Storyline

A modern day fable, Goose! tells the tale of Randall, a neurotic talking goose, who is kidnapped by Congreve Maddox, the principal of the local elementary school. Maddox plans to fatten up Randall so that he can cook the bird and enter him in a culinary contest in Banff, Canada. But Randall has a savior in eleven-year-old Will Donnelly, a sweet and sensitive boy who stopped speaking after the death of his mother. Will and Randall meet and immediately become best friends - they share a love of butterscotch candies and rude noises. With Randall's help (the goose does consider himself the Sigmund Freud of the goose world), Will begins talking again. Will then becomes determined to prevent his pal from ending up as a side of foie gras. Together with his sister, Emily, and some classmates, Will hatches a plot: They'll kidnap Congreve's mother and arrange a hostage exchange for the goose. When that plan lays a goose egg, Will comes up with an even bolder rescue attempt, enlisting the aid of... Written by Voice Pictures Inc.

Fun, family viewing.
3 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Goose on the Loose" is a sensitive and touching children's fantasy story of a young boy, Will played by Max Morrow, coping with a loss of his Mother. Through the magic of a real Goose, an animatronic goose and a gaggle of unruly gosling puppets, Will befriends Randall who is about to be fattened up and cooked by the local school principal (Chevy Chase) as his recipe of choice in a gastronomic competition. Will realizes that Randall is doomed unless…… a master plan is set in motion to rescue Randall. Wonderful cast of children and adults including Joan Plowright, James Purefoy, Kari Matchett and Isobel Fink as Wills older sister. A funny, inspiring comedy for all the family to watch.
