THE GOONIES (Theatrical Release USA 1985)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

The Goonies
—fun watch that sets young actors up for future films—works as a ‘feel good’ adventure for the teen audience. Great work for Director Richard Donner. It unforgettably captures the young teen spirit and becomes a re-watch over the years.
