The Goonies

Here is a little bit of innocuous fun presented by Steven Spielberg and directed by the great Richard Donner. This one has it all, pirates, gold, mutants, traps, jail breaks, car name's in here. Includes the feature film debuts of Josh Brolion and futue hobbit Sean Astin as well as some fine acting from Corey Feldman and even Ke Huy Quan, that annoying little tit from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and later show up as a martial arts consultant for the X-MEN films. Rounding the cast out are the bumbling villians portrayed by Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano and their mom portrayed by the late and great Anne Ramsey who really is quite a menacing presence here. Look for Cyndi Lauper in a video tie-in cameo and director Donner himself as a police officer. This is one of those feel good kiddie ensemble action flicks for the whole family to enjoy...I recommend ice cream!
