Movie Details

A little boy attempts to prevent a wisecracking goose from becoming the tastiest dish in a high-profile culinary contest in this live-action, family-oriented comedy starring Chevy Chase and Joan Plowright, and featuring the voice of Dave Foley. Randall the Goose was out on a date with his longtime girlfriend, Etta, when his carefree days of flying over the countryside came to an abrupt end. Snatched up by gourmet cook and Willow Springs Elementary principal Congreve Maddox (Chase), Randall now faces an infernal end in the sweltering confines of a particularly hot oven. Maddox is determined to impress the judges at an upcoming culinary contest, and with a tasty goose like Randall to serve, he can't lose. But the pampered chef is about to meet his match in the form of his taciturn neighbor Will, a young boy who hasn't spoken since the death of his mother just a few months back. Will is the only one who can hear Randall when he speaks, and over time their friendship helps the traumatized youngster to recover his voice. Unfortunately, their friendship may soon come to an end because Maddox is fattening Randall up in preparation for a prestigious cooking competition. Upon realizing this frightening fact, the terrified goose begs his new friend Will to rescue him. Now, with a little help from his father, his precocious younger sister, a beautiful schoolteacher, and even the aspiring chef's own concerned mother, Will hatches a plan to prevent his new best friend from becoming the tastiest dish at the competition. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
