An Extremely Goofy Movie is a 2000 American direct-to-video animated film made by Walt Disney Pictures. Directed by Douglas McCarthy, it is the sequel to A Goofy Movie, featuring the return of characters from the television series Goof Troop. The story follows Max's freshman year at college, which is compounded by his father's presence when Goofy arrives at the same college to get a degree.

Plot

It is an important time in Max's life, for he is college-bound with his friends P.J. and Bobby. Believing himself to be free of his father, he strives to work together with his friends to become the top team at the college X-Games. Upon arriving, Max quickly gets himself noticed by the "Gamma Mu Mu" fraternity, who are the reigning X-Games champions, in particular their leader, Bradley Uppercrust III. Bradley invites Max to join his fraternity, but Max refuses if he cannot bring his friends along with them. A rivalry starts between Max's team and Bradley's Gammas, and they bet whoever loses in the finals will be towel-boy to the other.

Meanwhile, Goofy does not take Max's leaving well and suffers from empty nest syndrome. His depression causes him to be involved in an accident at his factory job and he is fired. He is downspirited after this event, and misses his son Max. To make things worse, as Goofy dropped out of college after 3 years during the 1970s, he can't get another well-paying job unless he spends one more year to obtain a college degree. To his son's mortification, Goofy joins him on campus to achieve the degree. Desperate to distract his father, Max talks him into pledging the Gammas, which works. Additionally, Goofy meets and befriends the college librarian, Sylvia Marpole, who shares his nostalgic love for the 1970s. Romance soon blossoms between Goofy and Sylvia, and they decided to go for a date that coming Saturday, which becomes a spectacular success with them dominating the dance floor with classic disco.

Although Max is initially supportive of Goofy's "distractions", tensions start to rise between them when Goofy beats Max in the first round during the X-Games qualifiers, though his success is due primarily to cheating by Bradley, who implemented a rocket booster on Goofy's skateboard. After the qualifiers, Max angrily snaps out and yells at Goofy to "Leave me alone and get your own life!!!". Max's rejection causes Goofy to lose his focus, forgetting his date with Sylvia and failing his first midterm. Goofy begins considering to drop out but, after inadvertently getting some advice from Pete, he regains his focus and returns to school. He happily makes up with Sylvia, who then helps him study for his makeup exams, which he passes with straight-A's. Additionally, Goofy decides to quit the Gammas, not wanting to compete with Max at all. The Gammas take this as an insult and literally throw him out. When Goofy re-enters the Gamma house to return his pledge pin, he overhears their plan to cheat in the final X-Games events. Goofy tries to warn Max about this, but Max refuses to believe him.

At the X-Games semi-finals, Bradley and the Gammas repeatedly cheat in various obvious ways, but are not caught, eliminating all the teams besides Max's. Just before the final race is to begin, Bradley activates a rocket mechanism in P.J.'s skates that blasts him away, leaving Max's team with only two players. Without enough teammates, Max and Bobby face disqualification unless they can find a replacement player. Max apologizes to Goofy on the Jumbotron and asks him to join his team; Goofy sees this and gladly accepts. In the final race, one of Bradley's cheating maneuvers backfires (Goofy threw his lucky horseshoe at Bradley's face when he was about to push the button that starts the rocket mechanism on Max's skate board) when a giant wire-and-fabric X-Games logo falls on Tank, one of Bradley's minions. Bradley flees for safety, but Max and Goofy decide to help Tank escape. Despite the setback, Max manages to catch up to Bradley and wins the race by a nose and receives the grand-prize trophy. Bradley shakes hands with Max (showing good sportsmanship) and will become his towel-boy, but Max drops the bet because Bradley has to deal with Tank. Tank then turns on Bradley for ditching him, by sling shot him into the X-games zeppelin.

Once the term is over, Goofy receives his college degree (and the trophy) and leaves Max to his own devices at college. Goofy and Sylvia drive off at a beach, implying that their future will be together.

