Product Description

Now you can enjoy all the outrageous fun and laughter of Disney's most legendary comedian as he stars in his very own full-length motion picture! In the great tradition of quality Disney animation, A GOOFY MOVIE is a classic blend of irresistible characters, unforgettable music, and an endearing modern-day story about how the lovable Goof bonds with his teenage son, Max, on a hilarious cross-country road trip. En route to the ol' fishing hole, they find themselves up to their floppy ears in misadventure! Will Max learn there's nothing wrong with taking after dear old dad ... if he is a little goofy? The question is answered in the showstopping finale when Max and Goofy "crash the stage" at the most spectacular rock concert ever performed! Filled with action-packed scenes, narrow escapes -- even a comic close encounter with Bigfoot -- Disney's critically acclaimed hit comedy is a delightfully memorable adventure your family will love taking again and again!

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

  • who doesn't like goofy
    My son wanted this move since the first time he saw it at a friends house. We looked everywhere for it and couldn't find it, but we found it here. He watches it over and over, and spends the entire time laughing his little head off. This is a must have for kids....more info
  • A classic for any kid born in the 80s
    And I don't see any reason why anyone born after that would not love the movie.

    Would be nice to have a more expansive DVD Disney....more info
  • One of Disney's Best!
    On the last day of school before summer vacation, Goofy's teenage son Max plans to interrupt an assembly with a song and dance number to win the attention of the girl of his dreams, Roxanne. Emulating his pop-star hero, Powerline, Max pulls off the stunt long enough to gain major popularity points with his peers and get the date he was hoping for, but not without landing himself in the principal's office to boot. A phone call to his dad instantly foils Max's plans for a summer of love, as Goofy becomes convinced that he needs to spend some quality time with his son. Before he can escape, Max is whisked away on a cross-country road trip to Goofy's favorite fishing spot, but he manages to squeeze in one last talk with Roxanne on the way. Unfortunately, in a final effort to keep Roxanne from finding another date to her friend Stacey's concert watching party, Max promises to wave to her from the stage when he and his dad join Powerline in the final number! Suddenly, he's told the biggest lie of his life and has no idea how to get out of it. When Max decides to alter Goofy's treasured family map halfway through the trip and head them towards the concert in L.A., he finally starts to have a good time, but at what price?

    "A Goofy Movie" was a surprise gem from Disney in 1995 that surely would have made Walt proud! The writing and animation are top notch, with a completely original, believable, hilarious and charming father/son story expanding on the popular "Goof Troop" TV series from 1992. In this bigscreen feature, Max and his friend P.J. have moved on to high school, and Pete is still around to cause trouble for Goofy with his nasty demeanor and awful advice. Absent with no explanation, however, are Pete's wife Peg and small daughter, Pistol, and both Goofy and Pete now work as baby photographers in a retail store. The characters are just as we remember them though, and looking better than ever, only the older Max is now voiced by James Marsden. But don't worry if you never watched "Goof Troop" back in the day. This movie completely stands on its own feet as a solid and highly entertaining story of its own, and Goofy (Bill Farmer) and Pete (Jim Cummings) are not much different than they were in their classic Disney shorts. Some major new characters are created for the film too, like Pauly Shore's Bobby, a high school friend of Max and P.J.'s, and the adorable Roxanne, voiced by the equally adorable Kellie Martin. The film boasts some excellent original songs too, and just about all the goofy fun you can handle!

