A Goofy Movie

FREE SCREENING!

G, 80 minutes

Taking the beloved character of Goofy and throwing him into the middle of a father-son cringe comedy that has also been called one of the great black nerd films of the 90s, 1995’s A GOOFY MOVIE holds up shockingly well. Though Goofy (inexplicably named George P. Goof in this film, like that explains something) means well, his amiable cluelessness and klutzy pratfalls regularly embarrass his kinda honestly cool adolescent son, Max. When Max’s prank on his high-school principal finally gets his longtime crush, Roxanne, to notice him, he asks her on a date. But when Goofy gets worried about his wild son, he exerts his paternal control by bringing him on a cross-country fishing trip, including a stopover at a definitely disturbing low-rent possum-themed amusement park and an accidental meeting with the legendary Bigfoot. But Max has plans to ixnay on the fishing and hit the stage at a Powerline concert. Genuinely funny, moving, and featuring great 90s R&B by Tevin Campbell, the Art screens A GOOFY MOVIE for free on Weds, Aug 30! (1995, Kevin Lima, US, 80 min)
