This came out in 1995, but I didn't see it until 2021. It's a spin-off of the TV series "Goof Troop", which I've never seen and don't really have any interest in. I suppose I found the movie reasonably amusing or whatever. The story wasn't too bad, but it wasn't all hat good, either. And I didn't particularly care for the songs.

So, Goofy (Bill Farmer) has a teenage son named Max (Jason Marsden), who has a crush on a girl named Roxanne (Kellie Martin). He asks her to attend a party with him, where her friend is going to be showing a TV broadcast of a concert that takes place in Los Angeles, by a singer called Powerline (Tevin Campbell). Roxanne says yes, because she apparently has a crush on Max, too. Unfortunately, Goofy decides to take Max on a cross-country road trip to go to a fishing spot where his father had taken him when he was a boy. Max is very upset about this, and lies to Roxanne that his dad is taking him to perform on stage at the concert. For the early part of the trip, Max is miserable, but eventually he and his dad bond. Oh, and they keep running into Goofy's friend Pete (Jim Cummings) and his son, P.J. (Rob Paulsen), who is Max's best friend, as they're also on a road trip. I don't really want to reveal any more of the plot, but I will say I like the fact that Max ultimately tells Roxanne the truth.

There's a direct to video sequel called "An Extremely Goofy Movie", which I suppose I'd kind of like to see someday.
