An Extremely Goofy Movie
It’s a big time in Max’s life. He’s college bound with his friends and finally free of his embarrassing father as he strives to be a top contender for the X-Games. Unfortunately, Goofy loses his job and learns that he cannot get another job without a college degree. To his son’s mortification, Goofy decides to join him in his campus to get that degree. Desperate to distract his father, Max talks him into joining the competing Gamma Fraternity team and introduces him to a wonderful librarian who shares his nostalgic love for 1970’s pastimes. Unfortunately, things do not go according to plan as events put this father-son relationship to the test.

Skeletors_Hood » First off, ignore the comment made by wileyjp, just a couple down from me. Obviously, though he claims to be a "true Goofy fan," he is quite the opposite. True fans of Goofy will love Goofy in any form, and in any age. He praises the animated shorts that Goofy starred in since the 30's, and hates the idea that Goofy had a girlfriend and a son. Then he never saw the animated shorts where Goofy was married and had a son in the 50's shorts.
Knowing that, the idea of Goofy being a father isn't far fetched. At least he had "a son" instead of nephews, which always puzzled me whenever cartoons were afraid to link any character to a jr version. Instead, we have Huey, Dewey and Louie with Uncle Donald, when it would have made more sense, (and may have been funnier), if he was their dad. I love that Goofy is a father, because he does have a strong sense of family about him, and you can see that Max is his whole world.
The Goofy movies are a great modern story with the timeless Goofy. Though this movie isn't a great as the first, it has the same charm, and the same family connection that the first one conveyed. Anyone can enjoy this movie just as much as the first, and i recommend it to the True Goofy Fans out there.
