Classic '80s adventure has lots of swearing, some scares.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Goonies is a thrilling '80s pirate-themed treasure hunt action-fantasy -- all the ingredients that kids will love. Kids are in constant peril, as they're being hunted by thieves who are after their treasure map. Beyond the (now-dated) special effects, cavernous sets, stunts, hideous skeletons, and outsized props, there's a message about being yourself and bonding with your friends and siblings -- even if they're outcasts. Some stereotyping includes fat-phobic jokes, an Asian character who's a gadget fanatic, Italian American mobsters, and, most offensively, a tall man with a facial difference who's considered a "monster" by his family and chained up under the stairs. Expect some crass humor and swearing (including "s--t"). There are jokes about a nude classical statue's genitalia, and panties are briefly visible when a teen boy adjusts his mirror to see up a teen girl's skirt without her consent. However, characters do demonstrate curiosity, perseverance, and teamwork. The movie may be too scary for some kids.
