Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this father-son road-trip movie contains some chaotic, perilous moments. Max's attitude is less than appreciative for much of the film -- but that's the point. He is going through an awkward phase that Goofy is learning to cope with.
Female characters wear slinky outfits and act seductively. Chaste kiss between teens. Shots of male characters wearing underwear or standing dressed in a towel. Shot of a baby's bare bottom.
Perilous scenes in a car, where Goofy and Max fall off of a cliff into a river. At one point, Max gets so frustrated with a mascot wearing a possum outfit that he punches him in the kisser. Pete bullies his son and encourages Goofy to do the same with Max.
"Butt." Also, Max is interrupted by a bystander when he says the word hell: "My life is a living he¿" "...Hello little buddy."
Goofy and Max are going through a rough patch, typical of adolescence, where trust, patience, respect, and discipline are all shifting borders in a new land. But the bond that they share is stronger than the challenges they withstand.
Disney cross-references pop up. Goofy has a Mickey Mouse telephone, and we see other Disney characters throughout the film. One character is a glutton for "cheddar-cheese whiz," which comes in a very recognizable can.

Pete drinks beer, spitting it onto the TV screen when he sees Goofy and Max featured at a big concert.
