Picks and Pans Review: A Goofy Movie

UPDATED 04/24/1995 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 04/24/1995 at 01:00 AM EDT


After 63 years of supporting roles and shorts, Goofy, Disney's flap-eared canine cutup, finally gets a full-length feature of his own. Sadly, one cannot say that a star is born.

In A Goofy Movie, Goofy is worried about his son Max, and not just because the teenager is developing Dad's overbite. No, Goofy, a single dad (it's never explained whether Mrs. Goofy has departed due to death or divorce, though Goofy's curiously epicene, doofus personality leads one to suspect the latter), fears that Max has fallen in with a bad crowd. Goofy takes the lad on a fishing trip, hoping to bond over trout. Max has other ideas, boasting to his would-be girlfriend that he and his dad are headed for Los Angeles to join Powerline, a rock star, onstage during a televised concert.

Well, you get the idea. A Goofy Movie is a minor effort aimed squarely at the 5-to 11-year-old set. (G)