    The Gold Collection DVD of "A Goofy Movie" is so close to being outstanding that it's a real shame they missed the mark by making it fullscreen only! Other than that, it is surprisingly generous with extras (for a Disney release), especially considering the quality of those extras. The two most notable are "Calling All Goofs", an episode of the TV series "Goof Troop" billed on this DVD as a "Max and Goofy Cartoon" and omitting the opening song, and "A Goofy Success Story", which is a wonderful episode of the old Disney anthology series in full color and introduced by Walt that tells the tale of how Goofy was discovered in Hollywood by talent scouts and became the award winning star he is today! That second program includes four classic Disney shorts edited to fit the context of the story, but more importantly, it includes a large amount of charming new (at the time) animation to tell the behind the scenes story of Goofy's success. In addition to those two excellent extras, the DVD includes the theatrical trailer, a trivia game, and a read-along story of the movie that may seem pointless to us but would be great if you have young children. Though, an original story might have been better than just a read-along version of the film. Truthfully, I suppose it would also have been nice to have some more extras relating to the film itself, like character design art (especially for Roxanne) and a behind the scenes featurette, but with "A Goofy Success Story" and an entire episode of Goof Troop, it's pretty tough to complain about anything other than that fullscreen presentation. Fullscreen or not though, this film is a must own! If you don't have it, I highly recommend it! For the Goofy fan, the extras alone make it a worthy purchase! I also highly recommend the direct-to-video sequel, "An Extremely Goofy Movie." Yeah, it's lower budget, but it is far better than your average Disney direct-to-video sequel. And, seek out Walt Disney Treasures: The Complete Goofy if you don't have it already. I just wish they would hurry-up and release Sport Goofy in "Soccermania" to DVD already, not to mention "Goof Troop" in volume sets like they have for Duck Tales, Tale Spin, Gummi Bears, and Rescue Rangers. I suppose The Wuzzles should come first though. Disney, are you listening?...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 the top 5 Disney movies and an almost perfect dvd.
    A Goofy Movie is one of my top 5 Disney animated movies of all time. Hands down. It's almost never mentioned by uppity film critics, a lot of people that like Disney usually forget it, and it isn't exactly a masterpiece like Snow White, but it definately holds its own. I watched it back when it came out, and I loved it. Remembering this, I saw it sitting on a shelf at the store and decided to give it another shot to see if it stood the test of time and my being 20 now. It did. If anything, it only got better. Before The Incredibles, there was another Disney film that brought families close together. And that, was A Goofy Movie, believe it or not. Go ahead and laugh, because I wouldn't believe it if someone told me that too. Goofy, bringing families closer together? Blasphemy! But it's not. Goofy is a great character for this kind of movie about a teenager growing distant from his dad. While it's a good one for families, it's even better if you're a single dad with a son. While I'm a month late in saying this, it's also a very good Father's Day movie if you two can sit back and enjoy "just" a cartoon.

    We start out with Max, Goofy's son. He's dreaming about a girl he has a crush on, Roxanne. It's ruined before they kiss, when he starts to turn into his dad. Huge teeth, feet, hands, ears, everything. He wakes up, and panics once more- he's overslept and he's almost late for a little surprise at school. His dad busts in and embarasses him already, showing up with a towel wrapped around his body and one on his head too while Max is getting dressed. Not a good start for the last day of school. Max makes it and gets together with PJ and Bobby (a new character voiced by Pauly Shore. He acts just like him too). They throw together a huge stage performance where Max imitates Powerline, a pop star in the Goof world, and everyone in the school goes nuts. It comes to a halt when the principal interrupts, and the three friends get into big trouble. Unfortunately, he calls each of their parents at a bad time- Pete (PJ's dad) is giving Goofy a speech about how Max could join a gang or get into even worse trouble if Goofy doesn't start being a little harder on him. Goofy takes the call from the principal as a little wake up call, and makes plans to go on a trip to a fishing spot he and his dad went on ages ago. Well, Max had impressed Roxanne with that onstage risk, and they were going to go to an after-grad party together. The trip gets in the way, and he lies to her, saying he's going to see Powerline live since he knows him. Goofy and Max hit the road to what Goofy thinks is a fun fishing trip and time to bond with his son, but it's anything but. The two argue, stop talking to eachother for a period of time, get into huge danger in the woods and in a river, and more. I'm sure every parent with a teenager can relate to most of what goes on here.

