I liked this movie as a kid, but watching it again as an adult I realized how much of a kids' movie it really is. The story is full of holes. 300-year old pirate waterslides? The water isn't freezing cold? The pirate ship still sails? Who's sailing the ship? A better ending would've been: the Fratelis touch One-eye Willy's gold, triggering the cave to collapse, burying everyone except the Goonies and Sloth who escape.

A classic film...very funny and ridiculous! It's great to see Josh Brolin, Sean Austin and others as such little kids.

One of my favourites! Now my kids are old enough to enjoy it too! Great family movie - humour, mystery and adventure for all to enjoy. Some scary scenes, so not for the littlest ones.

Oct 10, 2012

The Goonies, a group of friends living in the "Goon Docks" neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon, face foreclosure on their families' homes from the expanding Astoria Country Club. On one of their last days their morale sinks particularly low due to Mikey's older brother having failed his driver's license exam, thwarting their plans to "cruise the coast in style" during their "last Goonies weekend." While rummaging through the Walshes' attic, they find an old newspaper clipping, a Spanish map, and an artifact relating to a rumor of a lost but not forgotten pirate treasure somewhere in the area. Hearing the call of adventure, Mikey tries to persuade his friends to join him in search for the treasure hoarded by a pirate named One-Eyed Willie. Initially reluctant, the group eventually decides to evade the authority of Mikey's older brother, Brandon, and escape for one last "Goonie adventure." (Excerpt from the Goonies Wikipedia page)
