"The Goonies is a smooth mixture of the usual ingredients from Steven Spielberg action movies, made special because of the high-energy performances of the kids who have the adventures." - Roger Ebert
Goonies follows a group of misfit kids as they search for buried treasure in a subterranean cavern. Here they cross the path of lady criminal Mam Gratelli and her outlaw brood. Fortunately, the kids manage to befriend Fratelli's deformed (but soft-hearted) son, who comes to their rescue. The Spielberg influence is most pronounced in the film's prologue and epilogue, when the view is advised that the film's real villians are a group of "Evil Land Developers." The musical score makes excellent use of Max Steinner's main theme from The Adventures of Don Juan, not to mention contributions by the likes of Richard Marx and Cyndi Lauper. Stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, PG, 1985