Cast

  • Bill Farmer - Goofy Goof, Max's father who works at a toy factory. He gets fired, whereupon he decides to go back to college with Max.
  • Jason Marsden - Maximillian Goof, Goofy's son who heads off to college. He and his friends often butt heads with the Gammas. Additionally, Max has to deal with his father coming back to college with him.

He is so intent on winning that he doesn't help his own teammates when they're in trouble, and meets his end when he loses to Max.
  • Jeff Bennett - Unemployment Lady
  • Brad Garrett - Tank, Bradley's right-hand man who ultimately turns on him after the Gammas lose to Goofy and Max.
  • Jim Cummings - Peter Pete

Censorship

When this film aired on the North American Disney Channel and its counterpart channel Toon Disney, the scene where Max and Goofy are saving Tank from the burning "X" logo that fell has been cut out then was left out after the Sept. 11 attacks; Tank, Max, and Goofy are merely shown surviving with no explanation. Another edit is the removal of the ESPN logo from the film (despite the fact the movie was produced and aired by Disney, who owns it), although it still appears during the end credits.

Reception

An Extremely Goofy Movie won the award for "Best Animated Home Video Production" and was nominated for "Best Voice Acting by a Male Performer" at the 28th Annie Awards in 2000.[1] Rotten Tomatoes currently rates the film at 50%.[2]

Max

  • [watching Goofy and Sylvia dance disco] If the Gammas don't keep my dad out of our hair, his new girlfriend will!

Bobby

  • Do you ever wonder why we're always, like.... wearing gloves?

Beret Girl

  • (To Bradley Uppercrust III) Well I’m dizzy right now from watching your downward spiral.
  • (Again, to Bradley) Oh, you slay me, tiger. You are the fly in my soup. You are the eyelash in my eye. You are so busy blowing out bad vibes in every direction that we are all choking on your second-hand smoke!
  • (as the Gammas leave) Now that’s the first time I’ve seen the trash take itself out.
  • Max, Max, Max. Admit defeat, and defeat will surely admit you into permanent custody, my man.

Dialogue

P.J.: [giving directions to the college] Okay dude, uh, south. No wait, that's uh... I dunno, man, do I look like Magellan?
Max: Peej, you couldn't even spell Magellan.
P.J.: Try hanging a Louie. Nononono, that's the other Louie.
Max: Louie, Huey, Dewie, what are you talking about here?
Bobby: [pointing to the map] Yo, it's right here; this way.
Max: Yeah Peej, Bobby's right. Uh, hey Bob, um... Who's driving?

Max: Gentlemen, I welcome you to the first day of the rest of our lives.
Bobby: Wow. That's pretty deep. Did you get that off a bumper sticker?

Bobby: [speaking with a phony French accent] Me and a little crumpet like yourself could make beautiful bongo music together.
Beret Girl: Whoa, easy boy. You’re fogging up my karma.
Max: Hey, you wanna sit with us?
Beret Girl: Sure. Your cool balances out [snaps fingers] his fool.
Bobby: Okay, whatever...

P.J.: It is endemic of the current culture that those with large stature are overlooked-except by vultures-with no regard to the depth of their souls, the height of their passion, the beauty of their moments.
Beret Girl: Oh, wise Buddha boy. How could anyone overlook such a bundle of yes-ness? Let’s dance. [yanks P.J. out onto the dance floor by the arm]

Goofy: Oh, Sylvia, I…oh, if you’ll let me I…
Sylvia: Shh! No talking in the library.
Goofy: Oh, gawrsh, Sylvia. I really care about you.
Sylvia: Well gee. If a certain someone truly cared about another someone, you would think that the certain someone would show up for a certain special dinner, or at least apologize for not showing up, or even call or…something!
Goofy: Oh, you’re right. I’m so sorry. I let my head get so filled up with fiddle-faddle that I plumb lost track of everything that’s important to me- countin’ you. Can you ever forgive me?
Sylvia: [After a moment] Oh, how can I not forgive you?