    Now, even just barely out of my teenage years, this movie really hits me. How Max treats his dad from time to time made me resent him, but also made me realize that we've all done something like that. Leaving in the middle of what's supposed to be a fun place because you think it's dumb...you can see the pain on Goofy's face when Max does this. And what makes it hurt the viewer is that it's Goofy- a character who's always upbeat and happy. Watching him get sad actually made me tear up. What's worse is when he and Max run into a mishap involving a waterfall. Eventhough I know how it's going to end, I wanted Goofy to be alright. See? This is just an animated character. But you get attatched to him after all he goes through. But now I'm making the movie sound depressing. Aside from a few moments like the ones I've mentioned, the movie's funny overall, and kids age 11+ will be sure to get a few laughs out of it. Bigfoot discovering disco music has to be one of these things.

    The visual quality didn't get the best treatment here, but I'm hoping a Platinum Edition is in the works somewhere down the line. There's notable grain and smudges one the print, and it looks like a slightly cleaned up vhs version. But the movie was made in the mid-late 90's, so it still looks pretty good animation-wise. No jagged lines here. And the audio's nice and loud. The Powerline songs at the beginning and end are booming all over the place. Some sound effects are a tad quiet, like Goofy and Max stay at the underwater-themed hotel, but it's nothing you'll mind unless you're listening for things like this.

    Here's the reason it gets four stars instead of five. While I was surprised when I went to the special features menu, and discovered some that were actually good, there weren't enough. I remember seeing some concept designs for Big Foot and a few other characters way back when, and it would've been nice to have had them here in some sort of gallery. Also, it would've been nice if Disney had given it as equally great extras as some other Gold Classic Classic discs. But what's here's still good. The first one I have to mention is an entire episode of the classic Disney Afternoon cartoon: Goof Troop. It's the "Calling All Goofs" episode in which a few of Goofy's relatives are having a reunion. Because Pete screws up Goofy's car, he can't go. So instead, Peg (Pete's sultry wife) has the reunion at their house. Of course, we all know how Pete is around Goofy. How will he handle more than one at the same time? It's pure chaos. Unfortunately, the transfer to dvd wasn't kind to the episode, and there are a lot of visual problems here and there (some images jump around instead of smoothly moving. Keep focused on a character when they're doing something, and you'll notice it). It's a funny episode still, and I was surprised to be laughing at it well over ten years after it first aired. It was nice seeing the whole crew, sans Chainsaw. Next, is the biggest extra of the batch- A Goofy Success Story, running over 40 minutes. It covers how Goofy became a household name. It goes well into his past, and is a must-see for classic Disney fans and animation fans in general. After this is the embarassing A Goofy Movie dvd Storybook. If you remember those books on tape...with books included of Disney movies from the 90's, that's what this is...only you watch it. There's the option of having it read to you, in which the narrator sounds like he's talking to kids with ADD. This is actually worth a laugh, if only for what pictures they chose for each page. The first 3 had me holding my sides (go ahead an' say I'm immature. I don't care). What's almost as bad is the Disney Mambo No. 5 by Lou Bega. It's Mambo No. 5...but with some changes for a family audience and a Disney theme. What's somewhat sick is that he goes over pairings for characters. Like Mickey = Minnie, Donald = Daisy. But then he gets to Pluto, who in turn gets Huey, Louie and Dewy. Horrid. There's also a lame trivia game and the usual trailer to round things out.

    That's all there is to it. Get A Goofy Movie. Don't even rent it, just buy it. We're never going to get another one like this. Not from Disney anyway at the rate they're going....more info
  • Goofy Movie

