Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon films) and Chris Columbus (Harry Potter films) collaborate to create an epic children's adventure of subterranean caverns, sunken galleons and a fortune in lost pirate treasure waiting to be found by a group of friends known as the Goonies. With brothers Mikey (Sean Astin) and Brand's (Josh Brolin) house slated for demolition by greedy land developers, the boys decide their only hope lies in finding a long-lost treasure. They uncover a treasure map and with their friends descend to a subterranean sea and an abandoned galleon in this fun-filled, fast-paced adventure.

Classic '80s adventure has lots of swearing, some scares.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Goonies is a rambunctious, noisy, pirate-themed treasure-hunt action-fantasy -- all the ingredients that kids will love. Kids are in peril, find a dead body, are being hunted by thieves who are after their treasure map, and fall into all kinds of trouble. Beyond the (now-dated) special effects, cavernous (literally) 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 -- the fat kid, the jock older brother, the Asian who's a gadget fanatic, etc. A physically disabled grown man is considered a "monster" by his family and is chained up under the stairs. Expect some vulgar humor and swearing (including "s--t"). There are jokes about a nude classical statue's genitalia, and a teen boy adjusts his rearview mirror to see up a cheerleader's skirt. The movie may be too scary for some kids, so know your kid before you watch.
