Escapist film with average plot & over the top special effects didn't age well at all. Huge wince on stereotypes. Too much flash & too little soul. Even as a teenager I thought it was too cheesy & criminals are not that dumb.

GOOD 1985 Spielberg teen flavor movie - glad I watched it (for first time).

One of my favorite movies as a kid! So great!!

If you want your kids to imagine life in the 1980s, this is your film: Cyndi Lauper music and big glasses and hair. Watching the Rube Goldberg-style inventions and the kids' treasure hunt which turns into an Indiana Jones type of adventure. Now I realize the traps in Indiana Jones were very Rube Goldberg!

Even though this is hailed as a "classic" doesn't mean it's good! In fact it's over rated junk! skip it.

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.

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)
