This can't compete with A Goofy Movie, for sure. A Goofy Movie had a lot of memorable original songs, and although the music is great in this movie, it's not original music-- it's a bunch of pop/disco-y type of songs from maybe the 60s or 70s, not Disneylike really. But don't get me wrong-- this is a very good movie! It's got its sad moments, its funny moments. I really like it.
In this cute film made by Disney, youngsters will learn the meaning of that growing up doesn't mean you live your own life. Freshman college student Max, Goofy's son, goes off to college, therefore depressing his father too much. Goofy will eventually lose his job. In order to get a better job, Goofy goes back to college with his own son! Max is humiliated by his father and that splits those two apart, especially during the College X Games. Children will learn that no matter how old you are, you will always be your parents' son/daughter, which is a very important life lesson. Positive messages are sent out; you kind of have to read between the lines. Finally there are positive role models, such as Goofy, because he always loved his son, even though Max gets hard on his dad. In conclusion, An Extremely Goofy Movie is great for all ages.
