A chaotic action-fantasy with a talented young cast, The Goonies is the ultimate 1980s kids’ movie—and it’s just as enjoyable 35 years later.

Written by both Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg and featuring a sprightly cast of well-known faces—notably Sean Astin and Josh Brolin—this beloved film ticks all the boxes for the perfect family adventure. Pirate treasure? Check. Evil land developers? Check...

The Goonies delivers a chaotic action-fantasy made excellent through its talented young ensemble and dynamic direction from Richard Donner. There’s something here for everyone to enjoy! Just remember: ‘Goonies never say die!’
