Max is approximately five years older now and is heading off to college with Bobby and PJ and away from his dad Goofy. This makes Goofy really sad and takes you through lots of sentimental scenes which really make you care about him.
Later Goofy is fired from his job and must acquire a college degree to increase his chances to get a new job. From that moment on we get a tremendously entertaining ride through Goofy's time with Max at college.
If you noticed, I wrote much about Goofy. That's one of the minor problems I had with this movie. Max is not a very interesting character in here, he is more like just a college student, but the drama between him and Goofy is just as effective in this movie as in the first one.
An Extremely Goofy Movie actually has more quiet moments than its predecessor, and I am thankful of that, because the first movie some times had too many hyperactive ones if you ask me.
The college X-Games competition, as engaging as it is, made me feel a little mnipulated, because I just felt like it was shouting "you want to go to the x-games" to my face. It could have been more timeless just by changing the name, but if you can look past that you get a good amount of tension and exitement which keeps you wanting to see the outcome. You really want Max and his team to win.
The absence of Roxanne doesn't bother me, because while their flirt in the first movie was cute, I see it as a bolt move from Disney not to make it a "happily ever after"-relationship, but accepting that many youngsters don't have those kinds of relationships.
The problems I have listed are the only ones to keep it from a ten, because I feel that An Extremely Goofy Movie delivers lots of entertainment for both kids and adults.
