I saw The Goonies in the theater in 1985. I was 12 years old and after I saw it, I’m a bit embarrassed to say I developed a huge crush on Corey Feldman who played Mouth in the movie. I ripped out all of his posters from Teen Beat magazine and decorated my walls. Looking back, I can’t imagine how I didn’t notice that Josh Brolin was the hot one. Anyway, The Goonies was a fun film from my childhood and probably yours too. As part of Montclair Film Festival’s Summer Screening series, it will screen on July 18 at the Montclair Public Library.
Grab some chairs and bring your kids to experience The Goonies! Or, get a sitter and go revisit your childhood—Goonies never say die!
A family favorite of kids and adults alike since its release in 1985, The Goonies (written by Steven Spielberg) plunges a band of small heroes into a swashbuckling surprise-around-every corner quest beyond their wildest dreams! Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys…and a mild mannered monster with a face only a mother could love.
Just to hear this song again is good enough.
