Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden dubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys... and a mild-mannered monster with a face only a mother could love.
You may be surprised to discover that the director of the Lethal Weapon movies and scary horror flick The Omen, Richard Donner, also produced and directed this classic children's adventure which, by the way, was written by Donner's screen-wizard friend Steven Spielberg. Then again you may not. The Goonies, like Donner's other movies, is the same story of good versus evil. It has its share of bad guys the Fratelli brothers and their villainous mother, reluctant-hero good guys the Walsh bothers and their gang of friends, and lots of corny one-liners. Like in an old-fashioned Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew plot, the Goonies need to solve a problem: a corrupt corporate developer has bought out their neighborhood and plans to flatten all their homes. Luckily, the beloved gang stumbles on a treasure map. In the hopes of finding the treasure to buy back their houses, the Goonies embark on their quest through underground passages, aboard pirate ships, and behind waterfalls. This swashbuckling and rollicking ride was also a great breeding ground for a couple of child actors who went on to enjoy numerous successes in adulthood: Sean Astin Rudy, Encino Man and Martha Plimpton Pecker, 200 Cigarettes. --Samantha Allen Storey