  • 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
  • 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
  • A Goofy Movie
    Product was just as described. Came quickly and was in mint condition. I would buy from this seller again....more info
  • A Sustained Work of Goofy-Dom ...
    The trick in most Goofy titles, is that the schtick needs to be paced. The cartoons allowed for a frenetic pace which was often offset by another characters style. Well, this movie succeeds in sustaining the style of Goofy, with a story that has a cast of many other funny characters.
    For a Franco-American co-production, it does ( for me ) come as a surprise that this has been achieved. However, the answer lies in the traditional animation style, and a strong script.
    Bill Farmer's voice work is totally awesome in this film, as in the Casper series, and he captures the reinvented Goofy that came to screens with the series developed around or after the success of DUCK TALES.
    Stylistically, the Characters were re-done for the "modern" audience, and unfortunately were part of the Disney downgrade of the style of drawing that has led to the cessation of traditional animation methods. The problem I have with this is not the shift to a totally computer generated form, but that the style as evinced by people like the Masterful Carl Barks, but that for all the high tech gadgets that Disney has its command, it cannot do the simple thing of copy the classic style.
    Fortunately, A GOOFY MOVIE maintains the high visual standards, but is one of a limited number of films that led up to dross like TWICE UPON A CHRISTMAS.
    The gags in this film are brilliant; case in point, Big Foots Dance sequence as the backdrop to a moving scene with Max and Goofy... its clearly a reference for Adults, since the music and the Dance sequence is so 70's. And the entire movie combines classic Goofy material together with contemporary references, in such a manner that the style of the Saturday Cartoon series that featured Goofy, Max , Pete, and etc, is emulated very well.
    Totally worth it for the fan of Goofy and the cartoon series of the 90s....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
  • I think I love it more than my kids do!!
    I think that I love this movie more than my kids do!!

    I find myself singing along with the songs, and The story is very heartwarming. I relate to poor Max and his exasperation at some of his father's goofiness...I remember the days when I was mortified to be seen in public with my Parents!!

    I loved it so much I went out and got the sequel "An extremely Goofy movie" and I was so sad to see that it did not live up to the original...no catchy music!! The music in the first one is the best part!! I was very dissapointed.

    You will love this movie not only for the Music, but also for the lessons that it teaches your children about family. I have found a favorite for a lifetime!!...more info

  • Absolutely a classic!
    This is hands down one of Disney's best lesser known and lesser mentioned classics. As everyone else has given a pretty good description of the movie, I wanted to say that this is a wonderful movie that has stood the test of time. This is a film that anyone can see and take away a great lesson. I first saw this when I was very young and I took on the viewpoint of Max. When I had small children, I understood a little more. Now, that I have teenagers, there is so much much more...I really enjoyed the second film and the Disney series Goof Troop but A Goofy Movie will always hold a special place in my families heart....more info
  • Very Fun movie

  • The best Disney movie ever made!
    Well, I don't like the original Disney movies because I outgrew them. I use to watch this movie a lot when I was in middle school and now I'm 23 and I still enjoy it. I think it's so funny. I enjoy some Disney movies like Aladdin, The Lion King, and Pinocchio but this one is far the best a lot better than the Goofy cartoons. I use to watch the Goof cartoons a lot everyday after school when I was very lil and when I heard that they made a movie out of it I was happy to hear that and it was the movie was awesome. I watched the sequel to A Goofy Movie and it was okay but the first one is really the best. You will enjoy it if your a Goofy fan. ...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
  • 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

  • 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
  • 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
  • One of Disney's Best!
    On the last day of school before summer vacation, Goofy's teenage son Max plans to interrupt an assembly with a song and dance number to win the attention of the girl of his dreams, Roxanne. Emulating his pop-star hero, Powerline, Max pulls off the stunt long enough to gain major popularity points with his peers and get the date he was hoping for, but not without landing himself in the principal's office to boot. A phone call to his dad instantly foils Max's plans for a summer of love, as Goofy becomes convinced that he needs to spend some quality time with his son. Before he can escape, Max is whisked away on a cross-country road trip to Goofy's favorite fishing spot, but he manages to squeeze in one last talk with Roxanne on the way. Unfortunately, in a final effort to keep Roxanne from finding another date to her friend Stacey's concert watching party, Max promises to wave to her from the stage when he and his dad join Powerline in the final number! Suddenly, he's told the biggest lie of his life and has no idea how to get out of it. When Max decides to alter Goofy's treasured family map halfway through the trip and head them towards the concert in L.A., he finally starts to have a good time, but at what price?

