Setting out to save their homes, the Goonies find a treasure map and set off in search of the treasure of the legendary pirate One-Eyed Willy. This takes them through a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons. The gang race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys also after the treasure, led by the dastardly Momma Fratelli, and a mild-mannered monster with a face only a mother could love.Hide

  • The Goonies, like Gremlins, shows that Spielberg and his directors are absolute masters of how to excite and involve an audience. "E.T." was more like "Close Encounters"; it didn't simply want us to feel, but also to wonder, and to dream. Full Review

  • A rolicking good time is had by all in this adventure that is built on archetypal plot strands that tie together oh so well. Full Review

  • It has crooks, bats, cobwebs, skeletons, a lovable monster, an underground grotto and a treasure hidden by some of the most considerate, clue-loving pirates who ever lived. Their ghostly ship is the movie's piece de resistance. Full Review

  • Territory is typical small town Steven Spielberg; this time set in a coastal community in Oregon. Story is told from the kids' point-of-view and takes a rather long time to be set in motion. Full Review
