The Goonies Still a Great Movie


Last night while waiting for my husband to watch what we had on the DVR from Monday night I was flicking through the channels. I do this a lot. Not just on the TV but also in the car. I can't help myself. Anyway I came across The Goonies on some cable channel. Honestly can't remember which one there are just so many. Needless to say I stopped on it and couldn't stop laughing. It was right at the beginning where Data comes flying through the screen door using one of his crazy inventions. Then they are getting ready to move out and the mother hires a Spanish speaking housekeeper to help her get things ready. She is unable to speak Spanish so she asks one of the boys, Mouth, to help translate. He tells her all kinds of crazy things and my daughter and I just couldn't stop laughing. I'm telling you it is just such a great movie. I remember going to see it twice in the theater when it first came out in the 80's. To this day it remains a movie that I don't mind watching again and again.

I really liked that my daughter was enjoying it too. It's nice to know that movies that I liked at her age still hold their entertainment value. We didn't watch the whole movie as we ended up watching Lie To Me. I love that show. Never the less The Goonies has been on my mind today and just thinking about it makes me smile. What a fun movie. If you've never seen it check it out. It's about a group of kids that end up going on a treasure hunt right before their homes are going to be destroyed by land developers. It's a great adventure and it's rated PG so it's good clean fun.

I remember my boys watching this movie when they were tweens. They are in their twenties now and still love "The Goonies."

You know what else is a wonderful oldie but goodie? Sandlot! I got that on VHS at a thrift store and the kids were NOT impressed. I put it on and five minutes into it ALL of us were on the couch glued to the TV. "You're KILLING me Smalls!"
