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.

Parent Approved - Great kids movie
16 November 2005 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

I just had the chance to see this heart-warming film and I really liked it. The story really grew on me and the baby goslings in the movie are hilarious and adorable! (There will be lots of laughter in the theater from the baby gosling's flatulence.) Max Morrow's performance as a boy struggling to find happiness after losing his Mom, really tugged at my heartstrings. Chevy Chase as a bumbling chef/principal is in classic form. The movie will keep you interested with lots of humorous talking goose scenes, and the story moves along pretty quick. I wish all movies were 85 minutes long. This as a perfect family film. It's safe for even the littlest ones. Enjoy!
