I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*
Staring; Sean Astin and Josh Brolin.
Released; 7Th of June, 1985.
Genre; Adventure, Comedy, Family.
After finding out that their parents where loosing their house, and a golf course was going to be built on top of their town, Mikey (Sean Astin) Walsh thinks that there has to be something they can do. So while on a venture up to their attic Mikey, all his friends, and his brother Bran (Josh Brolin) Walsh find a map that says it leads to treasure. So it's decided they would all go on a treasure hunt, well almost decided, Bran didn't like that idea. Mikey then thought it best to just tie Bran up so his friends and him could find this treasure and save their whole town. Off set Mikey, Chunk (Jeff Cohen), Mouth (Corey Feldman), Data (Jonathan Ke Quan), and Sloth (John Matuszak) and on the hunt they ran into the Fratelli family who were know robbers. After Bran and two girls Andy (Kerri Green) and Stef (Martha Plimpton) finds them they join in the search because now with the Fratelli's after them, they have no choice but to run. The find their way through the tunnel and through a series of wacky events, finally make it to the treasure, only to find that the Fratelli's had followed them. But eventually, they get the money and save their town.
Until yesterday I hadn't watched The Goonies in probably five years. It is such a fun movie, though I didn't remember the kids cussing so much. It is such a creative movie. The whole journey on the way to the treasure was awesome, the person who thought up that part of the movie was great. Also I would definitely want to have a friend like Data, so cool! I liked it, I didn't love it. It was a really good movie, but for me it just didn't get to that greatness. There was no huge moment of suspense, not that every movie should have that, or that movies should stick to the formula, as most sadly do, it's just that it wasn't phenomenal.
To sum it up, It was okay, not a must see.
