Willy (Matthew Knight) has a unique concern regarding his family's new house: he firmly believes it's inhabited by malevolent space aliens. Luckily for Willy, his wish for a savior is fulfilled with the entrance of Gooby (voiced by Robbie Coltrane), a strange but lovable creature who appears more anxious about the world's dangers than he is. As the unlikely pair become friends, Gooby helps Willy and his father reunite. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Its lack of a compelling storyline and overreliance on so-so slapstick will limit its appeal to easily distracted preschoolers."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Entertaining for kids while slightly corny and silly for adults, but it's often harmless, bighearted and filled with inspirational messages about friendship, hope and the importance of family which everyone, young and old, can appreciate."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"If being innocuous were a crime, Gooby would cause Canada to reinstate the death penalty pronto."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"Instead of inspiring children to be brave and loving, it will most likely send them cowering under the covers in terror. They've already got Chucky movies for that."
‑ Loey Lockerby, Kansas City Star
"This should be, by all accounts, a horror movie. It is instead a Canadian family comedy. So, you know, same difference."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
