for it. Kids will think the gags are sufficiently silly. Adults will pick up on the nearly-sarcastic, nearly risque dialog, so rare in Disney animated movies. Plus, Big Foot dancing to 'Stayin' Alive' is just freaking hilarious.

    Basically, it's just a Disney movie. But it's a *great (and severely under appreciated) Disney movie....more info
  • My Favorite Animated Disney Movie
    I used to watch this on VHS with my sisters when we were younger. We watched it in the theaters and then forced our parents to buy us our own copy, which we watched all the time. I purchased this DVD last year and I STILL love it 12 years after its initial release.

    I definitely thought this movie was funnier when I was a kid, but even now I think it's just as enjoyable as it was then. I love the songs-- we used to sing along when we were younger. I even bought the soundtrack!

    And I have to admit, I think that this is one of Disney's best animated features. Better than The Emperor's New Groove (which I also loved), and even any of their computer animated offerings, including The Incredibles and definitely better than the awful Cars. ...more info
  • A definite classic
    I used to watch the VHS copy of this with my son when he was very little. Now that he is 13 we still enjoy watching this movie. It has a great story and is very funny. A lot of parents could learn how to be a better parent by watching this movie....more info
  • A good Disney movie
    My 3 year old son loves this movie. He first saw it at his daycare, so I had to get it for him. There's music, singing and "goofy" things going on amidst a good father/son story. The only thing I found a little off-putting is the reference to the "electric chair" . Try explaining that to your kids. So far, my son hasn't asked......more info
  • First cartoon movie that I can remember that appealed to adults.
    I remember seeing this movie in the theater when I was a little girl. This movie was GREAT! Before this, Disney movie were generally for little kids and that was it. This was the first that appealed to adults. This was almost like a Jr/high school cartoon. There were a lot of sterotype high school kids in the movie. The soundtract was also great. I had a lot of catchy tunes....more info
  • Another Childhood Favorite!!!
    Ever since I was 5, I've loved this movie! I haven't watched it in years, and I saw it on tv yesterday and was a good way to refresh my memory. On the last day of school, Max Goof tries to impress Roxanne, a girl he likes. When he makes a fool of himself dressed as Powerline, a famous rock star, his dad takes him on a vacation. Goofy takes Max to weird places, but Max needs to get to the Powerline concert in L.A. to impress Roxanne again. Throughout the film, Max and Goofy get into fights because Max wants to live his own life. I love the part where Bigfoot dances to the Stayin' Alive song! I highly recommend A GOOFY MOVIE!!!...more info
