  • I would not take very young children to see The Goonies - too intense. I would also discourage any adults who are borderline in their liking of children from seeing this film. The Goonies could easily turn a lot of otherwise tolerant grownups against children, and I'm assuming that would be a terrible thing. [7 Jun 1985, p.75] show more

  • Actually, maybe the movie is better than it seems to be -- I just couldn't understand what anyone was saying. The dialogue came across as clear as schoolyard chatter during recess -- and just about as pleasant to listen to. There is a water slide, a pirate ship and an amusing little chubbikins (Jeff Cohen) who squirts Reddi Wip directly into his mouth. [20 Jun 1985, p.1] show more

  • 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. show more

    i rated this movie 5 stars. it's my favorite movie of all time! it's about a group of kids who go on an adventure to save their home. there's action, comedy, and love. every time me and my friend Paula have a sleep over we always watch this movie. this is a movie not only children would love, but the whole family would enjoy. i would recommend this movie to any1. If you can't find it on DVD, you could find on abcfamily. It was on that channel not that long ago. Or if u have Netflix u can order ******** not on instant queue. Good luck if your looking for it. i hope you like it as much as i do.