I just wish they would hurry-up and release Sport Goofy in "Soccermania" to DVD already, not to mention "Goof Troop" in volume sets like they have for Duck Tales, Tale Spin, Gummi Bears, and Rescue Rangers. I suppose The Wuzzles should come first though. Disney, are you listening?...more info

  • I can never get enough!
    This is a great movie! I'm 19 and I've watched it over a dozen times. My parents got me the VHS when I was in sixth grade, I lost it and now bought the DVD. It has a fun feel to it, full of good humor for adults and kids, and a wonderful father-son story that makes me laugh and cry. Though not quite as epic as other Disney movies, this one is my personal favorite. I love the music as well, you can tell they put a lot of hard work into making this film and it paid off. Five stars. Spectacular....more info

  • 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
  • A Great Disney Movie!!!
    "A Goofy Movie" is one of my very favorite Disney movies, if not my very favorite. I watched it for the first time on video when I was a 4th grader, and loved it. Then I forgot about it for awhile, until I found it on the shelf at the Library last year (I'm now 15) and loved it just as much (or more!) as the first time I viewed it!! I can not get enough of it! My older brother, who will be going to a prestegious University in the Fall also loves it as well. Do not listen to the so-called "professionals" when they say it is a "lesser disney movie" and only for the young - because my older brother, my mom and I like it more than even my 6 year old brother!!

    Max (voiced by Jason Marsden) is an uncool teenager who despertly wants the attention of his crush, Roxanne, but seems to mess us when he tries to talk to her. So, on the last day of school with the help of his 2 buddies, he pulls a ABSOLUTLY hillarious and awesome stunt to impress her in front of the whole school -(this is one of my favorite scenes!!)-, but he gets caught by the Principle who exagerates what Max did to Max's dad. Even though he thinks he messed it up by getting caught, he goes from a nobody, to popular because he made the last day of school assembly awesome. Roxanne comes up to him, and they make plans for a upcoming party. He feels ontop of the world but comes home to devasting news - his dad (Goofy voiced by Bill Farmer) who is well-meaning but very goofy feels that taking Max on a LONG road trip to a lake with him will shape him up by having them bond more.

    Max, extremely upset, has to change his plans with Roxanne. But he lies to her telling her he will appear at the Powerline Concert dancing on stage and will wave to her while she watches it at the party. (Powerline is like what Justin Timberlake is today) Max and Goofy set off on the trip with hillarious adventours and mishaps along the way. The end is spitacluar, (something any teen would want to do) hillarious, absoutly GREAT! (I consider the ending scene also one of the best parts!!)

    Everything in the movie fits very well together, guarenteed to make you laugh ATLEAST once ~ many more for me that is for sure! The songs are very catchy and one of the best assests to the movie! I tried to get the orginial soundtrack but I can't find it anywhere. The sequel is funny, but is NOTHING compared to the first. I rank "A Goofy Movie" right up there with Disney's Robin Hood and all the other classics! A must see for EVERYONE kids, teens and adults!!...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
  • 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
  • Great movie because it reminds me....
    this movie was one of the greatest because it reminds me of when mike was still a loser and rossler was still with the good guys and he was a resident evil freak. he used to be like girls are nasty and icky but then he transformed into a beast like in beauty and the beast for not surviving himself i dont understand what is going on in this world everyone is turning evil and bad i really dont understand its like armageddon am i right and it was when i had my chance to make it big as a successor and a world's inspired preacher but it was not meant to be as i am just a mear teacher just like KRS ONE it reminds me of when i was a young lad around 9 or 11 years old and mike used to love this movie and was watching it all the time and mike said i know 2+2 and he said i know how to spell OFF. it is O-F-F. but now hes disgracing the teacher who is me and is spiting at the one who created him. and he used to like cybiko and all that and he liked amanda bynes and was watching her every morning on channel 6 on nickelodeon and he liked ren and stimpy but now he is a monster and is infected with the G Virus which is bad...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
