Two years later she appeared as the daughter of Edwin Booth. She appeared in her first movie, drama of Rocket Gibraltar, after two years in acting. The movie cast includes Burt Lancaster, Kevin Spacey and Macaulay Culkin.
Her sister Sara also had a small part. Later that year she appeared in Heartbreak Hotel, which is a film directed by Chris Columbus about the fictional kidnapping of Elvis Presley. Goethals’s first starring role came in the 1993 TV series Phenom. She played Angela Doolan, a young tennis player struggling with the challenges of life including her single mother (Judith Light), obsessive tennis coach (William Devane) and bratty younger sister (Ashley Johnson).
It ran for 22 episodes before being canceled by network ABC in May 1994. In 1990, Goethals played Linnie, the sister of the main character Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin), in Home Alone. The blockbuster family comedy, directed by Chris Columbus, is about a young boy facing two inept burglars when he’s left home alone. The movie made nearly $500m worldwide. She was one of only three main cast members not to return in the sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, two years later.
Goethals’s next role in a blockbuster movie came in 1996’s Jerry Maguire, a film that starred Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Renée Zellweger.

In 2002 she saw star Polly in Comedy Central’s first original movie, of Porn ‘n Chicken. The movie was based on the true story of the Porn ‘n Chicken Club at Yale University. Its members gathered weekly to eat fried chicken and watch porn. The club made headlines in 2001 when members announced plans to make their own porn film, entitled “The StaXXX”. Despite a trailer being released for their film, it was never finished and no further footage ever emerged. Later in 2002, Goethals also starred in the 1980s based sitcom Do Over. The show featured Penn Badgley as 34-year-old Joel Larsen, catapulted back in time to 1981 and forced to relive his school life. Goethals played his sister, Cheryl.
