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.

Painful to watch
1 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film has a very 'made for TV feel'. I would expect it to be on a public access channel rather than on the big screen. The story is tired and unoriginal. The film has been cursed with troubles with financing and casting (it's been 4 years since completion and still has not been released) and it shows in the quality of script, sound, and production. I could barely sit through this horrible movie. I generally enjoy children's films, but I know a formula when I see it. I expect children will experience a sense of 'deja vu' while viewing it. This film as no respect for its audience or for film as an art. Trust me when I tell you to save your money and see something original and worthwhile.
